Quote Me, Howie: Fred Friedman Hamas attack 'immoral and shameful beyond words'


Fred Friedman on the Hamas attack on Israel – "This is the worst time since 9/11. The despicable Hamas terrorist attack on innocent Israelis and tourists from all over requires difficult and complicated decisions for Israel. If they do little, the terrorists will regard them as weak and attack again. If innocent people are killed, and they undoubtedly will be, by any response, Israel will invite more attacks. If Hamas murders hostages, especially foreign hostages, they will attract more enemies, and a greater retaliation. 


If it is beyond question proven, and that is a large if, that Iran helped plan this, we all risk a far wider and more difficult and bloody war. The Hamas attack was immoral and shameful beyond words, some decisions by the Netanyahu government have also been shameful, but nothing morally authorizes what this Hamas terrorist group did. It is inexplicable to me how Israeli, American, and British highly funded and highly protected intelligence agencies did not see this coming and prevent this. This is not a mentally ill lone wolf murdering people with an automatic weapon. This took many months or more of planning. But American radicals saying we invited this by giving Iran $6 billion back when the money is still controlled by us and has not been touched is just making up facts and looking for a one person scapegoat."
