Hamas has launched a definite charm offensive. Ismail Haniya’s office has invited correspondents on a first of its kind tour of the Gaza Strip this Monday. Here’s the email invitation:

Dear Madams/Sirs,

More than a month ago, the Palestinians reclaimed the Gaza Strip from not only the full organized anarchy but also from the insecurity state and the lawlessness. Gaza now is in a new shape, Gaza is looking forward to promising and prosperous future, regardless of the obstacles that encounter the people in Gaza. On behalf of the provisional government and the people of Palestine, the Prime Minister Ismael Haniya is honored to invite you to visit the Gaza strip with other journalists, to see the new face of Gaza: Safe, clean and green.
