Palestinian, Egyptian Commentators Argue about Gaza War

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has translated a recent TV debate between Dr. Muhammad Al-Shtayyeh, a Fatah leader in Cairo, and Ashraf Abu Al-Houl, deputy editor-in-chief of the Egyptian Al-Ahram newspaper.
 
The two argued over the achievements that Hamas had claimed following the Gaza war.

The debate was broadcast on the Egyptian ON TV channel on August 28. While Shtayyeh said that “the victory can be attributed to the Palestinian people”, Al-Houl blasted Hamas and said the group gave justification for Israel to attack by kidnapping and murdering Israeli teenagers Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Sha’ar.
 
Al-Houl also said that Hamas had humiliated Egypt by refusing its ceasefire proposal and asking for another country to mediate in the ceasefire talks.
