In his latest piece published on the neoconservative online magazine National Review Online, Daniel Pipes demonstrates the extent of his utter lunacy by writing:
Hamas’s greatest strategic weapon in its effort to damage Israel’s reputation and ostracize it was neither rockets nor tunnels but wrenching photographs of dead civilians purportedly killed by the IDF.
This leads to the bizarre situation in which Hamas seeks the destruction of Palestinian property, compels civilians to sustain injuries and death, inflates casualty figures, and may even intentionally attack its own territory — while the IDF takes gratuitous fatalities to spare harm to Palestinians. The Israeli government goes further, providing medical care and food and sending technicians into harm’s way to make sure that Gazans continue to enjoy free electricity.
I’m surprised that NRO even published this transparent piece of absolute garbage that exposes Pipes to be nothing less than a raving psychopath.
