Palestinian Cabinet minister Atef Adwan and a controversial Austrian rabbi pledged Friday to work to build ties between Hamas and anti-Zionist Jews.

Adwan, Hamas’ refugee minister, and orthodox rabbi Moishe Arye Friedman told The Associated Press their meeting in the Swedish capital heralded a “joint coalition” between their groups.

Adwan also said the two hoped their meeting would lead to plans for humanitarian aid to flow from Friedman’s congregation in Vienna to the West Bank.

Friedman flew to Stockholm from Vienna on Thursday to meet Adwan, who has been on a weeklong visit to Sweden, attending a conference on Palestinian refugees and meeting Swedish lawmakers.

Friedman said his congregation would “do everything in practical terms to help the Palestinian people,” including sending money and “We will support them in ways that others have failed to do,” Friedman said, but declined to give details. Friedman is chief rabbi for hundreds of anti-Zionist orthodox Jews in .
