JERUSALEM, Israel — Deputy Minister Dr. Michael Oren, Israel’s former ambassador to the United States, told Breitbart News on Wednesday that Hamas is using the western media to undermine Israel’s national security.
The international media, he noted, had reported the clashes as if Israel were killing innocent, young Palestinian demonstrators, even though many of the rioters were armed, and many — at least 24 of the 61 dead — were members of the Hamas terror group.
“We developed Iron Dome,” Dr. Oren said, referring to Israel’s anti-missile system, “but we have no Iron Dome, as far as I can see, for the public diplomacy and legal aspect of this, because the next war is not going to end on the battlefield, but at The Hague.
Then they cry to the world that Israel is creating a humanitarian disaster, and the world believes it, [so that] we’ll be blamed for war crimes.”
They don’t care when Syrians kill Palestinians, only when Israeli Jews kill Palestinians in self-defense — and then they don’t acknowledge it is self-defense.
