Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum said the crisis was due to "bad administrative and financial management and a bad banking system put into place and controlled by the Jewish lobby." He said the lobby "controls the U.S. elections and defines the foreign policy of any new administration in a manner that allows it to retain control of the American government and economy."
