‘They are Terrorists’: ADL’s Greenblatt Destroys MSNBC for Downplaying Hamas Brutality in Israel

‘They are Terrorists’: ADL’s Greenblatt Destroys MSNBC for Downplaying Hamas Brutality in Israel

“But I’ve got to ask who is writing the scripts? Hamas? The people who did this, they are not fighters, Jonathan, they are not militants — and I’m looking right at the camera — they are terrorists.”

Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt destroyed MSNBC while on MSNBC over the network downplaying Hamas and the terrorist group’s brutality in Israel.

You need to watch the full video. Greenblatt looks straight into the camera, telling viewers exactly what MSNBC has not told them what has been happening in Israel.

Good for Greenblatt:

GREENBLATT: “I must say, I love this show. And I love this network. But I’ve got to ask who is writing the scripts? Hamas? The people who did this, they are not fighters, Jonathan, they are not militants — and I’m looking right at the camera — they are terrorists. It is a barbarian who rapes and brutalizes women, who kills children in front of their parents, and then brings them over to Gaza, who literally — we’ve heard all these reports and we know these aren’t just reports, these were filmed gleefully by the barbarians who committed these grotesque crimes. They filmed for example, an elderly woman in her home in one of these towns, they burned her alive in her house because she was too infirm to take out. And you know, parading women, bleeding from the crotch because they were raped throughout Gaza, while people hoot and holler and cheer. So look, you know, when we say, ‘Well, this was an escalation, it was bound to happen.’ I am sorry. This was a massacre that was pre-planned. This was not destined to happen. It is not normal to shoot teenagers in the back, hundreds of them. So I just think like, guys get the story, right. And all these pictures of like, you know, missiles, or the rubble in Gaza, please talk to the Israeli mothers and fathers who lost their children, talk to the grandchildren whose grandparents were seized as hostages, and please stop calling this a retaliation. This is a defensive measure against an organization that is committed to one thing, killing Jews — not a peaceful resolution of a conflict, but murdering Jews. And if you’re wondering if I’m exaggerating, please, I beg of you, everyone watching and everyone at this network, just watch the footage.”

My friend Seth Mandel worded it perfectly.

Isn’t Jonathan Greenblatt going to be doxed, censored and cancelled for his flagrant deviation from leftist woke dogma? Loyal wokists CANNOT tolerate such unauthorized public expressions.

    Greenblatt is progressive trash who is destroying what little respectibility the ADL has left bust his message is not wrong

Maybe he will recognize, finally, that fake journalists like those at MSNBC do not care. They are too busy looking for bogeymen and seeking fame. What better way to hang with the politicos?

Get off the reservation, Greenblatt!

    Seth Mandel has it all wrong, a wake up call for MSDNC? Never. How about a wake up call for the ADL? How about a light going on in Greenblatt’s head that the left is not his friend or a friend to the Jewish people here or anywhere in the world. May he recognize that pivoting the ADL to just one more bogus left wing organization, another SPLC wannabe, designed to smear anyone with traditional values was a monumental mistake.

    Look at what is going on at Harvard and with the Squad and with MSNBC and then realize you have chosen to side with the people that at their core hate you are your enemy in the end.

It doesn’t matter how you down play it, there will be Hamas Hunters after this war is over just like there were Nazi Hunters after WWII.

    You know what Israel needs? Israel needs a friggin 2nd Amendment.

      Milhouse in reply to NotCoach. | October 10, 2023 at 2:06 am

      Indeed. It needs a first amendment too, and a fourth, fifth, and sixth amendments. And a judiciary that is bound by the law rather than making it up as it goes along, and a DOJ that submits to the authority of the elected government it supposedly serves. Likewise a police force that takes orders from the police minister, and departmental “legal advisers” that are subject to the authority of their respective ministers. Israel has none of these things.

      Here’s my translation of the police minister’s press release, announcing an ever-so-slight relaxation of gun regulations that Michael Bloomberg can only dream of.

    diver64 in reply to Peabody. | October 9, 2023 at 4:37 pm

    I fully expect that the Hamas and Hezbollah leadership will never spend another day without looking over their shoulder wondering when it will come

They are only doing this because of poverty/food deserts/systemic racism/prison industrial complex, don’tcha know.

I do find it curious that no Western intel agency, including Israel’s, had not a clue of such as massive attack that obviously took months of planning and logistical moves that any satellite could detect.

    guyjones in reply to MarkS. | October 9, 2023 at 2:15 pm

    The post-mortem inquiry and report will explain some of what happened. But, from what I can glean, the attacks came quickly (and, bear in mind the relative small size of Israel, meaning that invaders can cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time), the missile barrage was used as a diversion and IDF troop positioning within Israel was clearly inadequate and not tactically sound.

      ThePrimordialOrderedPair in reply to guyjones. | October 9, 2023 at 4:48 pm

      Israel having allowed arabs in Gaza to “protest” at the fence in large numbers contributed to the “surprise” of the attack. International boundaries are supposed to be very serious, very deadly places to be, outside of official transit points. People who approach national boundaries at spots other than official points should be shot. Or those areas can be mined, as they have traditionally been (so long as we have had mines).

      There has been a very serious and dangerous degradation of the concept of a national border in the Western world and the price that people should pay for threatening it and breaching it. International borders should, in cases of perceived hostility from either side, be fully militarized and defended, without any questions or BS about “human rights”. There are no human rights for aliens outside of a sovereign territory. Our Constitution, for example, does not extend to anyone outside of the United States. It is not in effect outside of America.

        Or those areas can be mined, as they have traditionally been (so long as we have had mines).

        But mines are illegal now, aren’t they?

        Our Constitution, for example, does not extend to anyone outside of the United States. It is not in effect outside of America.

        Not true. It applies outside the USA, but only with regard to US citizens or residents.

        And the USA (almost alone among countries) asserts that its laws apply everywhere in the world, to people who have never even set foot in the USA, so long as a US citizen is affected by what those people do, even if it’s perfectly legal where they are.

          I think you’re speaking at cross-purposes, Milhouse. The Constitution most definitely does not apply to US citizens held under another country’s laws. It applies within the embassy. That’s it. That’s what TPOP is saying – if you’re under another jurisdiction, it doesn’t apply to you.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | October 11, 2023 at 9:14 am

          Nope. Under US law, the US constitution protects the rights of all US citizen and residents (the technical term used nowadays is “US persons”), anywhere in the world. If the US government violates your rights while you are in Singapore, you can sue it in a US court. Foreigners with no connection to the USA can’t, unless they’re actually in the USA.

The media coverage is predictably and contemptibly dishonest.

CBC sends out a memo to staff to avoid invoking the word “terrorist” to describe Hamas terrorists.

Other networks euphemistically refer to the terrorists as “militants,” or, the even more outrageously anodyne “gunmen.” These characterizations are propaganda attempts to avoid calling evil what it plainly is. It’s despicable and galling to witness.

Greenblatt is a cause of this war. He gives cover to the antisemites, including Joseph Robinette Biden, who seems to be laundering his money through Iran.

Notice that Greenblatt still feels the need to profess his Dhimmi-crat bona fides and loyalty — “I love this network, I love this show” — instead of telling these reprobates off and calling them out as wretched propagandists and apologists for evil.

    guyjones in reply to guyjones. | October 9, 2023 at 2:21 pm

    My point is that Greenblatt’s criticisms were 100% legitimate, but, he needs to take the gloves off. The time for tea party niceties and flattery is over. People who stand with Hamas and rationalize their barbarism and savagery are the modern-day equivalent of collaborators with German National Socialists.

    Paula in reply to guyjones. | October 9, 2023 at 2:39 pm

    “I Iove this network, I love this show, I love being invited to the White House.“

    I wonder if he had a good time at the White House party: “While Hamas is holding Americans hostage, Joe Biden is enjoying a BBQ at the White House with a live band.”

      guyjones in reply to Paula. | October 9, 2023 at 3:58 pm

      The dotard-marionette occupying the White House geriatric ward is wretched and utterly vile, as are his handlers and chaperones. Hell, I’m not feeling kindly towards any Dhimmi-crat, at present.

    randian in reply to guyjones. | October 10, 2023 at 1:15 am

    Greenblatt is saying the right thing here, but he’s still a snake committed to undermining the US.

Given Jonathan Greenblatt’s comment that I love this show and I love this network, as well as his actions as head of the ADL, it is hard to believe that he is not on the side of Hamas.

thalesofmiletus | October 9, 2023 at 2:49 pm

Cool, ADL. Now apply that reasoning to America’s borders.

ADL Prez Greenblatt – Barry functionary/butt kisser/stooge – gets a bit excised over on MSNBC. Ho Hum.

Every network show makes mistakes and backs the wrong party or candidate and they usually acknowledge it. But msnbc never does and they insult and defame any R or conservative they mention on their horrible show. For this whiner to finally see something that offends him and sees how one-sided it is, can he understand how we feel about them 24/7? They had a woman on as a guest that blamed all of this on Israel! They let her pontificate for ten minutes without interruption. I was so angry I almost threw my coffee cup at the screen. Talk about aiding and abetting a terrorist group, msnbc is it.

Fake posturing to try and legitimize his org’s bullshit positions while there’s a crisis worth not wasting for his schemes.

A low-IQ group gets a pass against a high-IQ group. They’re pets for the left, not so much as a matter of fact but as a matter of narrative. It’s the narrative that the left likes to live in, sort of as an entertainment choice.

George_Kaplan | October 9, 2023 at 10:32 pm

Greenblatt referenced some ambassador who said it was 9/11 for scale, but more like Nagasaki for scale. Is moral equivalency being made? Or am I reading too much into this?

JackinSilverSpring | October 9, 2023 at 11:30 pm

The Leftist JINO who heads the Association of Democrat Leftists has been mugged by reality.

    Nah, he’s just as leftist as ever. And just as much an apologist for the Democrat Party. He reserves the right to criticize people on his side when they let their antisemtism show, but he will not stray from the reservation.

According to Ron Paul, Hamas was a creation of out Intel community. It is a matter of time before Antifia and BLM backfire as another Intel failure.

From Revolver News

Sadly, this isn’t really “shocking” news when you consider the history of the United States. Many of the terrorist groups currently in existence have been influenced or supported in some way by the United States. This often happens when the U.S. is involved in funding wars or supporting certain groups labeled as “rebels.” As time passes, these same “rebels” we once supported often become our sworn enemies, perpetuating the cycle of endless forever wars.

    Milhouse in reply to MarkSmith. | October 11, 2023 at 7:41 pm

    This is why after Sep-11-2001 I stopped supporting Ron Paul’s presidential ambitions. He’s good on domestic policy, but on foreign affairs he’s off the wall.

    It is true that in Hamas’s early years Israel helped it a lot, in order to build it up as a rival to the PLO. No apologies for that; it was a sensible tactic at the time. And yes, in war time you do arm your enemy’s enemies, even if they could easily be your enemies in different circumstances. In WW2 we armed the USSR, fercryinoutloud. Was that wrong?! No, at the time it was right.

    Some of these claims, though, are just plain false. Such as the idea that the USA ever funded the Taliban, or al Qaeda. Some US funding may have reached al Qaeda indirectly, through Pakistan, but the USA never gave it a penny. And the Taliban didn’t exist while we were funding the Afghan rebels against the USSR; on the contrary, we funded the Muhahedin, later known as the Northern Alliance, whom the Taliban then ousted. Claims that the US funded the Taliban in the first part of 2001 were also just outright false.

If it were American parents, MSNBC and the ADL would perfectly align.

The ADL’s only real concern that isn’t wholly progressive is Israel.
