The media needs to condemn Hamas for using Palestinian babies and civilians as shields.
There is often no sharp line between combatants and civilians when it comes to Hamas terrorists and their facilitators, since Hamas does not have a regular army with uniforms and other criteria for distinguishing between the two.
Anyone who joins these “pro-Palestine” protests or signs their petitions should know what they’re supporting: not the Palestinian people who seek peace but Hamas terrorists who seek to destroy Israel and the Jewish people.
The First Amendment gives anti-Israel protesters the right to be immoral. It gives them the right to lie and to reflect antisemitic bigotry. The First Amendment, though, also gives us the right, indeed the responsibility, to call out this immorality, mendacity, and double standard.
No matter how much damage Israel inflicts on the Hamas military, Iran-inspired terrorism will not be deterred.
The collateral deaths of Palestinian civilians, caused directly by the Hamas decision to use them as human shields, would be the moral, political, and legal responsibility of Hamas.
Every time a Palestinian or Israeli civilian is killed, Hamas wins. That’s why they use children and women as human shields. That’s why they boast that their civilians love death in the way Israelis love life. That is why Islamic jihad fires rockets from areas near hospitals.
The only way to deter terrorist attacks on Israel is to punish who’s responsible: Iran
Trump’s opponents believe that the reelection of President Trump would be more dangerous than compromising his constitutional rights. That is a shortsighted view that endangers future generations of Americans.
Interpreting this post-Civil War amendment as a general provision for disqualifying candidates who some people may believe participated in what they regard as an insurrection or rebellion—as distinguished from a protest or even a riot—would create yet another divisive weapon in our increasingly partisan war.
