According to multiple reports, Hamas leaders who have been living in luxury in five-star hotels in Qatar are reportedly on the run, fleeing Qatar, 

The Jerusalem Post is reporting that several of the leaders fled their locations, "turning off their phones and not accepting calls, KAN's Arabic language channel reported citing sources in Doha on Tuesday evening."


KAN News also reported that Saleh al-Arouri, a senior member of Hamas, left his usual residence in Beirut for Turkey.

According to the Israeli War Room account, the leaders have fled to Algeria because their "safety can no longer be guaranteed" in Qatar.

Algeria probably wouldn't give them the luxury that they had in Doha. 

Given the seeming alacrity of their movements and not announcing where they were going, one has to think that they thought they were going to be taken out. Hence their "security can no longer be guaranteed." 

The leaders have been living there for years while manipulating things in Gaza, so they haven't had to face the consequences of the actions in Gaza. Now it looks like they finally may be facing some heat. That's a great thing that they finally may have to worry a little bit, after all they've done, not only with the attack on Israel but how they've misused and not taken care of their own people in Gaza. 


As we reported, they were in Qatar in luxury and secure because of a deal cut by the Obama/Biden team. 

The U.S. played a direct role in helping set up the Hamas office in Qatar during the Obama administration, seeking appeasement and soft diplomacy but ultimately failing to control the terrorist group as it festered in Gaza.  [....]

Qatar's Ambassador to Washington Meshal bin Hamad Al Thani wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that his government set up the Hamas political office in Doha "after a request from Washington to establish indirect lines of communication" in 2012.

When Barack Obama weighed in on the Israeli-Hamas war, his comment was "Nobody's hands are clean."

“If you want to solve the problem, then you have to take in the whole truth. And you then have to admit nobody’s hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree,” he said, arguing that the entire world bears responsibility for allowing the decades-long conflict to fester.

That's utter nonsense. Perhaps he's trying to excuse himself and Joe Biden for helping Hamas have a haven in Qatar and helping to funnel money to Iran. Yes, he and Biden need to check themselves for how their actions have led to what's happening now.  


But I'm not sure they would be safe anywhere. Adolf Eichmann wasn't safe in Argentina, and his is why the U.S. shouldn’t be caving and should support Israel keeping up the pressure on Hamas.
