Speaking to journalist Jorge Ramos yesterday, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested that Hamas operates in civilian populated areas in Gaza because it’s “pretty small.” “The problem is, and this is something, I’m not a military planner but Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets in civilian areas, part of it is that Gaza’s pretty small and it’s very densely populated.
Katie Pavlich of Town Hall points out the obvious:
Hamas doesn’t operate in civilian areas because it’s a “pretty small” place, not even “in part.” Hamas intentionally and deliberately operates in civilians populations, including in schools and mosques, in order to get innocent Palestinians killed so they can use dead bodies as propaganda against Israel. Hamas purposefully uses human beings as shields. Period. Hamas doesn’t operate inside civilian areas “in part,” that’s where their entire operation and propaganda campaign is based.
We keep hearing how smart Obama and his former and current Secretaries of State are. Just for the sake of argument, let’s grant that; in which case, the administration’s decision to ignore Israel, Egypt and the Palestinian Authority and negotiate instead with Hamas, whose charter calls for the complete destruction of Israel and Jews, and Turkey and Qatar, both enemies of Israel and, in Qatar’s case, one of the largest funders of terrorists world-wide, suggests that Obama and his crowd are doing so deliberately. They aren’t naive or innocent, as persons of good will might consider them, but implacable foes of Israel.
Yet both Hillary and Obama will continue to receive huge donations from super-rich Jews in Hollywood and New York.
