While Nancy Pelosi calls Hamas a “humanitarian organization,” Egyptian media applaud Israel for its war on Hamas

We are living in “Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass” strange times.

The present renewed war between Israel and Hamas-ruled Gaza is making some strange bedfellows on the two sides.

On one side are the anti-Israel Hamas sympathizers who include the usual low-information denizens of Hollywood, U.S. college students, and Democrats.

An example of the latter is none other than a former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and the present House Minority Leader, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

As reported by Matthew Burke for TPNN, on July 27, 2014, notwithstanding the fact the U.S. government gave Hamas the designation as a “foreign terrorist organization” in 1997 during the Clinton administration, Pelosi told Candy Crowley on CNN’s State of the Union that the United States should regard Hamas as a “humanitarian organization.”

Pelosi also said she supports a “two state solution,” an outcome that Hamas has continually rejected. Hamas’ mission statement pointedly calls for the annihilation of all Jews and the nation of Israel. Specifically, Article 7 of Hamas’ Charter says: “The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees.”

More interesting still is the fact that fellow Muslims and Arabic states in the Middle East are not supporting Hamas.

As an example, Mahmoud Abbas, the sometimes moderate, often ineffectual leader of the Palestinian Authority, asked his rivals in Hamas a question that other bewildered people are also asking: “What are you trying to achieve by sending rockets?” (Go here for the answer to that question.)

Egypt, too, is not on Hamas’ side. More than that, Egyptian media are applauding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel’s offensive against Hamas in Gaza!

France 24 reports:

Since the beginning of Israel’s offensive in Gaza, much of the Egyptian media has laid the blame squarely on the Islamist group Hamas, which controls the tiny Palestinian enclave.

Some journalists have even said that all Palestinians are to blame for their current plight.

Israel’s escalating attack on the Gaza Strip has triggered worldwide debate. Egypt is no exception.

But there is little of the traditional Arab solidarity towards Palestinians to be found in the Egyptian media.

Adel Nehaman, a columnist for the Egyptian daily El-Watan, said bluntly: “Sorry Gazans, I cannot support you until you rid yourselves of Hamas.”

Azza Sami, a writer for government daily Al-Ahram, went so far as to congratulate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Twitter: “Thank you Netanyahu, and God give us more men like you to destroy Hamas!”

Star presenter of the Al-Faraeen TV channel, Tawfik Okasha, an ardent supporter of Egypt’s military regime and known for his firm stance against the ousted Muslim Brotherhood, attacked the entire Palestinian population live on air.

“Gazans are not men,” he declared. “If they were men they would revolt against Hamas.”

  1. Pelosi is an idiot. If Hamas is so humanitarian, why doesn’t she get her butt over there and prove it?

  4. Their is a clear and dangerous presence of certain sub humans who actually believe themselves. Pelosi is a dangerous sub human who devalues higher education and the dubious integrity of politics.

  6. Thank you StMA for this interesting post. Nancy Pelosi is the “near occasion of sin for me” because I cannot stand her. What she has said about Hamas illustrates, “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.” (Alexander Pope)

  7. Joandarc, WELCOME BACK! I have missed you! That said, and I am not disagreeing with you, but there is the possibility that the Representative of the great state of California knows more about Hamas than she lets on, and that she either suspends her moral outrage (doesn’t have any), regarding Hamas for political or financial reasons.
