Hamas terror chief leads Palestinian talks in Cairo

Arouri, who comes from the West Bank, where he commanded several Palestinian terrorist murders and kidnappings, has based himself in Beirut away from Israel’s security arm. Last week, Arouri was promoted to deputy head of the Hamas political bureau. Egypt, by allowing a West Bank Palestinian to take a seat at the Cairo session, connived with him to circumvent Israel’s directive.
