Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday shouted down a Palestinian guest who would not say whether he viewed Hamas as a terrorist organization.
The exchange between Hannity and Yousef Munayyer, the executive director of The Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center in Washington, was hostile from the outset as Hannity accused Munayyer of rationalizing Hamas rocket fire and blaming the victims of the Israel-Gaza conflict.
"Is Hamas a terrorist organization?" Hannity asked.
“Do I get to actually speak now?” Munayyer said.
“You get to answer the question, it’s a simple yes or no question,” Hannity said.
“Sir, you invited me on here as a guest,” Munayyer said.
“I’m asking a question," Hannity pressed. "Is Hamas, whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel, is that a terrorist organization? That’s a yes or no question.”
“Thank you for your question and now I will provide an answer,” Munayyer replied. “It’s very telling to me, and it should be telling to your viewers by the way, that the moment you have a Palestinian voice on your program who begins to explain the legitimate grievances of Palestinians on the ground, not just Hamas--”
Hannity then began shouting at Munayyer to answer the original question.
"Am I a guest on your program or am I on the witness stand here?" Munayyer asked.
"Yeah you're a guest, but you don't get to filibuster," Hannity shot back. "Answer, is Hamas a terrorist organization?"
Munayyer replied that the United States designates Hamas as such, prompting another barrage from Hannity.
"What part of this can't you get through your thick head?" the Fox host said.
As the conversation came to an end, Munayyer asked if he would get to say anything further.
"You had your chance," Hannity said as he cut off the guest. "You didn’t say Hamas is a terrorist organization. Goodbye.”

The only true power, I have come to realise, is the power of media. The power of media controls politicians. Zionists control media.

CNN and Fox News are the same both Jewish owned, largely Jewish run propaganda. This goes with left and right wing politics which are both dominated by Jews. It's just a system of divide and rule. Left wingers fighting against right wingers, but either way the Zionists always win. Remember when Bush was in power and the Democrats played the anti-war card? now look at Obama and who funds him, who controls him.

Perhaps the worst of the Zionists are the progressive Zionists for all their race baiting, double standards and dirty tactics. Look at George Soros and how he became so wealthy that's real progressive! and he funds the likes of Zionist J-street. Some say he's funding the BDS, which is controlled opposition to Israel. A boycott of Israeli goods would never work only something like sanctions would do any good and we know who dictates what countries are sanctioned don't we?
