I’m really skeptical of the figures you give for the net worth of Hamas’s leadership. Your source is a Jewish-American newspaper quoting one Israeli academic who cites only «Arab sources» and «global estimates». Moreover, the guy was the former military governor of several West Bank districts during the Palestinian Intifada. I can think of a few sources I’d trust less to give an unbiased report on this topic, but not many.
I don’t mean to argue that Hamas’s leaders aren’t rich, or that they haven’t embezzled any of the aid money directed at Palestine. (The money has clearly gone somewhere other than to the people living there.) But those billion-dollar figures are inflammatory enough to need much more credible support than that article provides.
