Contentions

Unconvincing Talking Points

IHT:

A top Hamas leader said Saturday the Gaza war has ended chances of negotiations with Israel and called on Arabs to pressure the Jewish State to end its attacks on Gaza Strip.

Damascus-based Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal made his fiery speech on the Arab news channel Al-Jazeera…”You have finished off the last chance and breath for settlement and negotiations,” he said…

So, before the war, Hamas wanted “negotiations and settlement” with Israel? That’s good for a laugh.

Now, watch how quickly the Juan Cole/Daniel Levy/Juicebox Mafia faction will seize on this comment and say: Do you see how Israeli military action is self-defeating? Look at how it’s radicalized Khaled Mashaal.
