Iran to Hamas: pay homage and support to Syria or no money for your jihadists

It appears Iran is a little peaved at Hamas, and that is a good thing.  Iran is threatening to cut Hamas funding if they do not publically support Syria and President Assad.

Jihad makes strange bedfellows.

Diplomats: Iran cuts back on Hamas funding due to Syria unrest

Iran has cut back or even stopped its funding of Hamas after the Islamist movement, which rules the Gaza Strip, failed to show public support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, diplomats said on Sunday.

One diplomat, who asked not to be identified, said intelligence reports showed that Iran had reduced funding for Hamas. Other diplomatic sources, also relying on intelligence assessments, said the payments had stopped over the past two months.
