  • Elder of Ziyon
This morning, after the incident on the Gaza border, CNN interviewed Diana Buttu, former PLO spokesperson.

See how she avoids answering anything, and how she lies with impunity without the interviewer making even a half-hearted attempt to blow holes in her statements:


0:19 - "The young man who was killed today was actually a farmer, who was trying to go farm his fields. There is absolutely no evidence that this was a demonstration,..."
She says this while the video is showing a demonstration! And Ma'an adds:
A relative of the dead man, who was at the scene, told Reuters that Qudaih had been trying to place a Hamas flag on the fence. He added that an Israeli soldier had fired into the air three times before Qdeih was hit in the head by a bullet.
So he was not only demonstrating - he was right at the fence and ignoring warning shots while apparently climbing it!

When asked about the bus bombing in Tel Aviv, rather than condemn it, Buttu says:
 0:51 - "Well, the incident regarding the bus occurred before the cease-fire took place - Look, I think we have to put this in its proper perspective..."
and then going on about how it is all about the "occupation." The implication is that a bus bombing is a legitimate act of war.


She then goes on to say that violence is inevitable for people under "oppression" - in other words, saying that Mahmoud Abbas' calls for "popular resistance" is simply not going to work, and Palestinian Arabs will always resort to violence. Again, the interviewer didn't press her on this matter, asking her if she felt this was their right, or what she thought about the bus bombing or the rocket fire on civilians.

She then completely ignored a decent question about whether an Islamist political takeover of the Palestinian Arabs was inevitable, answering with a terse "no" without explanation and then went back to her playbook of pretending that Israel was the only one to benefit from the Fatah-Hamas split and of course that they were using it to build new settlements - something that hasn't been done in, oh, about a decade - and somehow ethnically cleansing Arabs:
"getting rid of as many Palestinians as possible."



Again, no pushback from the host on this obvious lie.

And then Buttu goes on to say that negotiations are not ever going to work, and that the only path to peace is by having the world pressure Israel and support her murderous cousins who just terrorized a couple of million Israelis.

Gee, thanks, CNN, for allowing a propagandist liar to spew forth for three minutes without a single challenge. Great work.
