Hamas' Sick, Sick Smuggling Policy By: Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, June 22, 2009


The Palestinian Authority has announced that Hamas is using "women and the sick" to illegally smuggle money to purchase military equipment.
 
This announcement in the official PA newspaper is additional justification for Israel's policy of checking civilians at roadblocks.
 
For years, Israel has blamed the suffering of civilians at roadblocks on terror infrastructures of both Hamas and Fatah, who have used civilians to transport bombs, weapons and money to finance terror.
 
Following is the translation of the announcement:

Hamas uses women and the sick to transfer money illegally. The [Palestinian Authority] security services arrested six Hamas members and confiscated more than a million Euros that was in their possession... Nablus Governor Jamal Muhaysin clarified that the security forces [of the Palestinian Authority] confiscated documents dealing with the transfer of 38,000 Jordanian Dinars from abroad that were used for acquisition of arms for Hamas. He said that "Hamas is using women and the sick to transfer money illegally."
