Muslim Brotherhood 'Gave 5 Million Dollars to Hamas'


An Egyptian newspaper revealed documents Saturday which allege a financial and military connection between Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Ibrahim Matar, the representative of the "Tatir" (lit. purification) movement, presented a copy of the documents, which he claims are authentic.

The documents allege the involvement of senior Muslim Brotherhood official Khairat el-Shater in terrorist acts committed in the Sinai Peninsula against Egyptian security forces. Those attacks not only were carried out in connection with Al-Qaeda, but were also assisted by Hamas's military wing, Matar alleges.
