Hamas Chief Meshaal Congratulates Muslim Brotherhood's Morsi On Huge Islamist Win In Egypt

January 25, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On Saturday, Mohamed Morsi, Muslim Brotherhood kingpin and chair of its inappropriately named "Freedom and Justice Party," accepted congratulations from Hamas' terrorist in chief, Khaled Meshaal on the party's overwhelming victory in Egypt's questionably run parliamentary elections.

Marzook also provided the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), with $210,000 in initial funding; and channeled $250,000 in investment capital to Infocom, a Texas-computer business run by relatives of Marzook's wife..."
