[…] the Hamas campaign of violence continues unabashedly, in full swing, proving
that terrorists can both “govern” and kill at the same time.
"With hearts full of faith, Hamas commends brother-fighter Abu Musab Zarqawi… who
was martyred at the hands of the savage crusade campaign which targets
the Arab homeland, starting in Iraq,"
Hamas: "If We Want to, We’ll Kill Abbas" – Adnan Asfor, spokesman for Hamas in the West Bank, discussed reports that Abbas’
personal guard had received 3,000 new M16 rifles: "Abbas can put an F-16 plane
in front of his house, but if we want to kill him, we’ll kill him."
Despite the Senate Voting to Block
Aid to Palestinians last Friday and the international cut off off off funds to Hamas, their murder and terror continue unabated.Who is funding the "Firing Rockets on Israel and Trying to Intentionally Kill Civilians
Is a War Crime." Michael I. Krauss & J. Peter Pham expose the duplicious dealings of our friend, the Saudis.
Despite its increasingly bloody record — or perhaps because of it — Hamas was
elected to run the Palestinian Authority government.
How does this terrorist group continue operating despite the international
boycott? An incident on June 13 involving PA Foreign Minister Mahmoud al-Zahar
is telling. The Hamas leader was briefly stopped, but otherwise unhindered, as
he transited through the international airport in Cairo with seven suitcases
stuffed with an estimated $20 million. At the Rafah crossing-point from Sinai to
Gaza, European monitors asked al-Zahar to explain the small fortune in his
luggage, but did not detain him when he proved unresponsive. Then Palestinian
Force 17 militiamen aligned with Fatah and President Abbas asked him to sign a
guarantee that the money would be deposited in the Palestinian exchequer.
Al-Zahar told them that he would think about it, then drove off. The foreign
minister is the third Hamas official to enter at the Rafah crossing into Gaza
carrying large amounts of cash. Last month, a Hamas lawmaker passed through with
$4.5 million in banknotes. Before that, a Hamas spokesman brought in $800,000.
Not a single dollar of these cash deliveries ever reached official Palestinian
national coffers. Rather, Palestinian sources report that the cash covered the
wages of Hamas’s militiamen and “security forces” — that is, the hired killers
of “one of the deadliest terrorist organizations in the world today.”
the provenance of this money? Ironically, given President Bush’s pledge that
“those who do business with terror will do no business with the United States,”
much of it comes from a country whose princes are regular guests at the Crawford
According to Israel’s Center for Special Studies, as of 2003, up
to 60 percent of Hamas’s annual budget came from Saudi Arabia, including from
official sources, government-sponsored telethons, and government-run charities,
as well as from Saudi individuals and organizations. The Saudi flow of money to
Hamas has been so great, historically, that long before he became PA president,
Mahmoud Abbas was complaining about it, as attested to by a December 2000 letter
he wrote to Prince Salman, governor of Riyadh, discovered by Israeli forces
during Operation Defensive Shield in April 2002. (hat tip ab)
