Diana Bhutto, "human rights" lawyer and former PLO adviser. July 10,2014

While CNN is not known as being “fair and balanced” on the Arab-Israeli conflict as a general matter, one of its reporters, Jake Tapper, did a pretty amazing job when interviewing a Palestinian Arab “human rights” lawyer and former PLO adviser, Diana Bhutto, on two fronts.

One, Tapper repeatedly called her on the fabrications she uttered in response to his questions, but two, he revealed her to be a completely – some might say pathological – straight-faced liar about facts which are verifiably confirmed. Over and over, in just a short interview, Bhutto lied and on each point claimed Tapper was racist for stating the truth about what Palestinian Arabs do.


Watch the clip, then go to just some of the links to see how completely the woman lied.

Now take a look at the proof:

Here is a video extolling the love of martyrdom and praising the drinking of Jewish blood:

And here is one naming their culture of death:

Here is just one example of many proving Palestinian Arabs teach their children to love death:

And here is the clip Tapper referenced of the Hamas leader calling on Gazans to remain in their homes even when the Israel Defense Force sends a message to leave because bombing will take place there. Bhutto claimed she did not see or know of this:

  1. If she is a muslim she follows the Koran. If she follows the Koran she’ll lie. It tells its followers that lying to the infidel (you and me) is fine and dandy. As long as what they (the muslims) win in the end, that’s all that counts.

  2. True Jay, he was on the right side but he could have been way more demanding of explanations. Especially when she said, the rockets fired toward Israel are harmless since they are archaic. I would have asked, “would you find it reprehensible is they were dangerous?” another point; twice she said she never saw the videos where Hamas is encouraging human shield. Really!!?? she never saw the videos and is not aware of this sick method? it is all over the net… my thoughts….shabat chalom to you.

  3. She kept saying she hadn’t seen the video telling the people to stay in their homes DESPITE IDF warnings to leave.
    The winning part was that she admitted it WAS reprehensible IF there Were such a tape (which everyone knows there is) . She fully showed herself to be a liar – so what else is new??? And what does it give us???
    Another Muslim liar??? Outed for once?? On national TV. Feels good!!!

  4. Wait…
    How come she doesn’t have her Islamic clothes on?
    And how come she doesn’t have her face and hair covered as required by Islam?

    And I bet she won’t move to Iraq!
    And I bet she doesn’t speak out against all of the atrocities committed by ISIS on Islamic women in Iraq!

  5. 5774, #TAMMUZ 13 #Shabbat Shalom to My Beloved Choosen People of the Nation of ISRAEL RIGHT NOW. PUNTO.

    Diana Buttu
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    In a November 2012 op-ed for the Globe and Mail, Buttu called Gaza “an open-air prison” and charged that “Israel’s latest bombing campaign…does not distinguish civilian from combatant, adult from child.” She accused Israel of setting “policies on the minimum number of calories needed to prevent malnutrition” and of strictly limiting Gaza’s access to the sea.[18]

    Buttu reiterated in a January 2013 interview that the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations, both before, during, and after her involvement, had failed “primarily because we had two very unequal parties.” In the same interview she expressed the desire that Mahmoud Abbas would “sign on to the International Criminal Court,” “hold Israel accountable for the settlement construction and expansion,” and “declare this apartheid.”[19]

    In a July 2014 interview with CNN, Buttu clearly demonstrated a lack of knowledge of facts on the ground, calling into question her integrity and ability as both a commentator and negotiator in the conflict. When questioned about the widely condemned Hamas tactic of using (and encouraging) human shields, she said it was not true, would be a war crime if it was, and that the simple question was a racist slur. Tepper replied that CNN had two senior Hamas officials on tape making calls for their own civilians to put themselves in danger as human shields, and that Buttu was denying proven facts. [20]

    Criticisms from CAMERA[edit]
    In 2005 Ricki Hollander of CAMERA, under the title “Countering Propaganda: Focus on Diana Buttu,” charged that Buttu “sidesteps or reframes challenging questions to bring the discussion to her own turf” and “glibly dispenses figures to bolster her points.” She also accused Butto of “invert[ing] Palestinian and Women in Green (Women for Israel’s Tomorrow)
    li actions,” insisting, for example, “that the Palestinians never rejected a valid Israeli peace offer, but that Israel has repeatedly repulsed Arab peace
    proposals.” Hollander refuted in detail several claims by Buttu, for example that from 1997 to 2000, “not a single Israeli died of a suicide bombing inside Israel” and that Israel “ethnically cleansed” 75 percent of Palestinians in 1948.[21]

    In November 2012, two writers for CAMERA, Samantha Rose Mandeles and Aviva Slomich, detailed what they considered “lies” in a Harvard lecture by Buttu. “In her telling,” they wrote, “Qassam rockets don’t have explosive heads and cause no casualties in Israel; Grad rockets were not fired into Israel in the years 2008 or 2009; Richard Goldstone hardly retracted any portion of his eponymous report; and not one Israeli was murdered by a suicide bombing in Israel from the years 1997-2000.”[22]

  6. Here is another female, Arab ‘lawyer’ calling for Arab men to sexually harass Israeli women and justifying the rape of Israeli women by Arabs as a from of ‘resistance.’

    Interestingly, at one points she points out that their are no sexual harassment laws in Arab countries, therefore ‘if Arab women are fair game, Israeli women should be, too.’ I would bet you 100 camels that this women has been a victim of sexual abuse. She has no outlet for her anger or revenge, and which she now projects on to Israelis.



    Hoffer said in a later interview that

    A world that did not lift a finger when Hitler was wiping out six million Jewish men, women, and children is now saying that the Jewish state of Israel will not survive if it does not come to terms with the Arabs.

    No one in this universe has the right and the competence to tell Israel what it has to do in order to survive. On the contrary, it is Israel that can tell us what to do. It can tell us that we shall not survive if we do not cultivate and celebrate courage, if we coddle traitors and deserters, bargain with terrorists, court enemies, and scorn friends.

    President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry should heed these words – and stop kowtowing to terrorists.

    They’d also do well to leave Israel alone – Israel remains the only country in the world that suffers universal criticism and condemnation.

    There is a cry of outrage all over the world when people died in Vietnam or when two Blacks were executed in Rhodesia. But, when Hitler slaughtered Jews no one demonstrated against him. The Swedes, who were ready to break off diplomatic relations with America because of what we did in Vietnam, did not let out a peep when Hitler was slaughtering Jews. They sent Hitler choice iron ore, and ball bearings, and serviced his troops in Norway. The Jews are alone in the world.

    Indeed, in February 2014, in Central Africa, 800,000 Muslims have fled their homes, and an entire nation’s Muslims are endangered. It’s not news – yet every time the Jews lift a finger to protect themselves, the world goes nuts. As it was in 1968 when Hoffer wrote this article it is in the year 2014, when the world endlessly condemns and criticizes Israel – the Jews are alone in the world.

  8. This is why the palestinians get no sympathy from the world.Because of liars like her.And also the fact that the terrorist cowards hide behind women and children and never show their faces in a straight up fight.You cant respect that at all.
