UN Envoy Caught Trying to Send $20 Mil to Hamas

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On June 21, 2014 @ 11:46 pm In The Point | No Comments

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.
