This is a significant event happening just offscreen:
Senior Hamas officials recently asked Egypt and Jordan whether either country would be willing to allow the organization’s headquarters to relocate to its territory.
The queries were made due to Hamas’ assessment that Syria, where both Hamas and Islamic Jihad headquarters are located, may force both organizations to leave in an effort to divert growing international pressure sparked by a United Nations investigation into the murder of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.
Both Egypt and Jordan apparently refused.
Now, why would Hamas want out of Damascus–unless its leadership knows that the city’s days are numbered?
