Hamas to Buy N. Korean Weapons as Kerry Pledges $47 Million in Gaza Aid

Wouldn’t a direct wire transfer from the White House to Pyongyang have saved on the wire transfer fees?

I suppose the timing could be just coincidental.

The Telegraph reports that Hamas has may have already put down a down payment on a secret weapons and communications equipment deal worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Hamas needs the deal to replenish their weapon stockpiles emptied out from attacking Israel. They are also looking to buy new communications equipment to help better coordinate their attacks on Israel.

Keeping in mind that money is fungible and Hamas are experts at redirecting foreign aid, this report comes hard on the heels of the report that US Secretary of State John Kerry is sending $47 million to Gaza for humanitarian aid. $15 million of that aid has been earmarked for UNRWA. UNRWA schools have been used to store Hamas rockets, and UNRWA officials have even transferred rockets to Hamas.

So doing the math, $47 million in US aid to Gaza, is $47 million that Hamas doesn’t need to spend on its population, and that’s before before Hamas takes its cut.

With money like that flowing in, North Korea knows Hamas is good for the money.

Wouldn’t a direct wire transfer from the White House to Pyongyang have saved on the wire transfer fees?
