An elderly Palestinian woman accused terrorist group Hamas for stealing all of the aid meant for Gaza in an interview with Al-Jazeera, appearing to catch the reporter off guard.
The Al-Jazeera reporter put forward that aid is not entering Gaza, but the woman argued that was false and that Hamas steals everything that enters, according to subtitle translations of the interview posted by the Middle East Media Research Institute on Thursday. President Joe Biden announced in October that the United States would give $100 million in aid to the West Bank and Gaza days after Hamas took humanitarian supplies intended for Palestinian refugees, according to the Times of Israel.

“The situation is difficult,” the reporter stated. “No aid is coming in.”
“All the aid goes to [the tunnels] underground,” the elderly woman responded. “It does not reach all the people … Hamas takes everything to their homes. They can take me, shoot me, or do whatever they want to me.”
The reporter then asserted that the circumstances seemed uncertain and appeared to suddenly terminate the interview.
“Let me be clear, if Hamas diverts or steals the assistance, they will have demonstrated once again that they have no concern for the welfare of the Palestinian people, and it will end,” Biden stated in October. “As a practical matter, it will stop the international community from being able to provide this aid.”
“USAID has identified this area as high-risk for potential diversion and misuse of U.S.-funded assistance,” the USAID Office of the Inspector General (OIG) stated.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.
For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.
Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America's closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young "woke" LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn't think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?
It turns out there's one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.
All of this and much more is completely exposed in November's issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship's Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.
