Former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer called out the global media – including in the United States – for continuing to claim there is any similarity between the actions taken by both Israel and Hamas, the fundamentalist group in control of the Palestinians.
On “Life, Liberty & Levin,” host Mark Levin called the coverage of the missile attacks against Israel and the response from Jerusalem is “par for the course” in today’s media.
“They treat Hamas and Islamic Jihad, these terrorist groups, on an equivalency with Israel. Israel’s trying to hit… military targets in very dense areas. And the terrorists are obviously aiming heavily at [Israeli] population centers,” he said, asking Dermer his thoughts.
Dermer called the coverage “shameful,” adding that it actually endangers Palestinian civilians because by failing to properly analyze what is going on in the Middle East, the Hamas “terrorists are… embedding their arsenals of rockets and missiles and weapons and bombs and drones in civilian areas.”
