Senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar: “Those who are happy about the assassination of Qasem Soleimani are the gays of the Arab nation who have normalized relations with Israel”
Senior Hamas figure Mahmoud al-Zahar is at it again… The Hamas co-founder and former PA foreign minister made some amusing remarks in the past (some damaging Hamas’ image), but this time he managed to outdo himself.
In recent days, al-Zahar has led ceremonies in Gaza on behalf of Hamas to mark the second anniversary of the assassination of Qasem Soleimani.
In one of these ceremonies, al-Zahar gave a speech in which he used the word “شواذ” (Shawath), a derogatory term in the Arabic language for homosexuals, to describe those who were happy with the assassination of Soleimani. According to him, these “Arab Zionists” are the same “gays of the Arab Ummah” who normalized relations with Israel.
In a different ceremony in Gaza, he referred to the Saudis as “stupid Arabs whose money was stolen by Trump”.
