Charles Krauthammer appeared on the Sean Hannity show Thursday night to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and laid blame for ignorance of the facts at the media’s feet.

While anti-Israel protesters in Boston are chanting “Jews back to Birkenau” and similar protesters in France are chanting “Gas the Jews” members of the American media are seemingly incapable of reporting the issues with any understanding of history.

Krauthammer: ‘Rank Ignorance’ Pervasive in Media Covering Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Columnist Charles Krauthammer condemned what he called “rank ignorance” among U.S. media outlets that have harshly covered Israel as the Jewish state has battled the terrorist group Hamas this month.

On Thursday night’s Hannity, host Sean Hannity said he was dumbstruck by how people were treating the conflict, given Israel’s status as the Middle East’s lone true democracy, as well as that Hamas started the conflict, disregards Israel’s right to exist and fires rockets at civilians.

Yet media coverage has consistently focused on the deaths of Palestinian civilians during Operation Protective Edge, with many outlets ignoring the fact that Hamas has used hospitals and schools as weapons depots and employs civilians as human shields in order to garner positive press coverage when they’re killed or injured.
