The Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas operates in difficult circumstances but its leaders continue to make serious blunders in their choices.
Muslims worldwide have great sympathy for the oppressed Palestinian people. Since Hamas claims to be the leading Islamic movement, their admiration is naturally directed towards it. Yet Hamas leaders have repeatedly made serious mistakes. Their latest was aligning themselves with the Saudi regime. Don’t they know that the Najdi Bedouins are close allies of the Zionists and will sell them and the Palestinians? How many planes or guns have the Saudis given to the Palestinians to fight their oppressors? The Saudis would rather fund people to kill Muslims.
