Pelosi: Qataris Have Told Me ‘Hamas Is a Humanitarian Organization’


pelosiHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says the United States must look to Qatar, an ally of the terrorist group Hamas, for advice in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

“And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization,” she told CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley.

As reported last week, Qatar is a strong supporter and funder of Hamas. Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal operates from Qatar, and has so far rejected ceasefire proposals put forward by Egypt and promoted by Secretary of State John Kerry.

The U.S government designated Hamas as a “foreign terrorist organization” in 1997. Its founding charter calls for Jews to be killed and says all Muslims are duty-bound to join a jihad to destroy Israel.

In an interview aired on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, Hamas leader Meshaal said Hamas does not fight the Jews just because they are Jews. “We fight the occupiers,” he said. As if he wants to recognize Israel as a Jewish state?, Meshaal said “No.”

“War is a deadly thing,” Pelosi said on Sunday, speaking about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“And I have many Palestinians who live in my district, and I am hearing them regularly about how their families are affected who live in the region. It’s a terrible thing. But let me just say that any missile that comes from someplace has a return address. And if Israel is responding to that address, then that’s a shame that the Palestinians are …rumored to be using children and families as shields for their missiles.”

Pelosi said the first thing to do is to “avoid conflict” that “Hamas initiated.”

“[T]his has to be something where we try to have the two-state solution, that we have to support…(Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud) Abbas and his role as a leader there. We have to support Iron Dome to protect the Israelis from the missiles. We have to support the Palestinians and what they need. And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization, maybe they could use their influence to–”

Crowley interrupted her to ask: “The U.S. thinks they’re a terrorist organization though, correct? Do you?”

Pelosi responded: “Mmm hmm.”

Crowley said: “Yeah.”

And Pelosi said: “And we’ve had that discussion.”

  1. Is Nancy Pelosi THAT gullible enough to even think that Hamas is a “humanitarian organization”? The Qataris must think so if they have been telling her this “over and over again”.

    She has been in Congress WAY too long past her retirement time.

  2. PELOSI – why don’t you travel to GAZA yourself and see what HAMAS did with all the money YOU gave them – count how many ROCKETS they bought from Iran & North Korea, counts how many tunnels they built with the cement Israel sent them.

    SEEING IS BELIEVING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. and to think she was once speaker of the house what a shame on america there is nothing to comment on shes totally whacked

  4. Pelosi is a fool. If she would take the time to read Hamas’ Covenant she would find that it calls for the killing of all Jews. It does not say Israeli’s but Jews.It also calls for Muslims to eventually control both jews and Christians.

  5. Nancy Pelosi has more loose screws than Lowe’s and Home Depot combined. The fact that she keeps being reelected shows that her constituents are even nuttier than she is.

  6. So she’s been told “over and over that Hamas is a humanitarian organization.”

    Sure. Just like we were told over and over, “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
