Anti-Israel CNN Commentator Complains About Israel’s Iron Dome Defense System

31

cnn-commentator-marc-lamont-hillCNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill this week complained that it is not fair that Israel’s “Iron Dome” defense system removes the terrorist organization, Hamas’s ability to strike at Israel and feels the ‘Iron Dome’ should be unfunded and eliminated to allow equal military leverage between Israel and Hamas.

On CNN’s Newsroom interview, Hill complained that the Hamas terrorists have a disadvantage and he was asked by Carol Costello of CNN, “Why complain about civilian casualties if the United States is handing Israel the money to launch the air strikes after the fact?”

Hill responded by saying, “That’s a great question. That’s a question that many of us have been asking for many, many years. I’m pleased to see the United States finally joining the international community in condemning Israel for this reckless assault on innocent lives, but it is hard to condemn Israel when you fund them with so much of the money and so many of the weapons. Now the United States would reasonably say that the Iron Dome funding was necessary on Friday, $225 million, because they want Israel to the defend itself from rocket fire. You have to have some sort of caveat, some sort of demand, some sort of imposition of peace. You can’t simply say we are going to keep funding an Iron Dome when there is such a disproportionate attack on the people of Gaza.”

“It allows Israel to essentially assault and siege Gaza without any retribution or response on the other side. So again, to some extent, they are not just funding defense, they are funding an offensive war and ultimately an occupation. That for me is the problem.”

For several years, Hamas has attacked Israel with rockets hitting various areas of Israel and several countries who are not friendly to Israel have complained that Israel is the aggressor when Hamas, who has been designated as a terrorist organization, has been the one attacking Israel relentlessly.

On Wednesday, a senior Hamas official stated that they would continue to attack Israel if the Palestinian demands are not met.

The Jerusalem Post reported that Osama Hamdan, a senior Hamas official, said that the Palestinian delegation to the Cairo discussions, which also consisted of representatives of Fatah and other Palestinian factions, claimed that the US was exerting pressure on the Palestinians to agree to the extension of the cease-fire “in order to save Israel’s reputation.”

While CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill complains about Israel’s Iron Dome defense system, Joe Newby of Conservative Firing Line reported on Wednesday that a Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri admitting to using human shields during an interview on Al-Aqsa TV.

Concerning the use of civilians as shields, Zuhri said, “People were on the roof of a particular house in order to prevent the Zionist occupation’s warplanes from targeting it. This attests to the character of our noble Jihad-fighting people, who defend their rights with their bare chests and their blood,” he added when asked to comment on the tactic of using human shields.”

Meanwhile, The New American reported on Monday that after the United Nations was caught in July 2014 giving rockets found at UN “schools” in Gaza to the terrorist group Hamas, the UN’s top “human rights” bureaucrat seeks to prosecute Israel officials and the IDF of war crimes in a U.N. court.

  1. How about asking Hamas to use the billions they get in foreign aid to build their own solutions, such as bunkers etc., to protect their civilians? Wouldn’t this be a more sensible way of correcting the ‘balance of protection’? Or better yet, order them not to dare use any international ‘humanitarian’ aid for terror arsenal and the whole problem goes away altogether.

  2. ARE THE READERS SUPPOSED TO RESPOND TO THIS IGNORAMUS?

    YES? OK THEN I WILL.
    IF YOU EVER HEARD HIM ON FOX NEWS YOU WILL REALIZE THAT….
    HE IS AN IGNORAMUS.
    NOT SMART AT ALL,LACKS REASONING AND LOGIC
    HATES EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE BUT HIS OWN…

    I WONDER WHY FOX GAVE HIM THE JOB OF GUEST COMMENTATOR..
    HE DOESNT HAVE VIEWS,
    HE HAS HATE..

  3. Another leftist tactic from their playbook: Equality.

    This leftist Hamas-lover form CNN is such a lowlife, he does not merit comment.

  4. please remove the ugly face off your article of yet another backward Jew-hating anti semetic anti Israel journalist.
    I can’t say Israel is right benoigea bochrim going to the army, but c’mon the iron dome is there to SAVE LIVES!!!(UNLIKE our distant palestinian cousins who sanctify death who wouldn’t mind killing every Jew,there own peolpe & yes also Marc Lamont Hill

  5. Affirmative Action at its best. I hardly, if at all use Anti Semite card , but the guy is full of hatred towards Jews. Period. Tell him to move to Gaza.

  6. I think his bigger complaint is that Israel has the unfair advantage. It’s not the Iron Dome which is on our side. We have Hashem on our side! May we continue to be zoche! I think they are jealous of our hashgacha pratis but they don’t have words to express their true sentiments!
    keep up the mitzvohs so we can continue!

  7. Equal leverage? You kidden me? Wow, that sure makes sense. I guess every war is tit for tat. You kill one, I kill one, You kill ten, I kill ten. Interesting. Wonder which journalism college he attented. Me thinks, the college of the Angry hateful heart.

  8. I guess when America went to war, it measured exactly how it’s enemy was faring. I think we need this guy in the state dept…or maybe he should make aliya, we can use him in the Army, defense dept or somewhere where brilliant minds are lacking.

  9. Trouble is that many in this dumb downed world don’t know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil, etc., etc. Moral equivalence about everything. There’s no difference to them between the good guy and the real bad guy; they are missing a moral compass.

  10. That’s why I don’t watch cnn watch Fox News with Sean hannity. Cnn is
    One sided all you hear how many women and children are being killed never
    Mentioning or showing how they using them as human shields so the body count can go up. Those reporters stationed in gaza I am sure see the truth and look the other way or afraid to report the evil of chamas

  11. Perhaps this shoyta also thinks it’s unfair for police officers and soldiers to wear bullet proof vests and body armour. Why stop there? Why not make umpires give up their chest protectors too? Maybe he thinks all football players should be the same weight (after all, big fat zlubs blitzing a skinny little quarterback isn’t exactly fair) or basketball players should be the same height (seven footers have a distinct advantage over six footers). Geez, what an idiot!

  12. I wonder why the USA didn’t share the secrets of the atom bomb with Germany and Japan. It was terrible that USA had that advantage over the enemy. And look at that poor bombed out city of Dresden. How did the USA dare to perpretrate such cruelty and kill so many “innocents”!?! (And bring an end To the war)

  13. Ha!
    I knew it was coming..

    The question was who is the stupid guy who would say that? Its him!

    Mr. U know why ISRAEL HAS THIS SYSTEM??? IT PROTECTS T5HEIUR CIVILIANS.

    U KNOW WHY GAZA DOESN NOT HAVE IT??? IT KILLS ITS PEOIPLE.

    WHY ARGUE WHEN ISRAEL IS SAVING THOUSANDS(MILLIONS) OF LIVES?

    UR AN ABNORMAL EMPTY HEADED THUG WITH NO COMMON SENSE.

    TALKING AGAINT THE IRON DOME IS 1 THING (STILL NOT ALLOWED)

    STICKING UP FOR A TERRORIST ORG??? ARE YOU SANE?

  14. “The man is sick. Why quote him?”
    Because CNN is so widely watched. They don’t show Fox in airports, IYKWIM. So someone with such shoddy thinking shouldn’t be hired.

  15. Complaining that we have a defense system?? Sure, we should just drop dead from all the rockets and then it would be fair. He’s an absolute moron and a pretty hateful one at that. There’s no logic here just more of the same…hate for the Jews.

  16. “Another leftist tactic from their playbook: Equality.

    This leftist Hamas-lover form CNN is such a lowlife, he does not merit comment.”

    Leftist???? Are you NUTS!!!!!!!!!

    Real leftists object to oppression of women, persecution of gays, and violent imposition of totalitarian theocracies. All of which Hamas is guilty of.

    If you see someone claiming to be a leftist who is supporting Hamas, the person isn’t a leftist, just an old fashioned anti-Semite.

  17. Indeed a person of very limited intellect – were it not for Iron Dome, Israel would have had to level half of Gaza, and send to heaven many more thousands of the people this moron is in love with.
