Apparently Hamas has their own spokesman now. Impressive.

www.cnn.com...

If you've watched the interview. Seriously. They take American/Western viewers for morons. Surely there are more of us who can see what he just did.

The question asked: Do you approve of the killings of the three Israeli teens?

The Hamas spokesman, instead of sidestepping the question with a simple lie, clearly indicated by his answer that Hamas does approve of it, and in fact, was probably behind it.

Take a second and breath it in. We live in a world where this sort of stuff actually happens. Where a Muslim fundamentalist tries to convince, from where he is, from where he thinks, that Hamas' cause is decent and justified. They have their own public relations bureau. See? That means they're legitimate, right? This is how crude Hamas' thinking is. They think they can communicate with us, and even sway us, by a simple avoidance in answering a question.

Hopefully, we live in a world where kidnapping three innocent teens, torturing them and killing them isn't an acceptable thing to do. I would hope that most people would feel an innate abhorrence at the thought. To pull away at the possibility that someone would dare do that.

And here we are, listening to the spokesman of a group who probably carried out this act. Whose spokesman couldn't even bring himself to say "we do not approve of it".

Hamas and the Islamists like them are obscene primitive minded boors who deserve nothing more than excoriation and denunciation from the world community.

I don't approve of the killings whether carried out by the Israelis or the Palestinians.

They are equally guilty. It has gone on for decades, and will continue to do so.

No where in that video did he say "hamas" approve of it .

He simply said they could not comment because they don't have all the information surrounding the incident.

So this leaves room for ones innovation or interpretation.
Common MSM tatic.

But way to go ! On trying to put a twist on it ! Like CNN ...

Kudos to you .

*rolls eyes*

There will be NO decency in this war. It will burn for years coming. And both sides will demand that only their causes are just.


They are not and will never be.

Bloodshed justifying more bloodshedding is the worst cause possible.


What about reaching out to the other or presenting the other cheek?

Is the only possible answer really to deepen the trench, to build up more hate by killing people? And by this, I am looking at both sides!

Welcome to real life ....


The most recent, comprehensive national study for the number of missing children estimated in 1999: [1]
Approximately 800,000 children younger than 18 were reported missing.
More than 200,000 children were abducted by family members.
More than 58,000 children were abducted by nonfamily members.
An estimated 115 children were the victims of “stereotypical” kidnapping. These “stereotypical” kidnappings involved someone the child did not know or was an acquaintance. The child was held overnight, transported 50 miles or more, killed, ransomed or held with the intent to keep the child permanently.
To find the number of children missing from a specific state or territory contact the state’s Missing Child Clearinghouses.
The first three hours are the most critical when trying to locate a missing child. The murder of an abducted child is rare, and an estimated 100 cases in which an abducted child is murdered occur in the U.S. each year. A 2006 study indicated that 76.2 percent of abducted children who are killed are dead within three hours of the abduction. [2]
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® has assisted law enforcement in the recovery of more than 196,488 missing children since it was founded in 1984. Our recovery rate for missing children has grown from 62 percent in 1990 to 97 percent today.
The AMBER Alert program was created in 1996 and is operated by the U.S. Department of Justice. As of May 28, 2014, 692 children have been successfully recovered as a result of the program. [3]

If he can not immediately say "we do not agree with the murder of any children" that tells you enough. As far as leaving room for innovation and interpretation you're the expert. He left it open so his little lackeys and thugs could make his excuses for him to the world. Your posts are full of lies and half truths, you in fact are quite a practiced liar, you also ignore and sidestep questions you know you can't answer without revealing your true face. You two are like peas and carrots.

What? Not sure how you came to that conclusion?
Any member is free to check my credibility. I have nothing to hide .
I was simply stating a fact that he did not say what the OP qoted , the OP decided rather that he would fill in the blank and use his own interpretation.
Another problem we have is that CNN did not show us the whole clip did they?
Sorry if I am not quick to jump the GUN on this , can't say the same for you and the OP can we?

But since you seem to believe that I am some "fabricating lire"
I guess you wouldn't believe me if i told you hamas is a terrorist organization.
And I don't subscribe to their twisted ideology, we can chalk them up as a cancer to Islam.

Are we done focusing on me now ?

I am sorry was the OP adressing me ?

Was he asking for my opnion ?

But if you must know my stance , as a father of two children I couldn't imagine anyone kidnapping them , and whoever did that to thoes three teens the deserve to be rightfully punished!

Back on topic now savvy ?

Only problem with slamming Israel is the news articles always read "IN RESPONSE TO" or "IN RETALIATION"

Maybe Hamas stops firing rockets into Israel?

If i have a bb gun and my neighbor has a 50 cal, I'm not going to get in a shooting match with him...

Dancing around questions was all I saw. Man OP, why you lie?

I watched both interviews and he never gave a definitive "yes" or "no" to any question. However good/bad that is.

I agree he danced around the questions , its strange how both media outlets were dead set on getting him to answer that question.
Makes wonder what else is at play here .

I fully understand him not wanting to answer the question because the lack of information .
But would addmiting it was wrong be an admission of guilt ?
I dono .....


But one can't assume that not answering the question is an addmision of guilt..

Your a drama queen. Palestinians are bombed from the skies on a regular basis and I'm pretty sure they have lost 100's of teen's if not 1000's. Though the 3 Israeli teens is a tragedy it's just business as usual in that part of the world. Would you be in uproar if it was 3 Palestinian teens murdered? No, you wouldn't.

Please people, stop arguing and name calling. It's not doing anyone good.

The Hamas spokesperson did indeed sidestep the question asked of him, but i will explain why he may have done that:

1 - Hamas has publicly praised the kidnappings in the past, meaning that the Hamas spokesperson could not provide the answer "no," as the messages of which they will be wanting to project, will become confused and muddled. He could also not answer "yes," for obvious reasons. As a result, he was left to improvise and come up with an excuse: in this case, a lack of information.

www.independent.co.uk... l

2 - The Hamas spokesperson is Palestinian, and as such, does not hold English as his primary language. This could affect the interview in that there may be communication problems.

I personally believe that he didn't answer the question, due to my reasons expressed in point 1. He found himself stuck between a rock and a hard place. He couldn't approve of the kidnappings, and he couldn't disapprove of them either. This is due to the fact that (1) approving them would mean international backlash, and (2) the disapproval of the kidnappings would confuse Hamas' messages. The journalist would have likely followed up on that as well, asking him as to why and how Hamas' public opinion on the matter has changed since their public approval.

Israel are the ones who break the ceasefires and truces. They bring this crap on themselves and then have a sob when Hamas retaliate.

Is that the real representative of Gaza? If so, Gaza will continue to fire rockets at Israel. Then they will say look at what Israel has done. Stop the rocket firing into Israel and you stop the retaliations...seriously

LITERALLY every time this comes up the headlines read Israel RESPONDS TO, or Israel REACTS, or Israel RETALIATES.

Stop firing rockets into Israel and they wont respond...
