JNS.org – Hamas slammed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for attending the mass anti-terror rally in Paris on Sunday.

“This behavior is part of the hypocrisy and political juggling act Abbas is used to; he thinks that this will earn the sympathy of nations,” said Hamas senior official Mahmoud Zahar, Yedioth Ahronoth reported. “First he should take care of his own people.”

ISIS Test Chemical Weapons on ‘Human Guinea Pigs,’ Secret Documents Reveal

The Hamas statement follows recent reports that the unity government between Hamas and Abbas’s Fatah party has ended. Hamas, the Palestinian terror group that rules Gaza, has accused Abbas of ignoring Gaza and reconstruction efforts there following last summer’s war.

“Abbas wants to look as if he fights terrorism, even though he does not know the meaning of terrorism,” Zahar said.

In a previous statement, Hamas said there is “no justification” for the recent wave of terrorism in France, but did not specifically mention the attack on the HyperCacher kosher supermarket. Hamas’s statement did, however, mention the shooting at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

    I think that the man did an honorable thing by going over and standing with the people of France in this occasion.He could have made excuses like the golfing parrot did but he went and identified himself among the mourners . That sets him apart from many leaders of the Mid east. It would be unkind not to compliment him for going that far. When a man extends the hand of friendship.Do you slap him the face?

    Why don’t they both put down their arms thier hatreds and start building a nation. The other way has not worked so well for them, probably because it’s harder work and they are afraid. Building a nation like Israel from nothing is an act of faith and courage. As long as they blame the West and Israel they can fail and never blame themselves. Keep up the good work leaders of Fatah and Hamas, your people should strangle you for preventing you from having a worthwhile future. Yore failure is not from not being unable to defeat Israel its from not loving you own people more.

      The two sides might could find some ways to declare peace and find other things to do that would benefit the people on both sides.I hate neither side myself.I would like to see them working together in peace than killing each other.I think a lot of the trouble comes from outside to keep the fight going. It is a shame that the children of both sides grow up in the middle of a war zone.The liberal/socialist/communist claim it is only religion at the root of the matter.I remember the communist were there at the beginning. Mister Arafat was trained by the KGB. The Egyptians were supported by the USSR in about 67 .
