Hamas blasts US presidential hopefuls for AIPAC speeches

The Palestinian Hamas terror group condemns US presidential candidates for their unabashedly pro-Israel speeches before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee this week.

“Hamas condemns the racist statements made by American presidential candidates that sanctify the Zionist entity at the expense of Palestinian rights,” the group’s spokesman, Sami Abu Zuhri, says in a statement.

“The state of frantic competition between the American candidates supports the occupation and the enemies of the Palestinian people, and represents a true disgrace for the American political system and a provocation against the feelings of our Palestinian people and our Arab and Islamic nations,” he adds.
