Gazan Academic And Journalist Hussam Al-Dajany: People Can Now Donate To Hamas Using Bitcoin Without Fear Of Getting Caught

February 6, 2019

Palestinian Journalist Hussam Al-Dajany, who also lectures at Gaza Open University, said in a January 30, 2019 interview on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas/Gaza) that Hamas is accepting Bitcoin donations. He said that Bitcoin is an opportunity to unite people who are afraid to or cannot openly support the Palestinian resistance because it is safe and reliable, and it cannot be tracked by security agencies. He explained that money is what the resistance needs the most and that it is costs millions of dollars to pay salaries, manufacture rockets, smuggle weapons, dig tunnels, and build drones. He added that despite Iran's open support of the Palestinian resistance, the sanctions imposed on it may prevent enough money from getting to Hamas, so Bitcoin is being resorted to as an indirect way for people to "participate in the liberation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
