The Hamas "protest" is a terrorist attack

Printed in the Herald-Times, May 26, 2018.

To the Editor:

What we are seeing in Israel is not a "non-violent" protest. It is a terrorist action by Hamas, which has admitted that they want to send their thugs into Israel to murder innocent women and children. Hamas is sending civilians to the "protest" (terrorist attack) because they want sympathetic news coverage. Hiding among and behind civilians is a war crime.

Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East. Hamas is at war with them and these United States.

I strongly suggest anyone following this story listen to the Ben Shapiro podcast or YouTube show, because he has been excellent in exposing the misrepresentations and outright lies of the mainstream news media. Follow Mr. Shapiro at DailyWire.com.

Finally, I was fraudulently accused of "hypocrisy" in my support of Israel because Israel has a liberal abortion policy. I find it hilarious that the very same Leftists who constantly lecture everyone about "nuance" and "shades of gray" are unable to comprehend that issues have multiple facets and that we can be allies with a nation despite disagreement with some of their domestic policies. Would these same arrogant Leftists demand I renounce my support for my own nation because of abortion-on-demand here?
