Hamas blames financial crisis on you-know-who

AFP reports:

The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas which rules the Gaza Strip on Tuesday blamed what it called a “Jewish lobby” in the US for the global financial crisis.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum said in a statement that the crisis was due to “bad administrative and financial management and a bad banking system put into place and controlled by the Jewish lobby.”

While pumping hundreds of billions of dollars into a rescue package, US President George W. Bush has remained silent about “the Jewish lobby that put the US banking and financial sector into place,” he said.

Ah, but never mind. John Molyneux of the Socialist Workers Party assures us that Hamas members who say this, and supporters who believe it, are still “more progressive than an educated liberal atheist Israeli who supports Zionism (even critically).”
