In the wake of reports that Hamas has stolen tens of millions from funds meant to help the Palestinian people, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke out in a video yesterday. JNS reports on the PM's remarks slamming the treatment of Palestinians by those who claim to be their leaders:
“I, the Prime Minister of Israel, care more about Palestinians than their own leaders do,” Netanyahu said in a video address posted on his Facebook page on Thursday.
“Israel cares more about Palestinians than their own leaders do,” Netanyahu added.
Netanyahu’s remarks focused on the recent reports of Hamas operatives who worked inside the Gaza humanitarian aid organizations World Vision and the United Nations Development Program to funnel millions of dollars in aid money to the terror group over the last several years.
“A few days ago, the world learned that Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules Gaza, stole millions of dollars from humanitarian organizations like World Vision and the United Nations,” Netanyahu said. “Innocent and impoverished Palestinians were denied vital aid supplied from nations around the world. Hamas used this stolen money to build a war machine to murder Jews.”
“I want you to think about that. Let that sink in,” the Israeli leader said.
