Hamas equals ISIS in ‘grisly creeds and grisly deeds,’ Naziyahu tells a nodding Cuomo

NOVANEWS

 

Governor Andrew Cuomo met with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu today, and Netanyahu posted these joint remarks, in which he equates Hamas with ISIS in Iraq and Syria– “in their grisly creeds and their grisly deeds”– and says the U.S. must support Israel’s fight with Hamas.

At minute 2, the governor, who is on his first trip out of the United States since he assumed office three years ago, can be seen nodding during Netanyahu’s equation of Hamas and ISIS as terrorist tyrannies that “reject modernity.” Then Cuomo affirms his solidarity, and himself equates Hamas with Al Qaeda.

Netanyahu:

Representing the rejection of the false symmetry that is made. Just as you wouldn’t put America and ISIS on the same moral plane, you would never put Israel and Hamas on the same moral plane.

Remember that Hamas celebrated 9/11. They celebrated the murder of thousands of innocent people, including thousands of New Yorkers… They were standing on the roof and cheering while all of the people of Israel grieved… with the United States…

Hamas continues to do these horrible things that ISIS does. They persecute Christians, they persecute gays, they persecute women. They basically reject modernity. They are a terrorist tyranny that is imposed on their people. And when their people reject being used as human shields, you know what they do governor– they execute them!

…On one side you have Israel and the United States representing democracies committed to human rights, committed to our real future for our people. And on the other you have the likes of ISIS and Hamas, Islamist tyrannies that have no inhibition in pursuing their grisly creeds and their grisly deeds.

Cuomo seems to agree with the parallel:

We want to stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel. We want to stand in solidarity with you…

We understand what you are facing, and we support your right, your need to defend your people against terror…

[Our city and Israel share] family connections, cultural connections, historic connections– so our relations go very deep.

The fight that you fight is the fight against terror. Unfortunately in New York we’ve had a rude awakening to the pain and suffering that terror can cause in 9/11. So we have a special sensitivity in our hearts for what you’re going through now…

The discovery of these tunnels I find very troubling indeed.
