WikiLeaks: Assad called Hamas 'uninvited guest'
Leaked document reveals Syrian President Bashar Assad called Hamas an "uninvited guest" during a meeting with American senators. The Syrian president noted that the organization's origin comes from the Muslim Brotherhood movement that Damascus fought against during the 80s.

 

Assad added " "If you want me to be effective and active, I have to have a

relationship with all parties. Hamas is Muslim Brotherhood, but we have to deal with the reality of their presence." According to the document, Assad also claimed that if there is peace in the Middle East, Hamas and Hezbollah would disappear. (Roee Nahmias)
