Senior Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouk says a new intifada against Israel is beginning. Marzouk used to lead the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee, a secret structure designed to support the Hamas agenda. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is an entity of Marzouk's previous organization.
"We are facing a political failure for the Palestinian Authority and the beginning of a new popular intifada against Israel," he stated on Facebook.
The statement came shortly after Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad announced an agreement for a "joint command." The Palestinian Islamic Jihad recently held an event where hundreds of supporters demanded a new intifada.
