Blitzer Allows Syrian Cabinet Minister To Compare Israel To Nazi Germany Unchallenged (Video)
I generally think Wolf is pretty good, but today on Late Edition he allowed Syrian Cabinet Minister Bouthaina Shaaban to get away with rhetorical murder without ever bothering to challenge her B.S.
After warning Wolf that the world needs to stop Israel now before it takes this conflict beyond the Middle East, Shaaban tells Wolf to “remember” that, “Nazi Germany was claiming that it was fighting terrorism and then the whole world had to stop that. We are fighting something very similar to what happened as a result of the actions of Nazi Germany against civilians.”
Watch it for yourself:
Notice that there’s absolutely no follow-up from Blitzer. Nothing. He just moves on to the next question as if Shaaban had said that the sky is blue. Unbelievable. When anyone–especially someone of Shaaban’s status–equates the actions of Israel today to those of the Nazi Germany, he should be challenged and made to look like the fool that he is. But something tells me that Wolf was more concerned about keeping Shaaban as guest on his program rather than putting this vicious woman in her place.
