Hamas spokesman Osama Hamdan on Monday defended a video interview of him repeating the “blood libel” slur — that Jews killed Christians and baked their blood into matzah — by saying that he had no problem with Jews as a people and even had Jewish friends.

“You cut the words — not you, the Israelis. They cut the facts and start this propaganda to say they are innocent,” Hamdan, videoing in from Qatar, said to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “I have Jewish friends supporting the Palestinian cause.”

Notice how he asks the Jewish Wolf Blitzer not to “cut him.” And it’s not even Passover.

    CNN might be thinking of shaking up it’s line up with the addition of “The Osama Hamdan Show.” Features Naturei Karta members in the “Some of My Best Friends are Jews” segment. Got to be better than the reworked “Crossfire” program.

      Oh man, Crossfire 2.0 is beyond terrible.

      He asked Blitzer not to cut him. Must have mistaken the reporter for a mohel.

    You can easily tell the difference between Blitzer and Sean Hannity, who would be all over this scum. One question not asked: What is he doing in Qatar when his people are being killed in Gaza? Isn’t that cowardice?

    hamdam has practiced these talking points as he uses them in every interviiew

    in one, he slipped and said, “we accept moses and jesus and say that they are on the same level as mohammed, pbuh and i would like to remind you that the jews do not accept jesus and mohammed….” the interviewer did not follow up on that statement
