Saudi Columnist: Hamas Leader Khaled Mash'al Is Trading in the Palestinian Cause

(MEMRI) In a column in Al-Watan (Saudi Arabia) on June 30, Al-Arabiya TV presenter Turki Al-Dakhil slammed Hamas Political Bureau leader Khaled Mash'al, accusing him of supporting the Syrian regime at the expense of both the Syrian people and the Palestinian cause. "Since December 2010, [reports] commenting on the Palestinian cause have become few, and even scarce. [Instead,] the coverage has focused on Syria, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, and Egypt - [everything] except for Palestine....The reason for the absence of coverage is the abyss that has formed between the Palestinian statesmen and the [rest of] the world." "In the past decade, many Palestinian [flaws] have been exposed, for instance [the fact] that the [Palestinian] cause has become a tool for bargaining, making profits, exerting pressures, and [gaining] influence. This has turned Hamas into part of the Iranian axis at the expense of the Arabs, who struggled alongside the Palestinians, whereas Iran never fired a single bullet at any Israeli target." "The [flaw] most recently [exposed] is that the Syrian regime is more important to Hamas than the Syrian people....[Hamas] immediately turned into the Syrians' enemy, supporting every step taken by the [Syrian] regime."
