Top EU diplomat accuses Israel of ‘creating’ and ‘financing’ Hamas – Times of India

The EU‘s top diplomat Josep Borrell late Friday accused Israel of having “created” and “financed” the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which launched unprecedented attacks on Israel on October 7.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has in recent days reaffirmed his opposition to the creation of a Palestinian state. “We believe that a two-state solution must be imposed from outside to bring peace. Although, I insist, Israel is reaffirming its refusal (of this solution), and to prevent it they have gone so far as to create Hamas themselves,” Borrell said.
“Hamas has been financed by the Israeli government to try to weaken the Palestinian Authority of Fatah. But if we do not intervene strongly, the spiral of hate and violence will continue from generation to generation, from funeral to funeral,” he added during a speech in Spanish at the University of Valladolid.
Hamas was created in Dec 1987 shortly after the start of the first Palestinian intifada, or uprising, in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories. Hamas, the Arabic acronym for the Islamic Resistance Movement, was founded to counter the Islamic Jihad group and compete with the mainly secular Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) then led by Yasser Arafat.
