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?

  87. Scott Soffen says:

    AS A HUGE SUPPORTER OF ISRAEL I DO NOT SEE A NEED FOR YOUR CYNICAL COMMENTS ABOUT THE US, No one here complained while Israel dealt with South Africa during the years before Mandela. Israel does some pretty shady things at times. WE support you 100% and the world is screwed up when it comes to their anti Israel stances. BUT LAY OFF THE USA.

  120. Aaron Zelig says:

    We all know this makes no sense and is beyond moronic. The question is how do we get this funding for so called aid or in reality more rockets and weapons stopped?

  121. Aid? Like the cement used to build tunnels instead of schools?

  122. Kerry is a TOTAL DISASTER!!!

  123. for aid or for weapon?

  124. Where are these people coming from. They say they want the conflict to cease and then fund the one pushing the war.

  127. USA MUST THINK TWICE THEY USE IT TO TERRORIST THAT UNFAIR!

  128. NO aid to Gaza, unless ham as is defeated and wiped off the map.

  129. Give Israel the money!!!

  130. Kerry is idiot along with Obama. I pray for Israel to wipe out Hamas.

  131. Uzi Kattan says:

    Kerry and Obama are buying more missiles for Ham’Ass to shoot at Israel while calling for Israeli ‘restraint’. Israel should restrain Ham”Ass by wiping them out.

  132. Our ‘friends” in high places have very low IQs.

  133. Giving money to the enemy? Thanks Kerry, that’s as dumb as it gets.

  134. Obama sending money to his terrorist friends

  135. Let’s make Hamas rich off the tax payers dime. Gaza is a sewage dump because Hamas keeps the aid from US & the people suffer. They use their own people by brain washing them to hate Israel.

  136. Len Minowitz says:

    This is all of the citizen’s of the United States of America tax money and we don’t want our our tax money spent in this manner. So all of us taxpaying citizens should stop paying our taxes if we don’t like the way our money is thrown away. We have to STOP OUR LIAR IN CHIEF and NOW!

  137. Raine Balite says:

    kerry is a ****ing dick ****

  138. Let’s face it, our Clown President and his other clowns like Kerry have an agenda against Israel, and pro-Muslim. American tax dollars need to remain in the US as we have great financial issues within our borders. How dare this soon-to-be Impeached President give money to fuel Hamas under the guise of aide, and buying the weapons from North Korea. TOTAL CORRUPTION OF THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AND HIS ADMINISTRATION! THOSE WHO READ THIS CAN IGNORE IT, BE FOR THIS, OR JOIN MILLIONS OF ANGRY AMERICANS IN FORCING THE IMPEACHMENT OF THIS PRESIDENT FOR HIS AGENDA IS CLEARLY NOT IN THE INTEREST OF AMERICA. RATHER, THE MUSLIM PRESIDENT IS DEPLETING THE U.S. ABILITIES AND CAPABILITIES TO CONDUCT BUSINESS WITHIN THE U.S. AND AIDE THE POOR, ELDERLY, SICK, AND PROTECT, NOT WELCOME, INTRUDERS AT OUR BORDERS!!!!!!!

  139. Hi Keren. The agenda for this President is clearly defined as anti-Israel and pro Muslim, and worse still, pro Hamas. We need to wake up that the world takes notice of America and follows our President’s agenda of Anti-Semetism. Our country and its voting citizens need to make their statements of displeasure to their elected officials IMMEDIATELY, and simply find the Petition to Impeach President Obama online by just typing in Impeachment Petition and sign the Petition if you truely want a change in the U.S. Head of State, and the free-world will align themselves with our country once again. The only viable option for Americans now is to remove this President for his acts as a traitor and his misuse of our tax dollars. To not do anything, to not empower each American, is to side with the enemies who seek to destroy America, and our freedom and status of a democratic nation. IT IS YOUR CHOICE.

  140. how can we oust Kerry and Obama?????????? this is NO TIME for incompetence, ignorance and stupidity!!!

  141. Jay Robbins says:

    Kerry your CRAZY.
