Bill Maher doesn’t often agree with his conservative guests, but on a recent episode of his HBO show liberal and conservative came together to agree about the evils of Hamas.
“I feel terrible for a Palestinian child who dies. But if it’s your father, your brother, your uncle who’s firing those rockets into Israel, who’s fault is it really? Do you really expect the Israelis not to retaliate?”
Jamie Weinstein, the Daily Caller:
“I don’t think you can understand the conflict without reading Hamas’ charter, upon which they were founded, which clearly calls — and it’s chilling — calls for not only the destruction of Israel but the murder of Jews generally… They say the day will come when the trees will call out and say ‘here’s a Jew come kill him.’ This is the mentality of the people that Israel is fighting.”
“Charles Krauthammer, who I seldom agree with, wrote the other day that Israel is using a missile defense system to protect its citizens and Hamas is using its citizens to protect it’s missiles.”
Maher’s view on Hamas isn’t a surprise – a few days earlier he made waves with this tweet.
At last! We conservatives can find some common ground with Maher. It may not last long but here’s to even the briefest of alliances.
