Hamas: Gideon Levy, A Rare Voice of Courage, Bravery

Al Qassam.jpgLevy Al Qassam.jpg

Hamas' Al-Qassem Web site has published an interview with Gideon Levy and praised the non-Arabic speaking Ha'aretz correspondent for the Palestinian areas as "a rare voice of courage and bravery."

Levy, among other statements such as calling Israeli soldiers "trigger happy," reveals his abhorrence of the Jewish state within any borders, not simply the post-1967 boundaries. He states:

The moderate Zionists are like the Zionist left in Israel, which I can't stand. Meretz and Peace Now, who are not ready, for example, to open the "1948 file" and to understand that until we solve this, nothing will be solved. Those are the moderate Zionists. In this case, I prefer the right-wingers.

I know Caroline Glick's rants are addictive, but really, Levy didn't do any interview with Hamas. Al-Qassam lifted this text from another site (see link). It wasn't Hamas which "praised" the Haaretz reporter, it was David Cronin, Brussels correspondent for the Inter Press Service, whose article was plagiarized by Al-Qassam.

GH: You impute a lot of misstatements to the above post that just aren't there. The blog post says the Hamas published the article. It did.

The title seems accurate given the fact that Hamas saw fit to publish the article with the headline it did.

And I've reread the post a couple of times looking for any reference to Caroline Glick and can't find it. What are you talking about.

If you've got a problem with Hamas plagiarizing the article, call them.
