Appearing on CNN Tonight, TruthRevolt Editor-In-Chief (and KTTH host) Ben Shapiro debated Haaretz columnist Peter Beinart in a showdown that turned personal.

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama stated that he had, “no sympathy for Hamas. I have great sympathy for ordinary people who are struggling within Gaza.” He also said that Hamas was acting “extraordinarily irresponsibly” by placing rockets in civilian centers. Beinart agreed with Obama: “He is exactly right. Israel does have the right to defend itself. It also needs some better guarantees against Hamas.”

Beinart then excused Hamas’ actions by blaming Israel’s treatment of Gaza:

Beinart: But ordinary Palestinians also need some relief from a blockade that has destroyed the Gazan economy and actually helped Hamas. The blockade has destroyed the independent business class in Gaza by making exports virtually impossible. It’s made it very difficult for Gazan fishermen to go a few miles out beyond the coast.
