Taqiyya Exhibit #3,521
Right on cue, after the Obama administration went out of their way to say that Hamas is not like ISIS, a Hamas spokesperson publically distanced Hamas from ISIS, noting they are very different organizations.
Yahoo News reports:
DOHA, Qatar—In an interview with Yahoo News, the political leader of Hamas today vigorously rejected any comparison to ISIL terrorists and pledged that the Palestinian militant group will start giving warnings to Israelis about impending rocket attacks in order to avoid the killing of innocent civilians.
As much of the world expressed revulsion over the beheading of American journalist James Foley by an ISIL executioner, Hamas political chief Khaled Meshaal took pains to distance his organization from the Islamist militant group that has conducted a murderous rampage across a large swath of Syria and Iraq.
"This is an opportunity for me to say we are against the killing of any civilians, any journalists," Meshaal said in the interview. But he then turned the accusation against Israel. "The question is who is killing the civilians," he said, asserting that more than 15 journalists have been killed during the Israeli assault on Gaza.
Wow. You’d almost think the White House and Hamas were coordinating their talking points as State Department spokesperson Marie Harf just this week announced that ISIS and Hamas are very different:
Well, I think by definition they are two different groups. (Smirk/smile kicks in) They (laugh) are, have different leadership, uh, and I’m not going to compare them….obviously they’re quite different in some ways.
In a handful of words that took a matter of moments to utter:
- The United States and Hamas were in alignment (again).
- A terrorist organization was given a platform on a major news outlet to spew their lies and hate (again).
- The United States spoke pure garbage at a moment when we need truth more than ever (again).
- Millions around the world had a false narrative reinforced (again).
And this doesn’t even address Hamas framing Israel (again, of course) as the aggressor. Or the incredibly cynical and manipulative comment about sending warnings to Israelis before firing rockets.
We need a course correction in this country. We needed one years ago. But I’d settle for today, or even tomorrow at this point.
Evil is winning.
Brutes rule the day.
And cowards are everywhere.
