Hamas Pays Palestinians to Harass Jews at Temple Mount in Jerusalem – Gavriel Fiske
(dailyalert.org, May 30, 2014)

Israel arrested Mahmoud Toameh, a “top-ranking overseas operative of Hamas,” on May 14 as he attempted to infiltrate from Jordan via the Allenby Bridge, the Israel Security Agency revealed Thursday. During his interrogation, Toameh revealed that Hamas pays hundreds of young Israeli Arabs to harass Jews seeking to enter the Temple Mount area. Hamas works with the Islamic Movement in Israel, paying a monthly salary of NIS 4,000 to NIS 5000 ($1,150-$1,440) to young men to harass and throw stones at Jewish visitors.

Hamas maintains close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, Toameh said, and noted that eight members of Hamas’ guiding Shura Council were members of the Brotherhood’s international arm. He said that Turkey and Qatar are major centers of Hamas activity abroad, operating with the tacit approval of those governments. (Times of Israel)
