CNNís Jake Tapper Demolishes PLO Spokeswoman (VIDEO)
Washington Free Beacon ^ | July 10 2014 | Washington Free Beacon Staff

Posted on 07/10/2014 3:38:16 PM PDT by PoloSec

CNN’s Jake Tapper thoroughly demolished and exposed as a liar one of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s foremost purveyors of propaganda Thursday during a tense interview.

Tapper invited former PLO spokeswoman and legal advisor Diana Buttu to explain why Hamas is launching terror rockets and trying to kill Israeli citizens.

Buttu attempted to push several lies about the conflict, but was quickly shot down by Tapper.

“Why is Hamas launching rockets into Israeli population centers and are any other Palestinians trying to stop them from doing so?” Tapper asked.

Buttu attempted to skirt the question and claim that the Palestinians have sought a ceasefire, which is untrue. Hamas has rebuffed multiple Israeli attempts to end hostilities.

“Okay. I’m glad you got out your talking points there,” Tapper responded to Buttu’s disinformation. “Let’s get back to my question: Why is Hamas launching missiles into population centers of Israel? And are any other Palestinians trying to stop them from doing so?”

Buttu could not truthfully answer the question, inaccurately stating: “There have been attempts to try to stop all of this, but the fact of the matter is that the Israelis have indicated that they are not interested in brokering a cease fire or seeing any cease fire take shape whatsoever.”

Butto refused to admit that Hamas leaders are ordering Palestinians to ignore Israeli warnings and be intentionally killed in airstrikes.

“We have video of the Hamas spokesman on television telling people to stay in their homes, that it’s an effective way to make sure, to fight off the Israelis. That’s not racist. That’s just a fact,” Tapper said.

Buttu again deflected the question, prompting Tapper to explain how Hamas promotes a “culture of martyrdrom.”

“There is a culture of martyrdom we hear about all the time.

Bull! He employed mild indignance while interviewing the woman...and then pulled away from it at the conclusion.

I doubt the kids at Washington Free Beacon have EVER witnessed a truly professional grilling interview that seeks to reveal what is the truth. I'm sure they haven't! But they sure have learned to spring forth with sophomoric adjectives and alliteration.

She is a tool. To say muslims do not have a culture of martyrdom was moronic and Tapper called her on it. Thanks for posting.

Of course, we could ask that the Palestinians unilaterally stop the missiles, you know, as a sign of good faith. Something the PLO would ask of the Israelis, or as libs demand the US do whenever we "negotiate" with an adversary.

Yeah. Fat chance.

Hamas will start asking for a cease fire when they are starting to run out of missiles.

They will cry for a cease fire when their leadership is destroyed, their batteries are empty and their will is demolished, giving them time to reload and once again rain hell on Israel.

Instead of bandying words with that jihadist bitch, he should have given her one more chance to answer the question, and then start pistol-whipping her live on the air.

I love the pro-Palestinian bullshit: Launch missiles against civilians, then, when the Israelis start handing your asses to you, cry “TIME OUT!” and beg for the “international community” to bail you out. Unfreakinbelievable!
