Apartheid Israel Targets Hamas with Fake Zarqawi Psy-Op

Given their oft-stated opposition to Zarqawi the EVIL alCIAda GOBLIN, we were surprised to read that Hamas made a statement mourning his death.

But, it turns out, the alleged Hamas statement was a fake - a plant sent anonymously to Reuters, who also ran a retraction of the claim.
Hamas on Friday denied issuing a statement mourning the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Al-Qaida's leader in Iraq, but hailed him as a symbol of resistance to occupation.

Reuters received a statement Thursday saying that Hamas mourned Zarqawi, killed in a strike north of Baghdad by U.S. warplanes on Wednesday.

Sami Abu-Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said Friday that "Hamas did not issue any statement in this regard."

He also said that Hamas "reiterates its supportive position to all liberation movements and foremost the Iraqi liberation movement, for which Zarqawi was one of the symbols in the face of the American occupation."

Hamas, an Islamic militant group, took over the Palestinian government in March after winning elections.

Hamas has in the past distanced itself from violence blamed on Al-Qaida, though it has used similar suicide tactics during the intifada.
Just like the silly allegations that Hamas bears responsibility for the rocket attacks on the European Settler Colony, this effort to demonize them smacks of Apartheid Israel's Spooks.
