How Liberals Argue: Hamas Has a Right to Exist

Political parties have a right to exist. It's a violation of long standing international laws for a political party to fire on populations as an opening gambit of negotiations. Defending oneself against such an action is not a violation of long standing laws, it's called self-defense. Hamas isn't negotiating. They're firing on Israel.

Richard,

Hamas and many Palestinians would argue that they are firing in self-defense as well. They would site Israel's continued military occupation and tactic of isolating Gaza as a direct act of war that has led to the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands, of Palestinian children and elderly through starvation and lack of proper medical supplies and treatment. They see those deaths as the result of Israeli policy, and Hamas is lashing out accordingly/

Whether or not you agree with this rationale, Hamas would argue that they are not the aggressors.

Last night on Hannity, I debated President of the America Together Foundation Michael Ghouse on the crisis between Israel and Hamas. At one point in the segment, Ghouse argued Hamas, a terrorist organization, has a right to exist.


Today, Israel dropped a message in Gaza warning civilians about an imminent strike and urged them to temporarily evacuate their homes.

To the residents of Sheikh Ijleen, Tal al Hawa, Remal al-Janoub, Zeitoun neighbourhood, Shoujaiyat al-Tourkman, Shoujaiyat al-Jadida:

The Israeli military is not targeting...
