Christiane Amanpour

When someone says it takes a lot of effort to spin Israel as the perpetual victim in whatever atrocity  they commit, they could easily be talking about this recent pathetic display by sycophantic CNN policy pitch-person Christiane Amanpour.

This over-paid hack hag starts the hit-piece interview with Khaled Mashal with a voice over claiming he represents a pariah (Hamas) “considered by Israel and the U.S. and much of the West to be a terrorist organization”

Of course Israel and the U.S. consider Hamas to be a terrorist organization. Both Israel and the U.S. considered the African National Congress to be a terrorist organization while the ANC were resisting the racist Apartheid regime in South Africa. Bishop Desmond Tutu was only recently removed from the terrorist watch list here in the United States. The bishop was the terrorist and the apartheid regime were our loyal partners and business buddies. Not hard to figure out what the criteria for being on the “terrorist” side is.

Another humorous aspect of this segment of pure propaganda from Amanpour is the laughable cliche that Hamas won’t accept Israel’s right to exist.

Fact is, Hamas has already announced and made quite clear their position that if Israel returns to the Green Line borders, recognized by much of the world as the official borders between Israel and Palestine, they would recognize their right to exist.

But in fact, it is Israel who is to this very day, doing EVERYTHING in their power in the United Nations to continue to block a Palestinian effort to become an official observer state at the U.N….
