Monday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, an Israeli mother of two children kidnapped by Hamas blasted propagandist Andrea Mitchell for suggesting there is “symmetry” between the group’s terrorist atrocities and Israel’s military response.
The anonymous mother, whose 12- and 16-year-old boys were taken into Gaza, shared her harrowing story about hearing her children on the phone being kidnapped by Hamas as it occurred.
Then Mitchell had the gall to ask the mother’s feelings on “the attacks against Gaza right now,” alluding to civilian casualties in the Hamas-controlled territory.
“You’re looking for a symmetrical situation and I must say it isn’t,” the mother replied. “If you were dealing with a war who is between two countries, countries don’t take children hostages. I’m sorry. It’s against the laws of war. It’s against humanity. It’s against anything that we all believe in.”
“Every time we have missiles shot at us, I used to say to my children that they should be sympathetic towards the children of Gaza because they suffer a lot more than they do. I’m not sure I still believe it now,” the mother said. “And I must say the only worry I have now from the bombings in Gaza is the fact that my children are there. And I can’t be sympathetic anymore. I can’t be sympathetic to animal human beings- well, they’re not really human beings, who came into my house, broke everything, stole everything, took my children from their bedrooms and took them to the Gaza Strip. Israel’s never done that and it will never do [it]. So there is no symmetry. I’m sorry.”
The only apology here should be coming from the disgusting terror supporters at MSNBC.
