Iran's Newest Palestinian Proxy

(Gatestone Institute) Khaled Abu Toameh - Al-Sabireen ("the Patient Ones") has recruited hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza, many of them former members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, together with many disgruntled Fatah activists. Al-Sabireen considers Hamas "soft" on Israel because it does not wage daily terror attacks. Al-Sabireen has described the nuclear deal and the lifting of sanctions against Tehran as a "victory" for all Muslims and proof of their "pride and strength." Muslims should now unite to stand up to the "world's arrogance and remove the Zionist entity from the land of Palestine." According to PA security sources, Al-Sabireen has already located some West Bank Palestinians who were more than happy to join the group's jihad against Jews and Israel. PA security forces recently arrested five members of an Al-Sabireen terror cell in Bethlehem. Iran is now free to underwrite terror throughout the region, including in the West Bank and Gaza. The future of the Middle East will be shockingly different if any Palestinian state were to fall into the hands of Iran's Islamic extremists and their allies.
