Opposition Leader Yair Lapid slams the international community and media for perceived bias regarding Israel’s ongoing war with Hamas.
In particular, Lapid attacks the media for being quick to adopt the terror organization’s narrative that Israel was responsible for a deadly blast near a Gaza hospital and casting doubt on Israeli and American government findings that the explosion was caused by a failed Palestinian Islamic Jihad rocket launch.
“Do you think an organization that has no problem butchering babies, butchering pregnant women and abducting a 14-year-old autistic girl with her 80-year-old grandmother, has any problem lying?” the opposition leader asks in a special briefing to the international press in Tel Aviv.
“Of all the distortions of the press coverage of these past days the worst one is the balance,” he adds, saying that the story of a democratic country and a terror group should not be presented “equally.”
“Hamas lies as a policy,” he says.
