Gotcha

The IDF’s attack came as such a surprise that Hamas had a hard time mustering Western journalists and doctors to Gaza who would be willing to lie on its behalf. One who did get there in time for the war was Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian doctor who made multiple media appearances throughout the war, decrying Israel’s “all-out war against Palestinian civilians” and its “deliberate attacks” against women and children.

But now it turns out that this “neutral observer” is in fact a member of the socialist Red party in Norway who came out in support of the terror attacks of 9/11. As he told the Dagbladet newspaper (via YNet):

The attack on New York did not come as a surprise with the politics the West has followed the last decades. I am upset by the terrorist attack, but I am at least as upset over the suffering that the US has caused. It is in this context that 5000 dead has to be seen…

When asked if he supported a terrorist attack against the US he answered:

Terror is a poor weapon, but my answer is yes, within the context I have mentioned.

Add another item to Hamas’s list of faults: A poor vetting process for its “neutral” observers.
