Last month on As the Jihad Turns, the Muslim Brotherhood came to power in Egypt and tried to take over Syria. Hamas, a Muslim Brotherhood outlet, was in bed with Iran, but Iran was fighting the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria.
Hamas was asked to choose between Egypt and Iran. Hamas’ so-called political wing chose Egypt and Qatar for the money. Hamas’ military wing tried to choose Iran for the weapons. But then had to choose Egypt anyway.
Hamas publicly dumped Iran. Iran stopped sending Hamas money and weapons. Then Morsi was overthrown. Hamas is no longer popular in Egypt. Morsi is on trial for collaborating with Hamas.
Hamas spokesman Salah Bardawil, speaking to the Xinhua news agency, stated that Hamas is “ready and welcomes all forms of dialogue with Iran to strengthen relations between the two sides.”
Bardawil said that relations between Hamas and Iran “had not been interrupted at all” but he admitted that “they have become frosty since the crisis in Syria … but we emphasize that Hamas does not want to drop relations with any Arab or Muslim party that supports the Palestinian cause.”
On Tuesday, Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Araghchi announced that Iran and Mahas we resolving issues that caused “misunderstandings” between them.
This is what makes Iran so pathetic. As isolated Shiites, they’re ready to suffer any insult from Sunni terrorist groups. If you’re Al Qaeda or Taliban or Hamas, you can slap Iran around and Iran will take it. You can do anything you like to Iran and the Ayatollahs will still keep crawling back.
If Al Qaeda offered Iran a deal, after all the spilled blood, Iran’s Islamist leaders would take it and count themselves lucky.
Hamas can dump Iran and come crawling back and Iran will take it back and they’ll hug and promise that this time will be different. And then the Brotherhood will take over Syria and we’re back to square one.
