Hamas joins Syrian rebels

Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. They also claim Abdullah Azzam as one of their influences and founders. He also co-founded al-Qaeda with Osama Bin Laden. Therefore its no surprise that Hamas is now supporting the Syrian rebels who are Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda fighters. They are training them on tunnel digging.

The military unit of Hamas has broken ties with former ally Syrian President Bashar Assad and began training members of the opposition’s Free Syrian Army in Damascus, the Times of London reported on Friday.

Anonymous diplomatic sources told the Times that members of the Izzadin Kassam Brigades were training FSA units in the rebel-held neighborhoods of Yalda, Jaramana and Babbila in the Syrian capital.

“The Kassam Brigades have been training units very close to Damascus. These are specialists. They are really good,” a Western diplomat with contacts in both the Assad regime and the Syrian opposition told the London daily newspaper.

According to the Times, Hamas has been helping the FSA in digging a tunnel beneath Damascus in preparation for an attack on the city, a skill that Hamas has honed since constructing previous tunnels to smuggle supplies from Egypt into the Gaza Strip.

As it stands, the Syrian War is Turkey/Qatar/Saudi Arabia/The Muslim Brotherhood/al-Qaeda/Hamas vs. Assad/Hizb’Allah/Iran/Iraqi Shiites.

I just love this conflict!

    Their Iranian masters will not be happy. I take this report somewhat skeptically.

    @ Speranza:

    Hamas is not with Iran anymore. They are with Turkey and Qatar.

    @ Speranza:

    Hamas breaks with Iran.

    Hamas is Muslim Brotherhood. The MB is behind the Syria buprising. They are supporting their own side.

    This gives us the opportunity for some hot Hamas on Hezbollah action! I hope this is true. We’ll see. I am skeptical of any reports coming out of the middle east. Those people are all backstabbing each other. It is hard to keep track of who’s screwing whom at any given time.
