Friends of Hamas

Friends of Hamas is an obviously terrorist-friendly association which, according to conservative news sources,[1] may have paid speakers fees to Chuck Hagel (an Obama nominee for US Secretary of Defense). The story was initially broken on 7 February 2013 by Breitbart[2] and was subsequently broadcast on 11 February 2013 by Lou Dobbs on his Fox News Business program.[3] The news item even made its way into some international media such as the Israeli National News.[4]

This is a serious and potentially damning allegation, and which may have merited serious investigation... if the Friends of Hamas had been something other than a throwaway joke made up by a snarky journalist.[5]
