Naftali Bennett v. Sky News: 'When buses exploded in London, they gave out candies in Gaza'

Naftali Bennett deals with a difficult Sky News reporter who apparently thinks that Israel should supply Hamas with Iron Dome and should allow Hamas to use human shields.

Let's go to the videotape.

This woman is unbelievable....

OMG she's despicable, she didn't even respond to that remark except with ok, then changes the subject to another badgering and biased question, what a witch. Then she starts answering her own question for him even though he said Israel did ceasefire despite Hamas breaking another ceasefire, she claims Israel didn't stop firing...she's disgusting.

In G-d's name, why are the Israelis 'nice'?! They could crush once & for all Hamas, & the PLO & any moslem power that comes against them. They won't do it. Always one arm tied behing the back, voluntarily! Always the quarter & half-strength blows. Always the precision strikes. Always the idiotic cease-fires so the enemy can refresh & revictual himself for another go-around. Madness!

Kay Bailey is a horse's a-- with those loaded 'When did you stop beating your wife' questions. But why do PM Netanyahu, Minister Bennett, Mark Regev & Ron Dermer appear on such shows? It's a waste of breath. The anti-semites are scum & the dhimmis are hopeless.

I'm agitated that the Israeli Army is evacuating Gaza with the job undone. They will have to return & more Israeli blood will be shed then, when the job could be finished now. Israelis are not pawns to be treated in this or that manner by the government of the day!

Bennett is a really smart guy, but his presentation was sophomoric. These interviews place the respondent in a defensive mode. Wrong, wrong, wrong!!!

The Hamas fighters were underground and they left their women and children to absorb Israel's response. Where is that point?

There are no pictures of Hamas fighters because that would ruin the anti-Israel media campaign on behalf of the dead civilians.

"When did you stop beating your wife" questions need to be rephrased by Israeli interviewees or returned unanswered with the comment that the question is unfair because it presumes Israeli culpability. "1800 and counting! What number [of dead women and children] would be acceptable to Israel?" The proper response here is "And what number of dead Jews would be appropriate to the media in this conflict?"

Unfortunately, any pro-Israel spokesperson must really work hard to get his/her point across and avoid being interrupted by the moderator. It seems that the media often have a preconceived point of view and only want the pro-Israel side for "balance," but still give the anti-Israel side more (uninterrupted) time to make the points that the media outlet probably agrees with.

To purpletestament and jlevyellow: This is simply an example of what the pro-Israeli spokesperson has to contend with. They do need to continue to appear on such shows in order to attempt (even if it seems that this is futile) to counter the biased approach of the other side and the media who frequently (implicitly) agrees with them. If you think it's difficult now, what would you think would happen if the other side had the conversation to itself?

But, you are right that the conversation has to be reframed, regardless of having one hand tied around his/her back, to hammer the fact that it was Hamas who started the war and who stored their weapons in civilian areas, and therefore is the real war criminal here--and there is really no alternative to Israel responding to the terrorists, no matter how it looks to the world.

Israeli spokespeople are quite handicapped in explaining their side of the argument. I have noticed that whatever position is taken, whatever, questions raised, whatever information offered, Hamas and Fatah spokes people simply claim the same information, raise the same questions, and espouse the same position as Israel. This mimicking confuses listeners because they cannot recall who said what, since they both said the same thing.

The bid difference is pictures. CNN is constantly undermining Israeli arguments by using the double screen. The scenes contrast sharply with the words of the Israeli spokesperson. And even if the pictures do no present the Hamas narrative, pictures alone distract from the message. I noticed that this split screen business does not appear when a Hamas representative is speaking. Certainly there is no attempt to show a picture that contradicts or contrast with the Hamas spokesperson.
