Hamas spokesperson likens Netanyahu to Hitler on CNN

A Hamas spokesperson who spoke to CNN Tuesday evening likened Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Adolf Hitler, and compared the current Israeli ground operation in the Gaza Strip to the Nazi campaign to eradicate the Jewish people.

Speaking to Wolf Blitzer from Doha, Qatar, Osama Hamdan tells the news anchor that Netanyahu “lost his morals” and is “reflecting a new image for Hitler and the Nazist army.”

Israeli troops, he charges, “are acting in the same way [as the Nazis], killing the Palestinians just because they are Palestinians, like what Hitler was doing in the last century.” Hamdan neglects to mention that under Hitler’s orders, Nazi Germany exterminated 6 million Jews.

CNN notes that the Hamas spokesman didn’t answer Blitzer’s inquiry as to whether the Islamist organization is deliberately targeting Ben Gurion International Airport.
