Rubio: ‘Outrageous’ American Media is Defending Hamas (Washington Free Beacon)

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) lashed out at the media for their slanted coverage of the Israel-Palestinian conflict Thursday, blaming the terrorist group Hamas for the continuing violence and mass casualties.

“Please don’t…say that both sides are to blame here – that’s not true. This crisis would end tomorrow if Hamas would turn over its rockets and stop bombarding people,” Rubio said.

Rubio called Hamas commanders “cowards” for hiding in the basement of their command center while they ask their people to fight.

He continued, “Don’t tell me both sides are to blame here because it’s not true. It isn’t true. This is the result of one thing and one thing alone: Hamas has decided to launch rockets against Israel.”
