What is Piers Morgan’s Moral Quandry in Israel Hamas War?
After listening to all his debates with the eminent guests, he has interviewed or is in the process of interviewing he asks them a few questions and they are as follows.
- Do you condemn Hamas’s action on October 7? If you do then the follow-up question is
- What is the proportionate response?
He also tends to give explanations like if Hamas hides behind human shields resulting in the catastrophic loss of Palestinian civilians in Gaza & Israel’s stated goal is eradication of Hamas & bringing back Israeli hostages then how are they going to achieve this without doing what they are doing? Some of the prominent guests he has interviewed are Bassam Youssef, Prof. Norman Finkelstein, Gabor Mate, Mohammed Hijab, Rabbi Shmuley, Douglas Murrey, Eylon Levi, Andrew Tate, etc
According to Israel, Israel lost 1200 Civilians & 240 were taken captives & as per Palestinian Authority’s numbers close to 14000 people lost their lives. Both sides include children and women. The death of a man has no value in wars as supposedly they are supposed to fight & die without the limelight or attention of the media is not the conclusion because we mention them (in this article). Any loss of life in a war is a loss to humanity but having written that context is helpful in understanding the action taken by Hamas & Israel.
Piers Morgan’s Explanation
Piers Morgan is horrified at the scale at which the attack took place on October 7 2023 on a sovereign country like Israel but he is not horrified when people who do not look sane backed by the Israeli military shoot openly in the West Bank which is part of Palestine. The sovereignty of Palestine is less of importance to people in the West and Piers Morgan is no exception.
IDF is the defense force of Israel but Hamas is not the defense force of Palestine contrary to common sense it is a terrorist organisation. Israel is the occupier of parts of the West Bank & controller of the Gaza Strip and therefore not a recipient of medieval barbaric violence. However, it can raid the West Bank if it feels threatened.
Piers Morgan starts his story with the horrific attacks of October 7 whereas all the scholars who support the cause of Palestine begin their story from 1948 & the events that unfolded thereafter to understand the plight of what the Palestinians are facing. Both sides are complicit however so far the story projection of Hamas their social media presence along with propaganda is drawing more sympathy & Israel is losing its reputation in the international community.
