Switzerland Allies With Hamas Against Israel

by JASmius

So much for Swiss "neutrality":

Switzerland has put together a plan to reconstruct the Gaza Strip which includes paying the salaries of Hamas operatives, according to Palestinian officials interviewed by Israel’s NRG website. The plan would also reestablish the status of the Hamas terrorist organization as the only authority in the Gaza Strip.

In recent months, according to the report, Hamas has been faced with the danger of collapsing in Gaza, and turned to Swiss officials for help. Its relations with Egypt are at their worst ever, and funds intended to rehabilitate the coastal enclave after Israel’s Operation Protective Edge last summer have run out. Thousands of Hamas officials have not received their salaries for months, leading to weakening of Hamas’ legitimacy in Gaza, and raising the specter of protests against Hamas’ rule.

So the Israelis had their genocidal domestic enemy right where they wanted them, and now the Swiss are bailing them out and restoring them to the capability of resuming their daily slaughter of Jewish civilians.  How nice.

Switzerland’s relations with Hamas have been warming for a number of years. In 2009, the Swiss government initiated an Israeli-Palestinian conference, which was attended by former Israeli parliamentarian Yossi Beilin and members of Hamas, in order to discuss the possibility of renewing the peace process.

Wouldn't the cessation of daily rocket and missile attacks on Israeli population centers kinda be a, you know, prerequisite for any "peace process" worthy of the name?

That same year, Switzerland hosted a Hamas delegation lead by co-founder Mahmoud Al-Zahar on its own territory. Micheline Calmy-Rey, the Swiss Foreign Minister at the time, explained her country’s decision, saying “Hamas is an important player in the Middle East conflict, and cannot be ignored.”

Oh, the Israelis aren't ignoring it, Minister Rey.  That's why Prime Minister Netanyahu has ruled out a "two-state solution" as being the invitation to the end of Israel that everybody non-anti-Semite knows it is....

...It's just a despicable shame that you don't recognize the meaning of your own words.

Exit question: Does this mean that Swiss Miss Cocoa is canceling their kosher version, or are they introducing a "human blood & entrail" flavor?
