Report: Hamas Now Officially Part of The Muslim Brotherhood…


Since Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. State Department can the Obama regime continue to have official ties to the Muslim Brotherhood without being in violation of the law?
(Ynet) — A senior Hamas source told the London-based Arabic-language al-Hayat newspaper on Saturday that the Palestinian organization has joined the global movement of the Muslim Brotherhood.
According to the source, the move took place as early as two months ago. The expression “a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood — Palestine” has been added to Hamas’ official name — “The Islamic Resistance Movement.”
The source added that the move had nothing to do with recent changes in the Middle East following the Arab Spring.
“Following thorough discussions, which lasted more than a year and a half, we saw the need to take this step as the movement is growing and there was a need to lead it to independence instead of being dependent on the Muslim Brotherhood organization in Jordan.
“Hamas no longer belongs to any organization, but has become completely independent,” he said, adding that the group was now part of the global Muslim Brotherhood organization and was officially represented there.
Despite its official admission into the global organization, the source noted that Hamas would continue carrying the flag of armed resistance.
