Obama Slips And Makes Brutal Admission On LIVE TV

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Speaking to his former colleagues, former President Barack Obama said that “all of us are complicit to some degree” in the continued violence in Gaza and the terror acts carried out by Hamas.

Obama seemed to draw a moral comparison between Israel’s “occupation” of Gaza and Hamas’ murder of Israelis during the Pod Save America event on Saturday.

Israel last “occupied” Gaza in 2015, when it pulled out all of its civilians and soldiers as part of a “disengagement” meant to lessen regional bloodshed.

But in retaliation, Hamas fired hundreds of rockets at Israel, starting multiple conflicts.

That’s what Obama stated: (Video segment below)

“If there’s any chance of us being able to act constructively, to do something, it will require an admission of complexity.”

“And maintaining, what on the surface may seem contradictory ideas — that what Hamas did was horrific, and there’s no justification for it; and what is also true is that the occupation [sic] and what’s happening to Palestinians is unbearable.”

“And what is also true is that there is a history of the Jewish people that may be dismissed, unless your grandparents, or your great-grandparents, or your uncle or your aunt tell you stories about the madness of antisemitism.”

“And what is true is that there are people right now who are dying who have nothing to do with what Hamas did. And what is true, right — I mean, we can go on for a while.”

“And the problem with the social media, and trying to — TikTok activism, and trying to debate this, on that, is you can’t speak the truth.”

“You can pretend to speak the truth. You can speak one side of the truth, and in some cases, you can try to maintain your moral innocence, but that won’t solve the problem. And so if you want to solve the problem, you have to take in the whole truth, and you then have to admit nobody’s hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree. I look at this, and I think back, “What could I have done during my presidency to move this forward — as hard as I tried, and I’ve got the scars to prove it.”

“But there’s a part of me that’s still saying, well, “Was there something else I could have done?” That’s the conversation we should be having.”

“Not just looking backward, but looking forward. And that can’t happen if we are confining ourselves to our outrage.”

“I would rather see you out there talking to people, including people who you disagree with.”

‘If you genuinely want to change thin, then you’ve got to figure out how to speak to somebody on the other side, and listen to them, and understand what they are talking about, and not dismiss it. Because you can’t save that child without their help. Not in this situation.”

Obama’s strategy is consistent with how he has viewed the Middle East during his term. He draws a false moral distinction between the premeditated and extremely violent killing of 1,400 Israelis and the “occupation” of the West Bank, which is there only because the Palestinian Authority won’t accept peace talks with Israel. The occupation does not exist in Gaza.

His adoption of a post-modern perspective, which maintains that there are multiple realities rather than just one, minimizes the depravity of Hamas’s practice of genocidal terror to the level of one viewpoint among many.

As Breitbart noted: Obama’s reaction to the terror attacks was similar to 2015, when he reacted to the violence of the so-called “Islamic State,” which had published a video of a Jordanian pilot being burned alive inside a cage, by arguing that medieval Christians had been just as violent during the Crusades.

Obama’s callousness allowed ISIS to develop into a terrorist organization that is both evil and despotic.

Obama faced criticism on X last week when a letter advising Israel to exercise caution in their continuing battle with Hamas was made public.

The letter started off by expressing support for Israel but soon turned around to caution Israel about its self-defense plans.

Obama stated earlier this month in a statement:

“As I stated in an earlier post, Israel has a right to defend its citizens against such wanton violence, and I fully support President Biden’s call for the United States to support our long-time ally in going after Hamas, dismantling its military capabilities, and facilitating the safe return of hundreds of hostages to their families.”

“But even as we support Israel, we should also be clear that how Israel prosecutes this fight against Hamas matters,” Obama said.

“Still, the world is watching closely as events in the region unfold, and any Israeli military strategy that ignores the human costs could ultimately backfire.”
