A statement from Israel’s security force, the Shin Bet, said its agents shut down “two Jerusalem offices, from which the Hamas terror organization had been conducting actions.”

Israeli security forces said that the offices belonged to Al-Quds Development and Amara al-Aqsa, two charities based in the northern Israeli cities of Umm al-Fahm and Nazareth, AFP reported.

The Al-Quds Development office had originally been shut down in 2010 after it was discovered the office was working with Hamas. The Shin Bet said Amarat al-Aqsa was also supporting activities for Hamas that “led to violence against visitors and security forces on the Temple Mount.”

    Why in the world had they been permitted to operate in Israel in the first place ? Did the Israeli government really believe they were charitable, peace-loving organizations ?
