According to the IDF caption beneath the above video:
Published on Mar 24, 2014 — Yesterday the Prime Minister of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, gave a feverish speech in front of thousands of supporters at Saraya Square in the Gaza Strip. The message: Palestinians should not and will not stop fighting through terrorist acts against the State of Israel. Haniyeh encourages Palestinians to attack innocent Israelis and he explicitly outlines a new plan to use tunnels on an offensive against Israel. His speech also refers to striking Tel Aviv as thousands of supporters cheer him on.
Never mind that.
Take another look at the crowd and the lime-vested crowd controllers.
Listen again to the voice of the “Great Leader” Ismail Haniyeh.
Attend also the beating of the drum.

Behind the scenes:
“Of course, the developments in the region have accelerated the return of relations between Hamas and Iran,” the source added. “Perhaps the most important [of those developments] is Hamas’ harsh break with Egypt after the coup and the tension between Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The [tension] has helped warm the relationship between Doha and Tehran, and that has cast a shadow over Hamas in a positive way.”
Yes, sir, Iran’s resumed doling out major moolah to Hamas and, ta da, Hamas is back in business!

Last week, Washington Post conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin suggested the State Department’s Wendy Sherman do some institutional soul searching with a few questions foremost:
- Has Iran made a single concrete concession since the interim deal?
- Why, if Iran is still seeking contraband, are additional sanctions not warranted?
- Why is the Iran economy recovering all of the sudden?”

You heard him, but just in case you prefer reading (0:00 –> 0:16):
This is only the first step, but it is a first step that guarantees that while you take the second step, and move towards a comprehensive agreement, Iran’s fundamentals of its program are not able to progress.”
Up top: Palestinian Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh rouses his controlled crowd to a murderous pitch. “Hamas is the canon and we are the ammunition!”
Down below in the blue sport coat and the pink tie, Mr. Kerry on the deal with Iran, which statement his mouth turns out in gobbledygook: ” . . . while you take the second step . . . Iran’s fundamentals of its program are not able to progress.”
The hell you say!
Nice hair, Mr. Kerry.
