    NEW YORK (VINnews) — In a major diplomatic blunder which could harm Israel’s claims regarding the use of Shifa hospital as a terrorist center, former prime minister Ehud Barak admitted in a CNN interview that Israel had built the “bunkers” under the Shifa hospital.

    It seems apparent from the interview that Barak did not realize the difference between a civilian underground development which in English is called a basement, a cellar or an underground extension, and a military structure known as a ‘bunker’. Barak used the latter term in the interview, implying that Israel had developed the subterranean military bases now being used by Hamas in Gaza.

    Interviewer Christiane Amanpour was herself stunned at Barak’s revelation, asking him to repeat it again. Barak appeared to be contradicting IDF spokesman Hagari’s contention that the tunnels, with military command centers, had been built by Hamas.

    In the event, Barak’s interview was aired by CNN under the title “The bunkers under Shifa hospital were built by Israeli developers to provide more space for the hospital, when Israel ran the place decades ago.” The Arab countries seized upon Barak’s words to prove that Israel’s claims about a military command center are baseless as the tunnels and other equipment underground were built by Israel.

    Barak is a fallen hero. He was an undercover operative who risked his life in the special forces on our behalf. But since then politics and later personal grudges destroyed him.

    He should be quiet and enjoy his retirement.

    This is why it’s very important for that country to have people who know English and could speak English correctly as opposed to the people who talk Ebrew and mix it with whatever English they think they know.

    What a disaster!

    It’s sad that the crime of treason has an element of intent, so utter stupidity might be a good defense.

    Dangerous moron. It’d be one thing if he was a good sound byte but the old fool sounds like a bumbling idiot. Maybe he sounds more impressive in Hebrew. However, given the fact that in the best case scenario he doesn’t understand English (as opposed to him being a saboteur, and based on his actions prior to the 10/7 attacks, this is a very real possibility) he should definitely not be doing interviews in English. There needs to be a restraining order preventing him from speaking.

    A lot of the mess in Lebanon is Barak’s fault. Israel controlled southern Lebanon, together with Christian militias south of the Litani River until 2000. It was an excellent buffer. But then Barak pulled Israel out stabbing the Christian allies in the back and Hezbollah filled the void right up to the Israeli border and murdered the Christians.

    Did anyone hear this
    moron express sorrow over 10/7?

    No, the first time he opens his foul mouth is to cause Israel more harm.

    I don’t believe it was a faux pas. He never misses an opportunity to cause trouble.

    During the protests he was everywhere publicly threatening that blood would run.

    He needs to exit the stage and keep his mouth shut.
