Arab journalist: 'Israelis value human life more than we do'

This video came from Lebanon's LBC Television on Thursday January 8. In it, two Arab journalists, Uqab Saqr and May Chidiac, complain that whereas once Arabs had many defeats and no casualties, now they have many casualties and no defeats. They attribute this to the small value the Arabs put on human life. They are right. And Osama Hamdan, Hamas' representative in Lebanon whom we saw this morning, knows it too, which is why he sits in silence.

Let's go to the videotape.

Its rare to hear Arab journalists upbraid a Hamas representative with such frank candor and tell him by implication his viewpoint isn't the one that should be followed. If only that was the real sentiment on the Arab Street, Israel and the Arabs would already be at peace. Educated Arabs can see where the low regard on human life and hatred of Israel is leading the Arab World. Unfortunately, that's a minority sentiment in the region. Osama Hamdan couldn't refute it because he knows its not a normal human reaction. And Hamas has of course brainwashed an entire population to value death more than life and it - not Israel - is responsible for the bloodshed happening in Gaza today.

Here's a Hat Tip for you, Carl - that is relevant to the thread. Muslim girls in Lebanon dream of blowing themselves up. People are not valued for what they can contribute to the good of mankind but rather how many people they can kill along with themselves. That is the Arab view of the worth of a human life.
