As the world focuses on Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, representing the ruling Fatah  party in the start of peace talks this week in Washington, Gaza based terror group Hamas, its domestic rival, is in total disarray, reports Israel Channel 2, citing sources in Gaza.

Channel 2 said thousands of Hamas activists and hundreds of leaders of its Islamist military wing have refused to work because of unpaid salaries last month, and some are threatening to revolt.

The loss of economic support from the closure of the tunnel network connecting Gaza to Egypt and the crises that Hamas’s sponsors, including Hezbollah, Syria, Iran, and, of course, the recently ousted Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood are dealing with, have severely curtailed the group’s revenue creation abilities.

Channel 2 also reported it has learned that the Qatari emirate, which gave Hamas “millions of dollars every month,” has now cut its ties with the group at the request of the new regime in Egypt.

    Funny how those “freedom fighters” are ready to be suicide bombers but cannot go without a paycheck. Strange kind of ideology. And i thought they would do anything to “liberate their land from the zionist occupiers” and her we see how a month wages can change completelly their beliefs.

    Now let’s REALLY do something effective against terrorism … let’s have ISRAEL cut off payments to the PA and all their kind.

  • This is not a good thing unless someone/country steps in? Suicide bombings, assassinations in neighbouring countries and an escalation of rocket attacks on Israel will provoke another Israeli retaliation.

    Good thin still happened.Praise the Lord.
