My previous post on the “Palestinians Abroad” conference that was held in Istanbul last weekend mentioned the tension that it caused between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA). The conference was supported by Hamas, whereas the PA wants to pretend that it’s the sole representative of Palestinians worldwide.

In response, Mahmoud Habash, the PA’s Religious Affairs Minister and a top Abbas aide, said that the conference was a “meeting of Satans.”

Naturally, Hamas had to answer this insult. And what better way to do that than to make Habash look like a Hasidic Jew?

The poster quotes Habash as saying, “Palestinian blood is like Israeli blood,” and calls him the “Minister of Jewish Temples in Ramallah.”
