PALESTINE ISN'T SHI'A:

Iran may drop Palestinian cause, Hamas official says (TIMES OF ISRAEL, August 19, 2015)

The nuclear agreement signed between Iran and world powers may have negative effects on the Palestinians, as Tehran may choose to focus its efforts on interests its shares with the US, a senior Hamas official said Wednesday.

In a Twitter post, Moussa Abu Marzouk hinted that in light of the deal, Iran may no longer want to be regarded as a supporter of terror, and will thus drastically decrease its aid to groups such as the Gaza-based Hamas. "After the nuclear deal, Iran will become a major player in all crises in the region," Abu Marzouk offered, and will likely drop the Palestinian cause, "given the relations between Iran and Hamas at this time."

Last month, Abu Marzouk said that while Iran's aid "greatly helped the resistance in Palestine," funds designated to Hamas from Tehran have seen a sharply decline.
