Cypriot President Dimitris Christofias on Friday said a cargo ship searched by local authorities because it is suspected by the United States of carrying Iranian arms to Hamas in the Gaza Strip had violated UN resolutions. Officials refused to divulge any details about the ship or its cargo. “We’re handling this responsibly, I can’t at this time make any remarks that … may create more problems,” Christofias said.
Turkish PM, Recep Tayyip Erdogan caught pimping Hamas’ talking points at the World Economic Forum in Davos. Being an Islamist himself, it’s only natural he finds a “kindred spirit” in Hamas, the Palestinian version of the Muslim Brotherhood.
