How deep are the ties between the so-called antiwar group Code Pink and the terrorist group Hamas? Deep enough that Hamas guaranteed Code Pink’s safety when the group led an international delegation of anti-Israel leftists to Gaza in late December for the ‘Gaza Freedom March.’
Code Pink claims to have delivered “tens of thousands of dollars in humanitarian aid” to Hamas-controlled Gaza to protest a blockade of the terrorist enclave by the civilized world.
Before Code Pink departed for Egypt where the march was based, co-founder Medea Benjamin told the Western Massachusetts publication The Reminder that Hamas “has pledged to ensure our safety.”
Hamas organized the ‘Freedom March’ in Gaza for Code Pink and provided security. The terrorist group protected the marchers during their two-day stay in Gaza by establishing tight control over their movements and contacts in Gaza and by forcing them to stay in a Hamas-owned hotel that one marcher described as “the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The 5 star Commodore hotel in Gaza city with a view of the Mediterranean Sea.”
Hamas ‘Prime Minister’ Ismail Haniyeh addressed the marchers in Gaza by cell phone, while other Hamas officials spoke in person.
