Reader comment on item: Debating the Morality of Israel & Hamas in Battle

Submitted by Nevick Radoy (United States), Jul 13, 2014 at 13:37

Well done Mr. Pipes. The hysterical random off-topic ravings of Hafsa Kara-Mustapha, which grew more desperate as she grew ever more flustered, were in stark contrast to the calm and measured tone in which you presented your arguments.

She was pretty much left with nothing but repeated ravings about "mass slaughter", as if these unfortunate civilian casualties were not actually the fault of Hamas. Seriously, if Israel was really as evil as alleged, and was deliberately "slaughtering" the citizens of Gaza- wouldn't the death toll be a little higher? They could pretty much flatten all of Gaza in a few days and kill hundreds of thousands if they wanted to. I was appalled to hear her essentially say that she was supporting/expecting such an outcome for Israel.

Very entertaining and enlightening, don't know how you manage to keep getting on these shows...

Well put. The IDF obviously do much greater damage if it chose to.
