UN envoy Robert Serry denies he was trying to secretly funnel $20 million dollars to Hamas. He was trying to openly funnel $20 million dollars to Hamas.

Serry claims that Palestinian Unity Government (PUG) Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah had asked him to help resolve the payroll crisis in Gaza, where Hamas terrorists, now part of PUG, hadn’t been paid. Hamdallah asked Serry to check about receiving funding from Qatar to pay them.

The payroll deficit resulted in violence and Gazan banks closing for a few days after the newly formed Palestinian Unity Government only paid Fatah terrorist salaries, but not Hamas terrorist salaries in Gaza.

Serry claims he only inquiried to see if all sides would consent to $20 million dollars from Qatar being transferred to pay Hamas terrorist salaries and that he wasn’t trying to do it without consent from Israel, the UN, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

Serry claims COGAT (Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories) agreed that Qatari money could be transferred only to buy fuel, but not to pay Hamas terrorist salaries.

Foreign Minister Liberman wants Serry expelled from Israel.

Prime Minister Netanyahu explicitly told UN chief Ban Ki-moon, that Israel opposes the transfer of money from Qatar to Hamas.

Israel has also made it clear that Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority must break off all connection to the Hamas terrorist group.

So which is worse? A UN envoy trying to openly or secretly fund Hamas terrorists in Gaza?

  1. Deport Serry the Useless Nations is full of Anti-Semites who want to see Israel wiped out. What's he doing in Israel anyway? Kick him out!!!

  2. Yes through Serry out.

  3. Kenneth Schreier says:

    Just ban him from entering the arab occupied areas of Israel. If he is caught, Israel should put him on trial as a collaborator who is illegally supporting the terrorist group Hamas.

  4. Robin Rosenblatt says:

    So he not ashamed to fund Terrorists he does it openly.

  5. David Boykin says:

    SPERRY SHOULD BE EXPELLED AND NO UN FUNDS SHOULD GO TO TERRORIST, THIS INCLUDES THE US FUNDS TO PUG.

  6. Carl Caldera says:

    Too bad the mossad didn't deal with Hamas to begin with.

  7. Basha Kline says:

    He is, as his name implies "serried" which means close together, as soldiers – well let him be with the hamas, chuck him out immediately from Israel and his family – no good keeping a janus in the house.

  8. What value does the UN have for Israel ?

  9. The UN is an impotent body and has become the world leader in anti-semitic, anti-Zionist and Israel decisions and statements.
    They ignore the suffering of the Christian people and women in Moslem countries, starvation in Africa and the use of chemicals in Assad's murderous regime.

  10. Unfortunately, we stand alone.
