Hamas and North Korea Arms Deal

Heads up.
From The Telegraph:
Hamas militants are attempting to negotiate a new arms deal with North Korea for missiles and communications equipment that will allow them to maintain their offensive against Israel, according to Western security sources.

Security officials say the deal between Hamas and North Korea is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars and is being handled by a Lebanese-based trading company with close ties to the militant Palestinian organisation based in east Beirut.

Hamas officials are believed to have already made an initial cash down payment to secure the deal, and are now hoping that North Korea will soon begin shipping extra supplies of weapons to Gaza.

“Hamas is looking for ways to replenish its stocks of missiles because of the large numbers it has fired at Israel in recent weeks,” explained a security official. “North Korea is an obvious place to seek supplies because Pyongyang already has close ties with a number of militant Islamist groups in the Middle East.”

Using intermediaries based in Lebanon, Hamas officials are said to be intensifying their efforts to sign a new agreement with Pyongyang to provide hundreds of missiles together with communications equipment that will improve the ability of Hamas fighters to coordinate operations against Israeli forces.

    More and more astonishing developments. Perhaps Egypt and other Arab countries will join Israel in stopping the Islamists. It does not seem that any Europeans will; they are complicit and it’s not in their best interest to ignore the threats. No idea what the US will do…

    just read this before i came back to check your blog. Which is even moreso why the Israel needs to end this ceasefire crap and go back to bombing the hell out of the missile supplies. Are all the ports closed so that these arms will be discovered before they make it into Hamas’ hands?

    • Lynne says :

      The corrupt msm does not usually report it, but Egypt keeps the crossings closed more than Israel does. The Egyptian leadership does not want these weapons in the hands of Hamas, so I wonder what their response will be to kerry’s INSANE proposal. Kerry is a snake in the grass.

    Just amazing how much money these “poor, starving, downtrodden, persecuted, homeless palestinians have.” And why again do they need my tax money for their monstrous purchases??

      Nu, as far as I am concerned, the more he checks out, the better and the less harm he can do to either us or to the U.S. — when he’s active, he’s even more of a global disaster maker.

    • Lynne says :

      Larry007, it is hard to imagine anyone less suited for the presidency of the US than Obama. I don’t think he is even sane by any measure. He has established that he is dishonorable, abhorrent, morally-deficient.
