The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Shocka: Hamas Counterfeiting Egyptian Currency?

Who would've guessed that the perpetually aggrieved would stoop to such depths?

(autotranslated)Palestinian merchants who crossed in the last few days to the Egyptian territories for the purchase and needs to clinch deals to supply humanitarian needs of the sector, dealers Egyptians "The Hamas movement illegally provided a number of traders and citizens with counterfeit currencies to be used in Egyptian territory to the needs of wills and goods ".

He added traders and citizens that "elements of the militia movement Hamas provided currencies amounting to" hundreds of thousands of dollars that were "forged for inclusion in the Egyptian market and access to the goods and return trade deals have these militias share in these deals."

They pointed out that they have already managed to introduce these funds to the Egyptian market and the purchase of goods and basic needs and delivery of assistance to the Gaza Strip militia movement Hamas.

One wonders if pictures such as this are evidence of the crime—because it definitely seems to belie the notion of the "poor" Palestinians on the surface, if nothing else:

I'll be rounding up more Egyptian currency-trading goodness beyond the fold as I find it.

Déjà vu, by the way.

What do you think of this ? Shoher is arguably the most right Israeli today, but he argues Israel should talk to Hamas as Egypt will not maintain the blockade of Gaza.
