Hamas ditches Assad

Two speeches by leaders of the Hamas terror group on Friday indicate that Hamas is abandoning Bashar al-Assad (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
"I salute all the nations of the Arab Spring and I salute the heroic people of Syria who are striving for freedom, democracy and reform," Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, visiting Egypt from the Gaza Strip, told thousands of Friday worshippers at Cairo's al-Azhar mosque.

"We are marching towards Syria, with millions of martyrs," chanted worshippers at al-Azhar, home to one of the Sunni world's highest seats of learning. "No Hezbollah and no Iran.

"The Syrian revolution is an Arab revolution."


In Gaza, senior Hamas member Salah al-Bardaweel addressed thousands of supporters at a rally in Khan Younis refugee camp, sending "a message to the peoples who have not been liberated yet, those free peoples who are still bleeding every day."

"The hearts of the Palestinian people bleed with every drop of bloodshed in Syria," Bardaweel said. "No political considerations will make us turn a blind eye to what is happening on the soil of Syria."
If this means that Iran stops supporting Hamas, that could be good for Israel. After all, Egypt has no money. On the other hand, one has to wonder whether this will cause Assad to turn on the 'Palestinian refugees' within his country - a move for which Israel could be blamed.
