The White House on Friday blasted Hamas for violating a 72-hour cease-fire agreement, calling the abduction of an Israeli soldier barbaric.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest acknowledged reports that Hamas had used the cease-fire as cover to carry out an attack on Israeli soldiers.
That would be a rather barbaric violation of the cease-fire agreement, Earnest said on CNNs New Day. Hamas is entirely responsible for upholding their end of the bargain, and its apparent that they did not do that."

This is from The Onion, right?
LOL at the White House being shocked that a TERRORIST organization who in their own charter calls for the destruction of Israel, wouldn’t keep up with their end of the bargain
He is incensed because they did it in a way it which it could be proved that ‘they’ violated it.
No I had to check it twice to make sure.
Well, Mr. White House, what do you expect barbarians to do?
“I believe silence will be met with silence”
Don’t tell me that Obama doesn’t sincerely believe this.
The White House had their fingers crossed while saying it
“Victims” won’t be violent if the oppressors stop oppressing.
They truly believe this.
Since when did “would be rather barbaric” (implying that they didn’t do it) turn into “blasts” ... Just asking.
this is one of those statements that will not be repeated or quietly walked back. It’s just an effort to be on all sides to deflect criticism.
Moochelle should tweet #HamasThatWasBarbaric. That’d teach ‘em :-)
"...reminiscent of genghis khan"?
The headline pretends it is definitive.
It is not.
The headline does NOT match the future subjunctive
that the Hamas White House used to protect its
funding, weaponizing, and protecting of Hamas.
It is definitely the Hamas White House.
The only thing I can think is that Obama believes he will be at the top of the heap in the new caliphate.
“Hamas is entirely responsible for upholding their end of the bargain”
Has Hamas ever, even once, since it was formed...honored a cease fire?
Why on earth would you expect something different now.
Maybe this was just the actions of lone wolf extremists with no connection to any terrorist organizations or possibly even WORKPLACE VIOLENCE!
“Barbaric “ seems to be the Administration’s new favorite word.
Barbarians acting like barbarians..who would have thunk?
Well, I’m guessing that’s what the cabal in the White House is probably concocting as a backstory. WH has a script, and somebody, some Muslim somewhere didn’t read it and the Prez is understandably pissed.
I would state with confidence that EVERY cease fire since 1948 was broken by an attack on Israel.
No one, but NO ONE, believes anything coming out of the White (Out) House.
The only believable thing emanating from that sewer hole is the stench.
I’m sure Hamas is shaking in their boots knowing they actually lost Josh Earnest now. < /sarc >
Seriously when (if ever) are these fools going to realize neither side cares what we, the US, does or says anymore? Our authority as a leader has been thoroughly vanquished by our own incompetence.
One day wonder.
If this was Bubba Clinton, I’d say he was trying to triangulate the situation. Since it’s Obama, I’d have to say the pres is confused about the situation because he’s not smart enough to understand what’s going on, and reading about it makes his brain hurt.
Of course they’ll still blame it on Israel.
Maybe the White House will make a JibJab with Obama’s head on Rocky...
That would be a rather barbaric violation of the cease-fire agreement, Earnest said on CNNs New Day.
It “would be a rather barbaric violation...?” Would be IF WHAT? How about IT IS A BARBARIC VIOLATION OF THE CEASEFIRE AGREEMENT??? F’ing morons, they can’t even speak the unvarnished truth when it smacks them in the face.
Hamas is entirely responsible for upholding their end of the bargain, and its apparent that they did not do that.”
REALLY? You mean the the eviiiiiiil JOOOOOOOOS are not responsible for Hamas terrorists coming through a tunnel to kidnap an Israel soldier after killing several more? Wow, who woulda thunk it? Thanks, Josh, for clearing that up, oh Master of the Obvious.
Hamass = Barbaric, welcome to the party pal, you get the Captain Obvious award for the year!
Welp. I guess I’m with Hamas now.
moslems being moslems
Hamas—frickin’ islamic LIARS who our LIAR in chief will stand with when ill winds blow.
