Peacenik Gave Sefer Hazohar to Former Hamas Spokesman
Yeah, you read the headline correctly.
Gershon Baskin, a leftist with ties to Hamas, gave a Zohar to former Hamas spokesman Razi Hamad.
I call it "Razim for Razi".
Apparently (if I'm getting the story correctly), this occurred after Gilad Shalit was kidnapped, and back channels were working on some sort of solution of getting him out. Some rabbis had a connection to Hamas, but Gershon had a stronger connection, so the rabbis wanted him to give the sefer to their spokesman at the time to build a relationship with them and get Gilad out. They attached a page in Arabic explaining what the Zohar is.
Just plain weird.
