WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A Jewish based group is expressing outrage over comments made by Nancy Pelosi concerning Hamas. In a CNN interview Pelosi said: "We have to confer with the Qataris who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization."

Hamas has been labeled a terrorist organization by The State Department since 1997.

Matt Brooks with the Republican Jewish Coalition says Pelosi's initial remarks feed into what he sees as part of a misinformation campaign, and says he found the remarks "shocking".
