The Jerusalem Post reported:

Iran has promised Hamas new rockets and more funds, an expression of the Islamic Republic’s displeasure with recent news of renewed Israeli-Syrian peace talks, the London-based newspaper, Asharq Alawsat reported on Sunday…

An Iranian source told the paper that in light of Mashaal’s fears, Iranian regime officials promised the head of Hamas’s political bureau that Iran would continue supporting Hamas financially, materially and morally, even if Syria would turn its back on the organization for the sake of an agreement with Israel.

According to the source, the Iranians had even elaborated what that support would be: Newer, upgraded rockets and an increase in the budget allotted to Hamas to $150 million in the second half of 2008.

It’s thug week in Tehran…

Of course, Barack Obama blames Bush’s threats of a military strike on Iran for its support for Hamas and Hezbollah.

UPDATE: Naharnet is reporting that Iran also gave Hamas a telecommunications network similar to the one they gave Hezbollah.
