Hillary Clinton: Hamas Uses Human Shields Because ‘Gaza is Pretty Small’

July 29, 2014 - 9:26 AM

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explained that Hamas hides their military weapons among civilians due mainly to geography, not religious extremism or hatred of the state of Israel.

In an interview with Fusion TV, Clinton said “Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets in civilian areas; part of it is because Gaza is pretty small and it’s densely populated.”

At no time does Clinton mention the official charter of Hamas, a terrorist organization, which denies the right of Israel to exist and asks all Muslims to help “obliterate” it:

Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."

But, it seems Sec. Clinton believes geographical limitations trump deeply-held religious hatred, in terms of motivations for terrorism.
