Hamas’s Re-Entry Into Iran’s Orbit Contributes To Its Isolation

Following a split with Tehran due to differences over the Syrian civil war, Hamas recently decided to patch up its relationship with Iran, and Iranian cash is once again pouring into the Gaza Strip.

Hamas’s new relations with Iran are flourishing just as the Assad regime, a close Iranian ally that has received massive Iranian battlefield and material assistance, commits another chemical atrocity.

“Hamas finds itself at a crossroads in regards to its relationship with Iran, and the puppet organization of the Iranian sphere in the region, Hizballah,” Boaz Ganor, Executive Director of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism, in Herzliya, Israel, told the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

“Traditionally, Hamas’s relations with Iran have been complex, since Hamas has been a branch of the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood in the Palestinian arena, which receives patronage from a Shi’ite entity. Therefore, unlike Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas hesitated about being affiliated with Iran and the Shi’ites.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
