Iran And Hamas

First it was Nasrallah admitting that Iran and Syria were directly involved in helping Hezbollah- now we have news of Iranians manufacturing weapons and explosives for Hamas.

A Palestinian source has said that the Iranian general nabbed in Gaza by Palestinian security officers supervised the manufacturing weapons and explosives for Hamas. The source told Ynet on Friday that the expert was in charge of several labs in the university, mainly chemistry labs in which he trained Hamas activists, most of them women, manufacturing the explosives.

At least five Iranian citizens were arrested during a raid at the Islamic University, a Hamas stronghold in Gaza City. One of the Iranians committed suicide during the raid. Six to nine Palestinians were killed in the raid, sources said.

The raid on the Hamas-linked university in Gaza was carried out by national security forces affiliated with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Hundreds of weapons and a lathe for the production of Qassam rockets were seized in the raid.

Good thing we're waiting for Iran to become nuclear before we do anything about their links to terrorism, isn't it? Specifically, links to a terrorist group intent on attacking a key US ally and which has directly threatened the United States itself.

Bombing. Campaign. Iran. A few words to ponder.
