Hamas: US Prefers Israel Over Arabs

The top Hamas leader is accusing the United States of preferring its alliance with Israel over its interests in other parts of the Middle East.

Ismail Haniyeh says Tuesday that U.S. Vice President Mike Pence’s tour in Israel was “unwelcome,” adding that his speech before the Israeli Knesset a day earlier “proves the USA has a strategic alliance with the Zionist entity.”

America “doesn’t take the interests and requirements of the Islamic and Arab nation into consideration,” Haniyeh said in a televised speech from Hamas controlled Gaza.

He accused the Trump administration of targeting “the principles of the Palestinian cause” by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and cutting funds to UNRWA, the United Nations agency responsible for Palestinians refugees.
