UN Envoy Caught Trying to Send $20 Mil to Hamas

Obama is funding Hamas indirectly by continuing aid to the PLO\Hamas unity government, but the UN’s Mideast envoy is in trouble for taking a much more direct approach.


Robert Serry, the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process tried to find a way to transfer $20 million dollars from Qatar to Hamas.

According to diplomatic sources, Serry asked Israel and the Palestinian Authority to allow the transfer of the funds, but was met with refusals from both sides. He did not give up, however, and continued to push the idea through the UN institutions.

According to the sources, he wanted the money to be transferred to UN agencies, which would then transfer it to Hamas inside Gaza.

The sources said that Serry was trying to find an alternative avenue to getting funds to Hamas, since the Egyptians have closed the smuggling tunnels through which the money used to pass.

Serry is claiming that he would have only made the transfer if Israel had agreed to it, which it did not. Obviously.

The Qatar angle is interesting as it has its fingers in a lot of pies, including Hamas, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in general.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
