Al-Jazeera spies for Hamas...
Al Jazeera Journalist Admits To Being Hamas Operative
09/27/2011 : During Shin Bet interrogation, former Afghanistan bureau chief Samer Allawi says he traveled to Syria to help terror group.
Al Jazeera's bureau chief in Afghanistan, Samer Allawi, was released from an Israeli prison Sunday night after reaching a plea bargain under which he confessed to serving as a Hamas operative. Allawi reached a deal with the Israel State Prosecutor’s Office under which he will receive a suspended sentence of three years, after he confessed to serving as a Hamas operative and working on behalf of the terrorist organization, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) released in a statement.

Allawi, a Palestinian, was arrested in August at the Allenby Bridge border crossing between the West Bank and Jordan. He said he was recruited into Hamas in 1993 and served until 2004 on a senior committee that oversees Hamas operations abroad and is responsible for fundraising. In 2001 and 2003 Allawi traveled to Syria where he met with Mousa Abu Marzook, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal’s deputy and reported on his activities, the Shin Bet said. Abu Marzook offered Allawi to serve as Hamas’s official representative in Iran, but he rejected the offer.

The Shin Bet said that Allawi met with a senior Hamas operative in Dubai in 2000 and expressed his readiness to participate in military operations if asked by Hamas. He also offered to use his job as a reporter for Al Jazeera to promote Hamas interests. In 2006, Allawi traveled to Qatar and met with additional Al Jazeera reporters, who the Shin Bet said were also Hamas operatives and discussed the possibility of using their positions to advance Hamas by criticizing the US military in Afghanistan.

During his interrogation, the Shin Bet said he also discussed his activities as a member of the mujahideen in Afghanistan from 1988 to 1992, during which he confessed to participating in a rebel raid on an Afghan military base as well as guerrilla operations against Soviet forces. Allawi rejected the charges against him. “There was no evidence against me," Allawi told Reuters upon returning to the West Bank. "The whole arrest episode was a charade aimed at extorting Al Jazeera. I was not the target." He met with Hamas, Allawi said, because "I meet people everywhere from whom I can get the news."

Egypt uncovers Libyan SA-24 anti-air missiles and sea mines bound for Gaza
September 26, 2011, Helped by highly sophisticated contraband weapons smuggled out of Libya, Iran and Hizballah are getting the Palestinian Hamas equipped for another round of hostilities with Israel.
debkafile's military sources report that Sunday, Sept. 25, Egyptian security forces, acting on information from a Western intelligence source, homed in near Ismailia on a large half-empty buried cache of advanced SA-24 anti-air infrared missiles (a version of the US Stinger) stored there en route from Libya to Gaza. The information came too late to block delivery; most of the crates were found empty of their contents of missiles and other military equipment which must already be on their way to Sinai or Gaza. Some of the empty containers were found to have contained Russian-made MDM-3 sea mines, of the type Muammar Qaddafi scattered around Libyan ports in May to keep NATO vessels at bay.

Our North African sources report that many of Qaddafi's weapons stores were seized by the rebels and their contents sold by some of the officers to the highest bidders. Tripoli today is under the sway of several rival militias belonging to the rebel National Transitional Council. An oversight committee of American, British, French and Italian delegates is trying to track down the advanced weaponry which the rebels seized during the NATO-led advance into the capital on Aug. 21. They have been questioning the Libyan rebel officers placed in charge of the arms stores and Libyan weapons dealers for information.

The CIA agents on the committee are aware that Hizballah and Hamas purchasing missions armed with Iranian petrodollars established a presence some months ago in Benghazi, seat of the NTC which has not yet moved to Tripoli. Those agents elude discovery in the mayhem prevailing in rebel ranks and may be hiding in one of the rebel commands operating outside Benghazi. But the NATO commission has managed to find out roughly what happens to the smuggled arms after they are spirited out of Tripoli, debkafile's counter-terror sources report. Some are bound for southern Libya and Niger, where Qaddafi loyalists holed up in the Sahel desert on the fringes of the Sahara take delivery: The second destination is Algeria for Al Qaeda in the Maghreb; and the third is the Gaza Strip through Egypt and Sinai.
