Israel-Hamas War: Piers Morgan vs Bassem Youssef on Palestine’s Treatment
By Piers Morgan Uncensored
Piers Morgan Uncensored is joined by Egyptian comedian Bassem Youssef and later on by co-founder of the Daily Wire, Jeremy Boreing, for a heated and emotive debate on the historical treatment of Palestine during their conflict with Israel and whether Israel’s decision to bomb Gaza in an attempt to get rid of Hamas is justified and proportionate after the attacks on October 7th.
Bassem condemns the terrorist organisation Hamas and tries to explain that people have been desensitised to accept that civilians dying is an inevitability of war.
Piers then suggests he doesn’t know what the “proportionate response” to a terrorist attack of Hamas’s scale would be. Bassem responds by referencing a graph that shows the total amount of deaths in the conflict prior to the attacks and questions the Palestinian killings in the West Bank, which has never been occupied by Hamas fighters.
Bassem then mocks Ben Shapiro for his public stance on Israel defending themselves, questioning how an occupier can be defending themselves. Shapiro’s friend and colleague Jeremy is then invited by Piers to debate Bassem’s criticisms.
Here’s what others had to say:
As an American citizen, this guy cleared a lot of things better than any tv show or news or politician
As a Bosnian, who lived through war from 1992 to 1995, knowing what occupation means, embargo on weapons, eating only rice for days, waiting in lines for a water when sniper can hit you anytime… counting dead…we deeply feel pain of Palestinian people. At that time Palestinians organized themselves and all working people sent us 1% of their salaries when even themselves didnt have much. Mr. Bassem Thank you for being the voice of Palestinians.
As a Venezuelan citizen, I want to give thanks to Bassem for denouncing what needs to be denounced but not budging from calling out the horrible and unfair reality that Palestinians are in, and have been for ages. They are in a forgotten pit of quicksand inside a cage. I could not imagine living through that. And the media has done a great job at making us not feel for any of it for a ver long time. Out of sight out of mind.
As a Canadian, I am so thankful to you. You used irony to exercise the common sense in all of us. This is the way to open peoples’ eyes. Well-done
As an american, I thank Bassem for clarifying the situation and sending the real message to the world, not what others fake.. Free Palestine !
As a Palestinian living in diaspora, thank you so much Bassem! It’s heartwarming to see the people in the comments all over the world finally opening their eyes. It’s like being seen and heard for the first time in 75 years since the Israeli occupation, sending all love and appreciation.
“And when they are almost extinct, you start feeling sorry for them, you know.. like animals!”
That hit me in the heart.
As an Indian, you made a huge difference by clarifying things we thought were difficult and complex and in reality IT IS NOT thank you baseem.
As a Brazilian, I was deeply moved by Bassem’s attempt to express, through humor, his grief and his outrage at the senseless murders of thousands, by governments who are clearly interested in deploying a war of conquer, and that have zero regard for human lives, both from the millions of innocent Palestinians and the Israeli hostages.
As an Iranian, I was moved by the deep pain behind the brilliant dark humor of Bassem. This is the voice of real people, real humans, that are being crushed by the voice of politicians that refuse to hear us. Thank you Bassem. Thank you Piers.
As a swedish citizen I believe this is one of the most game changing interviews of all time. In 50 years kids will look back in this in history class. Thankyou for telling people how it really is. I pray for all civilians dead on both sides but Israel needs to be stopped. If it wasnt for the apartheid regime there would be no Hamas. Dont focus on the symptoms.
As an Ethiopian citizen i thank you Mr Bassam for this legendary interview! 🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸 all the free people stand with Palestine.
As asian people, I thanks to Bassem for his way to handle this interview. He give us another perspective about western double standard and israel propaganda. I will share this video to as many to my friend and family.
As an Australian, I have to admit you have opened my eyes to the truth that Australian media is hindering. Thank you Bassem.
As a human being, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for showing us the truth in a world where the truth is absent and where lies, media deception, and double standards are widespread.
As an Iraqi-Australian, thank you Mr Youssef for speaking out our pain to the world and thanks to all the people in the world standing out for Palestinian and their right for their land, to live and children can have future.
As a Palestinian, I thank Bassem for speaking the language that suits their hypocrisy of the media and politicians and for delivering reaching out the truth to millions.
I hope one day we would all say “As a citizens of this world” without borders without dividing.
Freedom for Palestine.
Como brasileiro, posso dizer que finalmente vi uma resposta adequada para as pessoas que defendem os ataques contra Gaza. Não há nenhum debate possivel com essa gente. Resta apenas jogar a verdade na cara delas e expor o ridiculi das suas alegações.
As a brazilian citizen I thank you for telling the truth in front of about 15 million people, Mr Bassam Youssef.
As a Chinese, thank you for Bassem for giving such intelligent views to the world.
As an Uzbek citizen, I truly happy for this interview, so someone with clear mind even he is comedian, explained in a simple way, what is actually happening and who is civilian in reality.
As an Egyptian I’m so so proud of bassem I used to watch him back when I was 4 years old but now I’m old enough to understand what’s going on around me but he really helped a lot of people understand what actually going on.
As an Algerian citizen, I’m so glad that people from All over the world are starting to wake up and acknowledging the truth which is Palestinians are being oppressed for the past 75 years and they must get their land and freedom back!
Thank you Mr bassem Youssef
As a Yemeni, I want to thank Bassem for giving such a compelling satirical showcase of the Palestinian plight, you truly did them justice. As Jon Stewart inspired you, ya Bassem, with the one episode you saw of him in Egypt, I think you have inspired many others with this interview to be apart of truth telling in the media via satirical means! Much love ya baasha!
As a moroccan, I greatly appreciate your brilliant way of telling the facts and the truth about what our brothers and sisters in Palestine are going through since forever. Free Palestine
