The Islamic Resistance Movement; Hamas has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela saying he was one of the most important symbols of freedom in the world. A member of Hamas political bureau; Mousa Abu Marzouk said “Mandela was one of the main supporters of the Palestinian cause and his case is very similar to the Palestine question. Mandela spent all of his youth in prison to be freed when his people gained their freedom”.
Abu Marzouk said via his Facebook account “when Mandela read the notorious Oslo agreement; he said I was offered a similar agreement thirty years ago and I refused it. Mandela’s departure is a grave loss for his family; his people, to Palestine and the world’s freedom-loving people”.
Like Mandela, Marzook has quite the rap sheet.
In 2007, a Hamas manifesto – penned by Marzook – was published on the Pastor’s Page of the Trinity United Church of
Christ Hate Speech newsletter; that would be the church of Barack Obama’s pastor, Jeremiah Wright.
Wright has a history of comparing the Palestinians to blacks under apartheid in South Africa.
Obama wrote the foreword to Mandela’s book.
