By now most readers are aware of the news story regarding two members of the extreme right-wing American movement Boogaloo Bois being arrested for attempting to support the Palestinian terror group Hamas.
What’s really disturbing is that they weren’t doing so in support of the “Palestinian cause,” but rather the Boogaloo Bois thought that Hamas was going to help them overthrow US President Donald Trump.
Two members of the Boogaloo Bois were caught trying to give cash and weapons to an undercover FBI agent posing as a Hamas operative. As part of the ruse, the agent told the Boogaloo Bois that Hamas would act as mercenaries in the group’s campaign of violence against US government officials and property.
Hamas is recognized by the US State Department as a terrorist organization.
In 2013, in the last Palestinian Authority election, Palestinian voters gave Hamas a majority in parliament. When Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas did not fully accept the result of the vote by refusing to appoint Hamas’ leader as prime minister, the terror group violently seized control of the Gaza Strip.
While Hamas and Abbas’ own ruling Fatah movement do not see eye-to-eye on many issues, they are united in their hatred of Trump.
