The White House is saying they have not seen any "smoking gun" evidence

This is a massive story! Both the AP and Al-Jazeera media offices were sharing space with Hamas terrorists in a building owned and operated by a Hamas group.

Israeli intelligence uncovered the connections before destroying the building in an airstrike.

Leftist media are LITERALLY acting as human shields for Islamic terrorists, something many of us suspected all along, and it's now confirmed. These are war crimes.

Biden, a known anti-semite, will of course do nothing about this, but at least Israel did his job for him and exposed this incredibly dangerous partnership.

Not even remotely accurate or truthful.

In your little bigoted world, I'm sure you believe that. In the real world, facts don't lie just because you don't like Jews.

How would that justify a missile strike on a building full of innocent people, not to mention International News Outlets?
I'll give you a hint. If you are given word your building is about to be bombed from above or attacked by missiles (which they were), you should leave (which they did) unless you wish to be a martyr for your office building owner. Renting space to multiple news organization doesn't mean you can run a terrorist cell out of it with impunity. It don't work that way. Only a dumb ass would think it did.

Exactly how could anyone run a "terrorist cell" out of a commercial building?
If you were trying to hide some sort of illegal activity, the last place you would put it is in a building full of reporters.
But so far, there is zero evidence.
So then isn't it more likely Israel instead just wanted to prevent reporters from being able to do their job, reporting?

And are we supposed to accept that anything then associated with the legitimate elected government of Hamas, is a legitimate target?
Since Hamas runs the elementary schools, are they going to be bombed next?
They would probably run it on a different floor, using phones, computer,etc, since it was supposed to be an intelligence operation. Haven't seen Israel trying to prove anything to the world in general and do not expect to. You guys ought to call it off instead of getting your people killed for nothing. Cause if you can't win, and you can't, that is what you are accomplishing, getting your people killed for nothing,

Jews are fine. It's the Israeli government and the Zionist "settlers" that I have a problem with. Guess who feels the same?

A whole lot of Israeli Jews on the left

I suggest YOU read it again

Here let me help

"US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said Monday he “has seen no evidence” presented by Israel of the group’s presence in the building."

IDF made the false claim. The onus is on them to provide it. They wont. They will give it some thought for a few days and hope that we forget.
That's what you've decided, anyway. And how much credence should we give to someone
that decides HIS wishes and biases are fact?
None at all.

And Israel insists otherwise. What would be Israel's motivation to lie about the demolition of this building?
Where is the advantage in that for them?

By what rational can anyone claim that a building can be demolished because it may be owned by the democratically elected government of a country?

Did the US attack buildings like hospitals or schools because they were owned by the governments of Germany or Japan during WWII?

Is Israel claiming rockets were being fired from this building?
If so that is a lie.
What possible justification could there be for demolishing a building like this, and isn't it simply more likely Israel was deliberately intimidating the Press?

The motivation to lie about the use of the building would be to disrupt the Associated Press, intimidate them, and prevent them from doing proper reporting.

Great guess. It makes no sense, but good guess.

wow...even the Atlantic was calling the AP out back in 2014 for this:

But a 2014 article in The Atlantic written by a journalist in the region described a history between the news agency and Hamas and critics took to social media to cast doubt on Pruitt’s assertion.

“@AP didn’t know about sharing a building w/ Hamas for 15 years?!?” tweeted Gabe Hoffman, producer of the documentary “An Open Secret.”

Noah Pollack, a contributor to the Free Beacon, said in a tweet: “Spoke to a well-placed friend in the IDF just now. The bombed AP office building contained multiple Hamas operations & offices including weapons manufacturing and military intelligence. The building also housed an Islamic Jihad office. And AP’s local reporters knew about it.”

Read further, idiot. This was the full statement.


US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that he did not see evidence from Israel that Hamas was operating out of the same building as the AP in Gaza, but that it is the job of others to handle intelligence matters.

Hasn't the IDF always lied?
For example, when they attacked the USS Liberty and murdered 32 US sailors?
Has it? That old USS Liberty bullshit just doesn't hold up under examination. :rolleyes:
Yet Jew haters like you always pull the story out of their ass even though the idea of
Israel deliberately attacking their number one ally makes zero sense!

The incident was investigated and Israel claims they mistook the Liberty for an Egyptian vessel.
Doesn't that make more sense than Israel cutting their own throats by an uprovoked attack on their main
support and protector in the world?

Of course it does. Except to blithering idiots!

If the Sec of State puts out a statement that he has not seen this evidence, then the WH has not seen it...and THAT was the claim

It's fact

Odd how they missed that 40 foot American flag put out by the Liberty in order to get the attack to stop.

The Liberty was an intel vessel and Israel was trying to keep "prying eyes" out

But there hasn't been any claim that that evidence does not exist. Interesting.
That's backwards thinking. You can not prove a negative.

They are simply responding to the claim that evidence had been provided to them. They say it hasn't.

Israel is quite skilled at this sort of propaganda gymnastics. By the time anyone realizes that they might be lying about that, the entire world has moved on to something else.You know Bibi marveled at Trump's ability to shamelessly lie and get away with it.

That being said, Israel still may have had every right to bomb their enemies in that building.
