Russia continues to embrace the jihad.
“Russia confirms Hamas officials invited to Moscow for talks,” by Avi Issacharoff for Haaretz:
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said his country is holding talks with Hamas in order find solutions for the conflict in the Middle East, Israel Radio reported on Saturday.
“It’s important to hold such talks and countries that do not do so are wrong,” he was quoted as saying.
Hamas lawmaker Halil al-Haya on Thursday claimed, however, that Russia had invited officials from the Islamic group to visit Moscow for talks.
Al-Haya told a Hamas-affiliated Palestinian magazine that the Russian government had officially invited a Hamas delegation, headed by Damascus-based Hamas political leader Khaled Meshal, to Moscow. Al-Haya would not specify the date, but said the visit would be in the coming days.
Being that Russia is building the Iranian nuke plant and is arming Iran as well as Syria, it is only natural that Hamas would be a welcome houseguest.
A Lavrov quote at Interfax goes one step further:
“Moscow confident of the need to continue contacts with Hamas and deems it a mistake that some countries have not recognized Palestinian National Unity Government”
Talking to Hamas is not enough. Recognition is required as well.
It’s 1967 all over again.
