Mahmoud a-Zahar, a top Hamas terrorist in Gaza, slammed Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas for participating in the anti-terror rally in Paris Sunday. A-Zahar called Abbas “hypocritical” for participating in the event, Arutz Sheva reports.
“The participation of Abbas in this event is part of the hypocrisy and political acrobatics that Abbas commonly participates in,” a-Zahar said. “Abbas wants to show that he can fight terror, but he does not even know the meaning of terror.”
In an interview, Arutz Sheva reported, he said that Hamas was opposed to the terror attack at the Charlie Hebdo magazine, in which 13 people were killed, saying that “Hamas was opposed to all acts of terror in any country.” He refused, however, to condemn the attack on the Hyper Cacher kosher grocery store on Friday, in which four Jews were killed.
