Taking a break
I generally like the podcast and think Scott is well informed and very reasonable with his take on things even if I might disagree with him on some points. Many of his guests however are Hamas apologists. Scott acknowledges that Hamas engaged in beyond the pale terrorism on Oct 7. But guest after guest refuses to acknowledge the fact that despite the video of Hamas shooting defenseless fleeing or surrendering civilians, Hamas engaged in indefensible atrocities. One clown, trying to defend Hamas, said that most of what Hamas did falls in the category of “military hostage taking”. There is no such thing. Even if we were to ignore that Hamas thugs are not lawful combatants under international law, that law prohibits taking hostages and targeting noncombatants. Hostage taking is in fact a big no no under international law. All those old ladies and children kidnapped by Hamas (and we know that happened because some were released) are not lawful targets for any military operation. I won’t even get into the murder of retirees in their homes and the slaughter of a bunch of hippie kids partying at that rave. Real heroic stuff there. They blow any credibility they have by refusing to admit these facts. I am good with Scott but need a break from the insufferable Hamas apologists.
