(KLEIN ONLINE) — Hamas is opening a de facto embassy in Tunisia, sources within the jihad group confirmed to KleinOnline today.

The move follows Islamist victories in the country’s parliamentary elections. It comes months after the Obama administration supported the ouster of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, a U.S. ally who aided in the fight against al-Qaida and Islamic terrorism.
