US Senate Majority Leader: Hamas Is Just As Bad As Islamic State


harry-reidSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)¬†condemned Hamas and affirmed U.S. support for Israel, calling the failure to condemn Hamas as one would condemn the Islamic State group “stunning hypocrisy.”

“Hamas and ISIS (also known as Islamic State)¬†are both vicious, corrupt, hateful, evil groups. And both are extreme. Yet, for some reason, Hamas’ brutality doesn’t elicit the same horror from the international community as ISIS. How can that be?” Reid wondered as he addressed the Senate.

Reid said that one of the few differences between Islamic State and Hamas is the latter’s narrow focus on one single objective — the destruction of Israel.

“Consider its actions over the past several months: Hamas raided its own limited supplies for housing and general infrastructure, intended to repair the destruction that occurred during the last conflict they initiated. But Hamas instead used the stolen materials to build tunnels to hide and infiltrate Israel — infiltrating to kill, maim, kidnap and murder the innocent. These depraved agitators launched thousands of rockets into Israel, hoping to inflict death and destruction. Their rockets had no aiming capabilities — they fired indiscriminately, not caring whether they hit a child, a family or anyone,” he said.

  1. Rot for a heart but maybe wisdom for a brain. Thinking that terror is not prescription only is fatherhood for better prayers. Living to see Mr. Reid speak fluently on a real matter is nice. Getting ready however to see him continue to cry for the public ride. Practical but never enough.

  2. Thank you Mr. Reid. As Jews, we are greatly appreciative to our representatives from both sides of the aisle who staunchly defend Israel in a world filled with unfairness and anti-Semitism.

  3. Reid is basically correct. Hamas has been clever enough to attack only Israel, and to brutally murder only Israelis and Palestinian Arabs — which causes some to think that they are somehow more moderate. They aren’t the same organization but they share very similar ideologies.

  4. guess election is coming the Hypocrite finally woke up and does what he knows best blame someone else lets see if you withhold funds intent for Gaza or for that matter intent to UN
