On Middle East matters Charles Krauthammer is a staunch Israeli defender, he’d rationalize genocide on Israel’s behalf. He won’t gain any real credibility until he expresses some compassion or empathy for the plight of the Palestinians and the cruel injustices they suffer at the hands of the Israelis. He’s disingenuous and makes false straw men by saying Gaza is not occupied, what a specious argument. In a very narrow literal sense part of what he says is true, but he knows full well that the Israelis have blockaded the Gaza, illegally, for the last the last 7+ years, that’s hardly free, nor would most say unoccupied. The Gazans are as free as the prisoners in a well policed jail. Krauthammer is an articulate mouthpiece, useful to the Israeli Lobby for his willingness to always promote Jewish / Israeli propaganda.
