This time CNN interviewed the Hamas spokesman in Lebanon. The reporter asked him if Hamas would comply with a truce if one can be arranged. He said that he has heard of no truce and that there is a holocaust in Gaza. For a religion which consistently denies that there ever was a Holocaust, they sure help themselves to the term when some of their own are killed.
I really don’t think that the death of around 400 Gazans, the vast majority of whom are militants, can be described as a holocaust.
As a spokesman this Hamas fellow was abysmally incoherent and refused to answer the questions asked by the CNN reporter.
The desperate reporter tried to get some sense out of him, and asked him if Hamas was prepared to stop firing missiles into Israel. He did not answer but continued raving. Finally she just had to give up.
Perhaps she realised what Israel has always maintained. There really is nobody to talk on the Hamas side.
I look forward to seeing whom CNN will interview next time.
