“Hamas the Oppressed,” by Juan Williams (VIDEO)

by MsUnderestimated — Categories: Fox News, Hamas, Liberal Bed-Wetters, Terrorism, Video, War on Terror30 Comments

First, apologies for the abrupt start to the video. As Trace Gallagher says on the tape, Fox News Sunday is rejoined after a breaking press conference about the tragic plane crash in Kentucky.

You know, I was getting more and more hopeful this past that Juan might be coming to his senses, especially on the heels of all of his appearances recently about his new book, “Enough,” but tonight’s panel just brought me back down to earth. Again, Brit has to take him to task. Hamas opressed? Scuse me, Juan?

Chris starts out discussing their first viewing of the “conversion” video, and said that when they first say this, they then did not know this was going to have a happy ending. Here’s a partial transcript of the exchange between tell-it-like-it-is Brit, and left-wing, peace-at-any-price Juan:

HUME: Yes, and what an appealing faith these thugs must believe Islam is, that conversions have to be effected at the point of a gun. And what of the argument that all of the ills and troubles that beset the Palestinian people, that lead them to terrorism, are the cause of what they endlessly refer to as the illegal Israeli occupation.

Consider the latest rounds of trouble in Gaza and Lebanon, two places from which Israel has withdrawn.

It has been noted that not for one day after the Israeli pullout from Gaza did the rocket attacks that came from Gaza ever stop. We’re not dealing here with something that is susceptible to a political resolution of the kind of which the State Department and many a president has dreamed.

We’re dealing here with a lawless enemy whose goal far transcends any side-by-side, two-state solution. That isn’t going to do it. We’re dealing with a terrorist, gangland-style enemy, which I think it’s fair to conclude, and this episode only further illustrates it, must be defeated.

WILLIAMS: I don’t think there’s any question that these people have been beaten down, occupied, oppressed, and that you’re going to say, all of a sudden, you know what, it’s gangland. All true, Brit, but you’re saying because, suddenly, Israel pulls back, you expected that immediately there would be hats off, hey old fellow, have a beer on me?

These people, not only is their chaos, they don’t really have a government. And, as you know, there have been sanctions put in place against them and their government because of the activities of Hamas.

HUME: I can imagine the conversation that must have unfolded, Bill, in which these hoodlums sat around in a basement somewhere and decided that because of the sanctions that have been imposed on the Palestinian Authority and the leadership of the terrorist organization Hamas that they must go out and snatch a couple of unarmed, innocent Americans and hold them at bay and then force them to convert to Islam by gunpoint.

Somehow, Juan, I just don’t see the connection.


Are you kidding, Juan?

WILLIAMS: I just don’t think it’s going to be an instantaneous turnaround to a peaceful, organized group of people after the horrors that they have been through and their history of fighting against Israel and the deep enmity that exists.

I mean, it’s a horrible situation, but to say, oh, because the Israelis pulled out, that they should behave now in a better way. We should not have any more problems.

HUME: Well, Juan, let me ask you this. Should they behave better?

WILLIAMS: I was hoping that they would behave better. I hope that they will organize themselves. I think Bill and I would agree that the reasons the sanctions were put in there was because people view Hamas as a terrorist organization and you want…

HUME: With good reason.

And at the end, Chris then plays a clip from Centanni & Wiig’s release, and this time you could hear Steve’s breaking voice, all choked up, as he hugged the first person in the door. This is he first time I’ve heard the audio part of that tape, but the embrace has now become infamous and seen ’round the world.

Watch the FNS Panel video here.

Michelle Malkin is also on this, as is Wizbang.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I had also begun to have a little respect for Juan Williams lately, but this brought me back to reality. I still respect the message of his book, but this transcript & video reminded me that, in the end, he's still a giant schmuck.

    An amazing scene unfolded before the world over the weekend, as two Fox News journalists were released by their kidnappers after they “converted” to Islam at gunpoint. One would suppose the secular and often “Godless” American media would have…

    Whenever I Juan on one of the Fox panels, I know that it will be entertaining. I keep rooting for the guy because I get the feeling that he knows what he says is complete lunacy. But he so hangs onto his liberal dogma like his survival in the world of NPR depends on it.

    Stuck on stupid (the Hamas apologists).

All true, Brit, but you’re saying because, suddenly, Israel pulls back, you expected that immediately there would be hats off, hey old fellow, have a beer on me?” (Juan, Is six years long enough to wait? Ask Hezbollah — apparently the answer is NO.)

    “These people, not only is there chaos, they don’t really have a government. And, as you know, there have been sanctions put in place against them and their government because of the activities of Hamas.”

    …….

    “WILLIAMS: I just don’t think it’s going to be an instantaneous turnaround to a peaceful, organized group of people after the horrors that they have been through (as opposed to the horrors they have inflicted on the Israelis all out of proportion to the harm inflicted by Israel on them) and their history of fighting against Israel and the deep enmity that exists (on the Palestinian side anyway).”

    “I mean, it’s a horrible situation, but to say, oh, because the Israelis pulled out, that they should behave now in a better way. We should not have any more problems.”

    ………

    “WILLIAMS: I was hoping that they would behave better. I hope that they will organize themselves. I think Bill and I would agree that the reasons the sanctions were put in there was because people view Hamas as a terrorist organization and you want…”

    ———-

    Does this mean that Juan and the Dhimmicrats will now give a pass to the new Iraqi government since they suffered so long under such an oppressive regime that “these people have been beaten down, occupied, oppressed, and that ……… because, suddenly, America pulls back, you expected that immediately there would be hats off, hey old fellow, have a beer on me?” (Tell me again why we are there? To finish the job and protect the new Iraqi government until it defeats the Islamofascists and at the same time we are protecting America? Sounds right to me!)

    Since I also just don’t think it’s going to be an instantaneous turnaround to a peaceful, organized group of people after the horrors that the Iraqis have been through and their history of fighting against Israel, America, their neighbors and each other, and the deep enmity that exists between us and them and al Qaeda, I'm just wondering if Juan and the Dhimmicrats will give the plan to stay until a friendlier form of Islam is firmly in place in Iraq a second chance. What do you think? I didn't think so either.

    I mean, it’s a horrible situation, but to say, oh, because the Americans pulled out, that the Iraqis should behave now in a better way, we should not have any more problems, is unrealistic…. I was hoping that they would behave better. I hope that they will organize themselves….

    Imagine that. Unrealistic. I wonder how those thoughts could have ever escaped Juan's mouth?

    So bad behavior by Iraqis after their tyrannous dictatorship is overthrown is not allowed, is bad. But bad behavior by Palis after their land is returned and the Democratic and admittedly humane Undictator, Israel, leaves and gives them what they want is OK, to be expected?

    BWAh hahahahah

    Where are the Consequences?…

    Freed reporter Steve Centanni made it an early point in his first public comments. He stated he hoped he and Olaf Wiig's kidnapping ordeal would not dissuade other reporters from continuing to venture into Gaza to “tell the story of the Palestinians…
