Hamas has released a statement denying that they sent a message to Egypt via "Congressman" Jack Shepard.
The fake congressman, who visited Gaza last week, had told Egypt's Al Masry al-Youm newspaper that he was delivering a message from Hamas' Mahmoud al Zahar to Egypt's government.
Hamas, still unaware that Shepard is a convicted felon, a fraud and a nutcase, simply said that they do not need intermediaries to send messages to the Egyptians, especially not American messengers.
