Bill Maher Is Disappointed in Barack Obama Over Israel Comments

Bill Maher came out squarely on the side of Israel since the barbaric Hamas terrorist attack of October 7. And now he is criticizing none other than Barack Obama for what the former president said about the attack that seemed to accuse Israel of being guilty of similar crimes against Palestinians. (Spoiler alert: It’s not. Israel has not now, nor has it ever been guilty of targeting innocent civilians.)

The first thing that needs to be remembered here is that on October 7 Hamas terrorists murdered more than 1,200 innocent people, including entire families. They even burned people alive, including babies and shot civilians who were helpless to defend themselves.

On that day – and since – Hamas launched thousands of rockets indiscriminately into Israeli cities with the intent of murdering more innocent people.

Even Arab-Israelis were murdered by Hamas on October 7 and Hamas rockets could strike Arab towns.

So, Friday night, on his program Real Time, Bill Maher said, “I must say I am struggling with people’s moral equivalency. I mean, Barack Obama, who has rarely disappointed me, did so this week.”

“His statement, I mean, it’s not a horrible statement,” added Maher, “but he said, ‘If you want to solve the problem, then you have to take in the whole truth and then you have to admit nobody’s hands are clean.’ Literally that’s true, of course. But just giving two examples where this is I don’t think a helpful statement at this moment. First of all, the attack was only a month ago. A more savage attack that we’ve ever seen in reverse. There’s a big difference between collateral damage and what Hamas did.”

For the record, on the Save America podcast Barack Obama said, “What Hamas did was horrific, and there is no justification for it. And what is also true is that the occupation, and what’s happening to Palestinians, is unbearable. If you want to solve the problem, then you have to take in the whole truth. And then you have to admit nobody’s hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree.”

The former President went on to say, “All of this is taking place against the backdrop of decades of failure to achieve a durable peace for both Israelis and Palestinians,” as possibly an attempt to mitigate his words.

But Barack Obama failed to make any reference to the blame that Hamas holds for the failure to achieve peace. It began in the 1990s, as the Oslo Accords were first being implemented, when Hamas increased the level of terrorist violence to one never seen before with heinous acts like suicide bombings on buses that killed numerous innocent people over the years.

Then, after Israel withdrew unilaterally from Gaza in 2005 – Lock, stock and barrel – dismantling settlements and forcing thousands of Israelis to move elsewhere, Hamas took over all of Gaza and turned it into a new base for terrorism. Israel has now seen 18 years of rockets fired from Gaza at civilians and cross border raids.

Bill Maher was the one to point out the fact that Israel cares more for the welfare of the people in Gaza than Hamas.

“The people in Hamas who kill their own people,” he said, “think they’re doing them a favor because they’re becoming martyrs. That’s a different kind of situation to have to deal with that Israel has that most people don’t.”
