Tensions flare when Hannity repeatedly asks Palestinian guest: 'Is Hamas a terrorist organization?'

Tensions were high on Thursday’s edition of Hannity, as host Sean Hannity repeatedly pressed a Palestinian guest, Yousef Munayyer, over whether Hamas is a terrorist organization. Munayyer refused to answer the question several times, which prompted Hannity to dismiss the executive director of the Jerusalem Fund.

“You had your chance,” Hannity said to Munayyer. “You didn’t say Hamas is a terrorist organization. Goodbye.”

Watch the segment courtesy of Fox News below:

“This is the best thing that you need to do… [to] anybody who is anti-Israel, just ask them a few questions. The biggest one they will never answer is: Is Hamas a terrorist organization.” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It is a known, recognized terrorist organization. It is an organization that says… in their charter, they desire to kill all the Jews and destroy Israel, wipe it off the map. So it's a really easy answer… [but] they will never answer that question. Never.”

Using the logic of Simon Sinek – the author of Start With Why – Glenn proceeded to demonstrate the fundamental difference between Israel and Hamas. It all comes back to a simple question: Why do you exist?

Below is an edited transcript of the conversation:

GLENN: Now, let me switch back to Palestine, and the Palestinian argument versus the Israeli argument. This is why you will never have peace – because Hamas will never answer their why. You will never get Hamas to say, ‘Why are you sitting here with the Israelis and you want peace?’ ‘Well, we want our kids to stop being bombed.’ Okay, so the way to do that is to live side-by-side with Israel. ‘Do you recognize Israel as a state?’ ‘Well, you don't have to answer that.’

Well, yes, you do, because your charter is your why. Why does Hamas exist? In their charter, they exist to wipe Israel off the face of the map… And nobody wants to talk about that. But that's the most important thing. I don't know if you saw what the Ayatollah Khamenei said in Iran, but Iran said yesterday, ‘The only way we'll bring peace is to wipe out Israel and kill all the Israelis.’ That's their why.

Now, you can go a level deeper on Iran’s why. Their why is because of the Twelfth Imam. They believe they are commanded by God to bring chaos to the world, to return the Twelfth Imam, their savior. He can only return at a time of great bloodshed and great strife and great chaos. So that's what they are doing. Unless you know what the why is from Iran, you will never be able to deal with them.

Same thing with Hamas. And the way you get to it is to ask a few simple questions. ‘Does Israel have a right to exist as a state?’ I don't answer to the United Nations. I don't like the United Nations, but the left does. Israel is the only state ever created by the United Nations.

PAT: Wasn't the only state they tried to create, however, because they also tried to create a Palestine for the Palestinians. But again, they don't answer the why of ‘why did you refuse the state in the first place?’ ‘Because we don't accept that Israel has any right to exist.’ They will not answer that question. They will not go there. And no one ever asks them anymore.

GLENN: Do you have the Hamas charter?

STU: Yeah, it is not exactly calling for destruction of Israel, I will say. It says, ‘Hamas has been looking to implement Allah's promise, whatever time it might take. The prophet prayer and peace be upon him said, ‘The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them. Until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees will cry, oh, Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me come and kill him.’

So it’s not the destruction of Israel, as much as killing all the Jews. However, they do end it with: ‘This will not apply to the gharqad,’ – which is a Jewish tree. So there will be Jewish trees remaining in this world, just not Jewish people.

GLENN: That's their charter. That's like our U.S. Constitution. That's like ‘we hold these truths to be self-evident.’ That's what that is. Hamas says we hold these truths to be self-evident: The Jews will hide behind the rocks and the treed and the trees and rocks will cry out and say, ‘Hey, right here. Kill him.’ That's the truth they hold self-evident.

If that's your self-evident truth, ask any American. When we are in a war. And you say, ‘Why, do you believe this? Why are you fighting?’ ‘Because we hold these truths to be self-evident, that hall men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.’ That's why I do what I do for my country because I believe those things. Ask that of a Palestinian supporter. ‘Why do you do these things? Why are you fighting?’ If you're a Hamas member, ‘Because Allah said there's going to come a time where even the trees and rocks will turn over the Jews for us to kill. So we know it's right to kill all the Jews.’

So it's not about free Palestine. It is about killing all the Jews. It is not me saying that. That's them saying that. Hamas, answer the question: What truth do you hold self-evident? That's it.

Now, I don't think all Palestinians believe that. I don't think all Palestinians, all Arabs, I don't think everybody believes that. I'm telling you, that's what Hamas believes. That's why Sean Hannity was right. ‘Is it a terrorist organization?’ ‘I don't need to answer that.’ Yes, you do. Here is their charter… And it is not just their charter. They're quoting from the Koran. So if you are a Palestinian, if you are a Muslim of that ilk that doesn’t believe yes, this is what Allah said, this is what he means, kill all the Jews. They can't say that. They will be killed. They will have betrayed Allah. There will be a fatwa on them.

That's why they will never answer that question. That's why good Muslims have been crying out to us, ‘Please help us stand up because we don't find that self-evident.’

It’s no secret that Glenn has a less-than-optimistic view of emerging AI and when you look at the horrifying new technologies that utilize the power of AI it’s hard not to agree.

Here’s a look at 7 new AI technologies that will HORRIFY you:

AI Brainwave Monitoring

Earlier this year during the World Economic Forum's annual meeting, Nita Robinson, a professor of law and philosophy at Duke, presented a video that depicted a “hypothetical” situation where a person's brainwaves are monitored by their earbuds, which have the ability to record brainwaves, decode them with AI, and then send brain reports to their boss and are accessible by government agencies. When the video ends, Robinson makes the terrifying announcement that this AI technology already exists! It's just a matter of time before it's implemented.

AI Voice Cloning

Last month, Glenn covered a terrifying story involving a scammer who created an AI clone of a child's voice in order to scam money out of her terrified parents. While this might sound advanced, a quick Google search reveals that this technology is remarkably accessible and is easily able to replicate the voice of anyone. Imagine the havoc that could be inflicted on your life with an AI clone of your voice.

Like something out of Star Trek, a team of researchers at the University of Texas at Austin developed a new AI that is able to decode brain activity and produce a transcript of a person's thoughts with reasonable accuracy, all without the need for implants or other invasive measures. While the researchers assure us that the technology has major limitations, including the need to train this AI extensively on each subject's brain, it’s only a matter of time before the AI is able to overcome these limitations, and it may be sooner than we would like…

Snapchat's new AI “Friend”

Image of My AI's contact on Snapchat


In April the popular social media messaging app Snapchat released a controversial new feature known as “My AI”—an AI chatbot powered by ChatGPT. The new feature acts much like other chatbots. It can answer questions, converse with the user, and offer recommendations. However, unlike other chatbots, it is integrated in such a way that it can be difficult to distinguish from a human user, complete with a customizable avatar and name. Many parents are worried that the friendly appearance of “My AI” will make it hard for their teens to differentiate the bot from a real human. Moreover, the only way to remove the bot is by paying for Snapchat’s premium service, giving parents little recourse for protecting their children.

AI "Big Brother"

In a recent TED talk, former Apple Designer Imran Chaudhri introduced the concept for a new wearable AI device connected to a camera and microphone, enabling the AI to hear and see everything you do. Chaudhri assures us that the device is “privacy-first and safe,” but how safe would you feel with an all-seeing AI accompanying you all day every day?

AI Meddling with Elections

One terrifying potential use for AI could be meddling with elections. The last few years have seen a decline in faith in our elections, and the emergence of AI will only serve to muddy the waters. As previously mentioned, AI voice clones are here and have been proven to have the ability to create compelling facsimiles of political figures. Combined with AI image technology the threat of an AI-generated scandal is high.

If you want to learn more about AI interference with elections you can watch this clip from the Glenn Beck Program.

AI Dating

Another disturbing development is the creation of “Dating AIs”—AI chatbots designed as a replacement for a boyfriend or girlfriend. There is already a variety of options available with prices ranging from free all the way up to $1 a minute, like some sort of dystopian "call girl." There are already reports of people developing genuine emotional attachments to these bots and others who have married or have tried to marry their artificial lovers.

Global ESG investments PLUNGED 76 percent with NEGATIVE returns on investment

SOPA Images / Contributor | Getty Images

Glenn has been one of the most outspoken critics of the use of ESG by globalist elites to force businesses to comply with their woke agenda. It turns out, not only is ESG bad political practice—it's bad for your wallet too.

Global Investments in ESG Funds PLUNGED 76 percent globally in 2022 from $157.3 billion to $649.1 billion in 2021, with a 20 percent decrease in the U.S. ALONE. This marked the lowest annual net inflow for ESG funds since $69 billion in 2018.

The downturn in ESG investment is largely due to the concerted effort led against ESG led by Glenn and government officials like Ron DeSantis and his anti-ESG 14-state coalition. Thanks to Glenn and DeSantis, an increasing number of states are barring their governments from taking ESG into consideration when determining their investment recipients for state pension and retirement funds. This not only protects critical American industries like oil and gas, but moreover, it protects the First Amendment rights of business owners who don't want to conform to the Left's woke environmentalist and LGBTQ+ standards.

Thanks to Glenn and DeSantis, an increasing number of states are barring their governments from taking ESG into consideration.

However, the massive plunge in ESG investment isn't only attributed to the political pushback against the practice: it also isn't yielding investors the return on investment they were hoping for. In fact, the main ESG funds have a NEGATIVE return on investment.

ESG funds were hit hard by falling equities. One of the largest ESG funds int the U.S., Parnassus Core Equity Fund (PRBLX), fell 26 PERCENT in 2022. This fund performed nearly six percent worse than the S&P 500, which fell 19.44 percent within the same period. Similarly, iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF (ESGU) fell 20 percent, and Vanguard ESG U.S. Stock ETF (ESGV) plummeted 24 percent.

Even the Harvard Business Review admitted investors in ESG have "not fared well":

ESG funds certainly perform poorly in financial terms. [...] Although the highest rated funds in terms of sustainability certainly attracted more capital than the lowest rated funds, none of the high sustainability funds outperformed any of the lowest rated funds [bolded added]. That result might be expected, and it is possible that investors would be happy to sacrifice financial returns in exchange for better ESG performance.

The Harvard Business Review went on to say that ESG funds don't even benefit the environmental and social causes they tout to defend. In fact, when comparing environmental and social compliance between ESG and non-ESG funds, the
"ESG portfolios had worse compliance record for both labor and environmental rules" than their non-ESG competitors.

Let that sink in. ESG funds not only financially underperformed when compared to their non-ESG competitors. They failed to secure the very environmental and social compliance that is central to their original purpose. Missionally, practically, and financially, ESG failure is astounding.

As Glenn has long warned, the only thing that investment firms and governments should be taking into consideration regarding YOUR money is how they can get the best possible return on YOUR investment. We are seeing the detrimental consequences of what happens when woke ideology becomes the basis of investment rather than the recipient's monetary value.

The only thing that governments should take into consideration regarding YOUR money is how to get the best possible return on YOUR investment.

If political conviction alone isn't enough to persuade the general public to ditch ESG, maybe their hurting pursestrings will.

Glenn will show how ESG is being used to further globalist elites' agendas in the second installment of his Great Reset series, Dark Future.To make sure you're caught up and to learn more about ESG, enter your email below to get chapter one of Glenn's first Great Reset book sent straight to your inbox.

You've probably noticed that Glenn is FED UP.

He is FED UP with the crimes that our political elite can get away with. And NO ONE is keeping them accountable! This corruption goes all the way up to the Presidency. Over and over again, the American people have seen headlines of the Biden family's illicit business dealings and crimes both domestic and abroad, yet they ALWAYS get a free pass from the media, and Republicans who promise to hold them accountable, DON'T.

Are you FED UP too?

Glenn laid out the ENTIRE CASE against the "Biden crime family," detailing EVERY crime allegedly committed by the Bidens, going city by city, state by state, country by country.

But we can't stop there.

Now it's up to YOU to demand that they are held responsible. Here's what to do:

  • Step 1. Watch "The Reckoning" (on YouTube or Facebook) and share it with your friends.
  • Step 2.Enter your email HERE to get access to the "Biden Crime Family Dossier" with the full list of crimes and contact information for prosecutors and attorneys general.
  • Step 3. Take action by flooding the phones and emails of the prosecutors and attorneys general in your district and demand they prosecute these crimes.
  • Step 4. Once you've contacted the offices in your relevant district, tweet @glennbeck using the hashtag #Reckoning and let us know who you contacted and whether you received a response.

Like you, Glenn is SICK AND TIRED of our government and media giving the Biden family a free pass for their blatant crimes. Together, let's do something about it.
