(JNS.org) In a video address, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the Palestinian terror group Hamas for stealing millions of dollars in international aid slated for the people of Gaza.
“I, the Prime Minister of Israel, care more about Palestinians than their own leaders do,” Netanyahu said in a video address posted on his Facebook page on Thursday.
“Israel cares more about Palestinians than their own leaders do,” Netanyahu added.
Netanyahu’s remarks focused on the recent reports of Hamas operatives who worked inside the Gaza humanitarian aid organizations World Vision and the United Nations Development Program to funnel millions of dollars in aid money to the terror group over the last several years.
“A few days ago, the world learned that Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules Gaza, stole millions of dollars from humanitarian organizations like World Vision and the United Nations,” Netanyahu said. “Innocent and impoverished Palestinians were denied vital aid supplied from nations around the world. Hamas used this stolen money to build a war machine to murder Jews.”
“I want you to think about that. Let that sink in,” the Israeli leader said.
