School Attacked in Gaza

The Jerusalem Post reports on the latest attack on intellectual freedom in the Gaza Strip:

Masked gunmen on Saturday morning blew up large parts of the American International School in the Gaza Strip after stealing equipment and furniture.


No group claimed responsibility for the predawn attack on the school, but Palestinian Authority security sources said they did not rule out the possibility that it was carried out by a local al-Qaida-linked group.

"The same people who have been attacking Internet cafes and music shops are also behind this despicable attack," the sources told The Jerusalem Post. "This is the only international school in the Gaza Strip and it's one of the most important academic institutions."
