Confused Hamas leader posts pro-Israel cartoon

Basem Naim posted Israeli cartoonist's work, but despite efforts to point out his mistake, he stuck to his guns

A clearly confused Hamas leader today defended his posting of a caricature by Israeli cartoonist Vladik Sandler that ridicules the immorality of the UN’s anti-Israel bias.

I tried to point out Dr. Basem Naim’s confusion:

Naim doubled down, insisting he knew what he was doing:

Well, after doubling down, at least the terrorist leader finally admitted his mistake.


Who is Basem Naim, anyway?

When Hamas made him health minister in 2007, he promptly fired the directors of Gaza’s main hospitals.

And he’s the same terrorist leader (spelled Bassem Naim) who was cited as a source by the UN’s recent health report on Palestinians.
