      I wish everyone spouting their anti Israeli vitriol would take the same advice and stick to whatever their expertise is unless their expertise is modern history and politics in the Levant

      1. Dick

        if that’s your advice to everyone else, then shut your hole about anything that isn’t directly related to your own field of work/study/unemployment, if neither of the preceding.

        Yeah, “stick the rugby old timer” is a well known anti-Semitic slur. How dare you.

        cool – i have an honours degree in history, so that qualifies my disgust at israeli tactics then.

    He’s right Israeli can’t win support by military action, but they should have learnt that a long time ago.

    What’s inaccurate about what he’s said? Absolutely nothing. He’s not even promoting one side or the other.

    How about saying something positive about something every once in a while. Please.

      I can’t wait for the National Gallery to open after its refurbishment. There. Positive.

      You kiddin? This is Broadsheet, the centre for insecure middle class negativity.
      Have a nice sunny day y’all.

    He’s dead right in what he said….Hamas know this and use it to their advantage to the detriment of innocent Israeli’s and Palestinians, the sooner people realise that Hamas are absolute scum the better

    1. Nigel

      Everyone knows Hamas are scum. Knowing they are scum is not the problem. Empowering scum through counterproductive military actions with horrifically high civilian casualties is the problem.

      1. LiamZero

        Exactly, Nigel. I don’t understand why some idiots think that by condemning Israel’s attacks you are automatically supporting Hamas.
        Oh wait, I do: it’s because they are idiots.

      Hamas are scum, equally Israel’s the same. They are now actively targeting civilians. The death toll is now 518 Palestinians, almost 100 of those children, while Israel has lost 18 soldiers and 2 citizens.

      1. munkifisht

        Or maybe, like anyone who calls out Israel for war crimes and illegal occupation, that’s just me, “spouting [my] anti Israeli vitriol”.

        Topical Joke

        Q: Whats the difference between the Israelis and the Palestinians?

        A: The Israelis use missiles to protect innocent civilians. The Palestinians use innocent civilians to protect missiles.

      2. Sidewinder

        That’s both unhelpful and untrue. Israel has mandatory military service. There are many Israeli victims of Israeli warfare, they’re just not fatalities.

    In fairness, though, this is George Hook. Nothing he says should be listened to, never mind considered. The truth is: George very likely doesn’t actually know what that even means – and I’d bet that’s something he overheard earlier today and thought it sounded clever. And that’s probably not exactly what the other person said either. I know the man. He’s a dope.

      1. Sysiphus

        I think the former, as he says he doen’t drink…. and don’t think he’d lie……..?

    Don’t forget we’re talking about the man who once said, live on air, “Let’s just call a spade a spade” while discussing what the politically correct term for a non-national was.

      When you find yourself agreeing with hook it is time to introduce your belt, your neck and the back of a door to each other and hutchence your way out of this world.

  7. Clampers Outside!

    Israeli Ambassador to Ireland just used the same line as George in an interview with O’Rourke on RTE Radio1 …is Mr Hook going viral? Who did he steal it off?

    1. ahyeah

      Not at all surprised. See my comment above…he’s a Class A idiot. Has actually been known to take out a pen and paper and write down what he thinks are clever or insightul remarks he overhears, and then regurgitate them on radio and present them as his own thoughts. And invariably he gets them wrong – make no sense but George is delighted with himself all the same. Just don’t mind what he says. He’s the greatest con job in this country. And an unpleasant bully.
