Trump debate guest Malik Obama might support Hamas and the abolition of Israel


Donald Trump's latest guest to the presidential debate is one that many might not expect: Malik Obama, President Barack Obama's half-brother. The invitation is clearly a move to unsettle the president, a firm supporter of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. 

However, the move may backfire on the Donald. It turns out that in 2014, the Israeli press photographed Malik Obama wearing a red and white keffiyah displaying slogans often used in support of the terrorist organization Hamas. 

The scarf reportedly reads, "Jerusalem is ours, we are coming," and "From the river to the sea."

Both are popular slogans used by members of the terrorist group. The second sentence is a reference to the fact that the Palestinian state should include all the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea (or all of modern-day Israel).

Hamas is a militant Islamic fundamentalist organization operating in the West Bank and Gaza in Israel. 

The group supports the complete destruction of the state of Israel and the creation of a fundamentalist Palestinian state in the region.
