Fusion's Jorge Ramos on what he learned covering the 2016 race

Is Hamas the same as ISIS?

Palestinian Ambassador to the U.S. Maen Areikat tells Fusion’s Jorge Ramos it is “absurd” to compare Hamas to ISIS. He responds to comments from Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer, and says that “instead of trying to compare Palestinian factions to these forces of darkness, the Israeli ambassador should have maybe told his audience that Israel will consider ending its brutal military occupation of the Palestinian people and the denial of the Palestinians for their human rights.”
