In a shocking video that was presented today by former Muslim Brotherhood member and now peace activist, Walid Shoebat, shows a Hamas official declaring that Palestinians do not exist and never have existed while complaining about the lack of fuel from Egypt to wage Jihad.
The video was presented by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) who explores the Middle East through the region’s media. MEMRI bridges the language gap which exists between the West and the Middle East, providing timely translations of Arabic, Persian, Urdu-Pashtu, and Turkish media, as well as original analysis of political, ideological, intellectual, social, cultural, and religious trends in the Middle East.
In the video, the Hamas official explains who the Palestinians are and that none of them are Palestinian but of Egyptian and Saudi descent; all with Arab ties.
The official starts out his complaint by saying, "Is Egypt incapable of supplying fuel for 1.5 to 2 million people in the Gaza strip?”
The Hamas official is complaining that Egypt is not sending them fuel not for luxury, to eat, or to live but to they need to continue to wage war.
"Brothers, there are 1.8 million of us in Gaza. In Egypt, there are about 90 million people. When we seek their [Egypt] help, it is in order to continue to wage Jihad,” the Hamas official said.
"Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.”
Hamas is the largest and most influential Palestinian militant movement and grew out of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, a religious and political organization founded in Egypt with branches throughout the Arab world.
After viewing the video, Mr. Shoebat commented on his blog by saying, "Our work is done here…Oh, wait. You mean even this isn’t enough to convince the liberal media?”
