Watch: Hamas Official Grilled on CNN for Anti-Semitic Comments


Hamas spokesman Osama Hamdan was grilled yesterday by CNN's Wolf Blitzer, over anti-Semitic comments he made in an interview with a Lebanese TV network.

Speaking to Al Quds TV, Hamdan had repeated as "fact" the notorious anti-Semitic blood libel accusations made by the Church in the middle ages, in which Jews were falsely accused of murdering Christian children to use their blood in religious rituals. The accusations never involved any evidence, and were used by Christian religious leaders to incite deadly pogroms against European Jews, slaughtering many thousands.
