Donald Trump. Photo: Gage Skidmore via Wikimedia Commons. – A senior official from the Palestinian terror group Hamas told Al Jazeera earlier this month that President-elect Donald Trump might actually be Jewish, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported.

According to the report, Mahmoud al-Zahar said, “Trump loves the Jews, and not only because he likes the Jewish religion. I do not rule out the possibility that he is a Jew. He loves the Jewish religion, and the most important thing in the Jewish religion is Jewish money.”

Following Trump’s election victory, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said, however, that the identity of the US president makes little difference.

“The Palestinian people is not very much concerned about the changes in American policies towards the Palestinian cause because such a policy is constant and is based on bias in favor of the Israeli occupation,” Zuhri said. “However, we urge the American president to reevaluate this policy and to work on bringing justice to the Palestinians.”

    How boring, unoriginal and old hat. However, looking at the Hamasniks’ foreheads, I definitely think they are descended from Neanderthals. However, don’t anyone dare stop them. Let them continue to be monumentally stupid and annoy the USA, Trump and the whole world.

    The Trumps are of German origin, not Swedish as they had earlier said. Being successful in business does not make you Jewish. Regarding Hamas, Ariel Sharon moved evey Jew out of Gaza so the PA could set up stage one of the PA state. Two years later Hamas had taken over Gaza, killed Fata officials and turned Gaza into a launch pad for thousands of rockets to be fired ito Southern Israel. How can Hamas complain about lack of American support when they are determined to destroy Israel and not determined to build a Pal stte.

      Palestinians could not care less if they were ruled by the Ottoman Empire, by the British Empire, by Egypt and Jordan or if they have a State of their own. All they care about is destroying Israel, what happens after that is not relevant at all.

    “justice for the palestinians” should start with removing the terrorist groups that have taken over the territories, especially hamas.

    Well, those who admire Jews at least partly because they believe Jews are shrewd businessmen and “good with money” tread the line between Judeophilia and Judeophobia.
