MSNBC Host Gets Shut Down By Ex-Prime Minister of Israel

via MSNBC

Former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett debated with MSNBC host Katy Tur and the international community about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Bennett defended Israel’s military action against Hamas, arguing that Israel is held to a different standard.

Tur began by asking, “I’m sure that there are Palestinians that can show images of their own kids that they’re worried about that have died in this, and much of the world is calling for a cease-fire.”

“A lot of allies are saying at the very least, a pause, if not voting for a cease-fire in the U.N., why do you think that so much of the world is asking Israel to stop for a moment?”

“Imagine if America, instead of Mexico, had a state of al Qaeda, with 240 American hostages, including babies, there, and this al Qaeda state entered Florida and raped women and murdered parents in front of their children, and vice versa and burnt them, would anyone ask America to cease fire against this al Qaeda state?” He pressed.

He dismissed the idea of a two-state solution, stating that Gaza had the chance to form a Palestinian state but instead used the territory to attack Israel.

“We tried precisely that. I want to be very clear to the viewers now. Until 2005, Israel occupied Gaza. In 2005, we pulled out of Gaza, back to the 1967 borders.”

“We handed the entire territory over to the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas. There was no blockade, nothing. They had the chance to form the Palestinian state that everyone’s talking about. No one stopped them.”

“They have beautiful beaches and beautiful weather, and they dedicated those 17 years to shooting rockets at us, and to killing us, so would you try it again?” he asked.

Bennett also emphasized that Israelis do not want to try dangerous experiments again.

“Gazans haven’t had a vote in 17 years because Hamas took over and hasn’t held an election, and although you gave the territory back to Gazans, and yes, they voted for Hamas, and then Hamas became radicalized, they weren’t a state,” Tur argued.

“It wasn’t like you handed over statehood.”

“But that’s beside the point,” Bennett shot back.

“We’re talking about Gaza. The West Bank is the West Bank, and Gaza is Gaza. They got everything they wanted.”

“Would you try that again? Would you experiment again after what they did? I can tell you that Israelis left and right, there’s consensus, no one wants to try experiments, dangerous experiments, again.”
