Journalist Abdel Hamid Abdel Jaber is the Gift That Keeps on Giving

Or should that be “git”?

We have already seen “journalist” Abdel Hamid Abdel Jaber in action at the UN Press Briefing, disgracing himself with questions lacking any semblance of objectivity, while showing his intense hatred of Israel.

And sure enough, he was at it again earlier this week:

Question:  Okay.  Now my question, last Thursday, eight young Palestinians were killed in a car accident, and the European Union issued a statement.  They were between 12 and 17.  And the Palestinians expected somebody like Tor Wennesland to issue a statement just showing sympathy with the families of the deceased young men.  Maybe you say that there’s no precedent, but there was a precedent.  He issued a statement expressing his condolences and sympathy with the Israeli victims of the stampede on 30 April.  So, why in one case he issued a statement and in other similar case… I’m sure the number of people killed is not the same, of course but he didn’t issue a statement on this tragic incident…?

Spokesman:  Let me check… I will check with his office.

Correspondent:  My second question…

Spokesman:  Iftikhar.  Sorry.  Go ahead.  Go ahead.  Go ahead.

Question:  Yeah.  Nasser Abu Humaid is a Palestinian prisoner who is sentenced to seven life sentences, plus 50 years, and he’s now on his death bed.  He had a terminal cancer case, and he’s about to lose his life.  And there’s so much appeal for Israeli authorities to… at least to pay medical attention to his case.  Are you aware of this case?

Petty doesn’t begin to describe that first question.

Regarding the second question, the “prisoner” Nasser Abu Humaid was sentenced to seven life sentences plus 50 years for murdering seven Israelis, as well as 12 counts of attempted murder, and offenses of conspiracy to murder and activity in a terrorist organization. Funny how our intrepid reporter doesn’t mention that part.
