Security officials say the deal between Hamas and North Korea is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars and is being handled by a Lebanese-based trading company with close ties to the militant Palestinian organisation based in east Beirut.

The Israelis should intercept the missile shipment and then cheerfully return them to the Norks in the same courtesy that they are being delivered to Israel.
gotta luv the hats
ALL of that $47 Million will go to arms!!
Money is fungible, so they can eat or raise terror, they’ve chosen terror.
Didn’t congress have to approve the $47 million sent to Hamas? Or did Obama use “his pen” and his checkbook to help the enemy once again?
