Weapons, money, men

Once again, Hamas makes its priorities clear.
"We ask all the people in surrounding Arab countries, the Muslim world and everyone who wants to support us to send weapons, money and men," Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal said in a speech at a pro-Palestinian event in Qatar.

"You should not shy away from of this. This is resistance, not terrorism," said Meshaal whose group -- sworn to the destruction of Israel -- leads the Palestinian government.

Somehow he didn't seem to ask for food, or medical supplies, or fuel, or any of the other things that are causing the bogus "humanitarian crisis" that the West is so upset about.

And, of course Reuters has to add this lie at the end of the article:
Hamas, which has largely abided by a ceasefire for more than a year, has been under increasing Western and Israeli financial pressure to recognize the Jewish state, abandon armed struggle and accept interim Israeli-Palestinian peace deals.
