NBC News Reporter Complains U.S. Doesn't Acknowledge Hamas, Won't "Rein In" Israel (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | November 20, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

On MSNBC this afternoon, Ayman Mohyeldin, NBC News' correspondent located in Gaza, essentially went on a pro-Hamas rant when he complained that the United States doesn't acknowledge Hamas and will not "reign in" Israel.

Mohyeldin: Well the United States can definitely play a pivotal role. I don’t think people in this part of the world feel it has played the role it should be playing. And that really comes down to two very important factors: One, the United States does not have any direct contact with the Palestinian factions which it, and Israel, and others label as terrorist organizations. Despite the fact Hamas did win democratic elections here, despite the fact that it is a part of the fabric of Palestinian politics. That simply cannot be ignored or isolated or marginalized. They have instead focused on the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, and this hasn’t necessarily produced tangible results. So, there’s a lot of problems in terms of getting everyone on the same table. Not everyone sits at the same table. So, people would first, and U.S. officials in the past, including President Jimmy Carter and others, they’ve argued that that dynamic in itself has to change; there has to be a bigger, wider table for negotiations in order for this problem to be solved. The other issue has to be able to reign in Israel in terms of the actions it takes on the ground. We referenced this yesterday, one of the biggest issues, and because Israel is such a dependent recipient of U.S. military aid, and money, that when it comes to Israeli settlement expansion in the West Bank, it hasn’t stopped, despite the fact that the U.S. opposes this policy.

They should be caring because they will have to answer to Jehovah God one day. And, anyone who can watch their people get bombed every day and not care is beyond me.

Hamas is a terrorist organization in spite of MSNBC saying it isn’t.

I would gladly exchange the 0bama Jews for most of the Jews in Israel. Let them deal with the incoming bombs and missiles.

Not mom. I'm guessing another grown up like myself who is tired of reading articles we are expected to take seriously about important topics but that are written without a basic proficiency in English. It is bad enough that the MSM has chosen to renege on its first amendment responsibilities regarding the free press. But the new media sources that choose to pick up the banner and carry on need to be careful about how they present the news. Not that I am ungrateful for their efforts in seeking out facts and relaying them to the public, but get a proofreader.

They have been “reined in” enough times already, run em’ all off to Egypt and wherever, then concentrate on doing the thing on the west bank. These so “Palestinians”are not fit to live among civilized people. Learning to hate, maime, kill and disrespect women is not in the best interests of humanity. Quit with the excuses and kings axes,
do to them what they say they want to do to you.

No, No, they are just being “multicultural”. A hallmark of the left is that they will support any enemy of the US, even if they are indiscriminant murderers of children. They manage to find a rationale that makes them right and the US wrong.

Well I guess that makes all of the terror attacks OK then.

What a Hamashole.

Has anyone else figured out that that every active member of Hamas is someone's "correspondent?"
Also ambulance driver and/or "aid worker?"
How stupid are these people?
