Incentivizing Terrorism: CBS Hails Ireland, Spain, Norway Recognizing Palestinian State

News & Politics

CBS Mornings host Gayle King and foreign correspondent Imtiaz Tyab could hardly contain their excitement as Spain, Norway, and Ireland announced on Wednesday they will recognize a Palestinian state. The duo brought all the positive adjective from “major” to “very big” to “enormous” to “significant,” but absent from the conversation was even the smallest suggestion that the three countries were incentivizing more terrorism.

King kicked things off by reporting “We have a major development this morning related to the war in Gaza. Three European governments, all U.S. allies, say they will recognize a Palestinian state next Tuesday. Now, as you know Palestinians have wanted this for decades. Imtiaz Tyab is following this in East Jerusalem and has the latest on it. Imtiaz, this is a very big deal. Can you help us understand the significance of this?”

Ireland is not an ally of the U.S., at least not in the treaty sense that the other two are, but that aside, Tyab began by claiming, “it’s an enormous deal for these three European countries to do so and as you can imagine Israel has reacted pretty furiously to the move, and their decision to formally recognize a Palestinian state, so angry it’s ordered back its ambassadors to Norway and Ireland and has called the plan, and I’m and quoting here, ‘a distorted step,’ as the fighting in Gaza rages on a warning now to our viewers, some of the images in this report are quite distressing.”

That was the closest Tyab came to giving the Israeli perspective. Sure, he said they considered to it to be “distorted,” but he never said why. Hamas attacked Israel on October 7 in one of the worst terrorist attacks in world history and the worst crime against the Jewish people since the Holocaust and Dubin, Madrid, and Oslo—two of which were neutral during World War II— responded by rewarding the perpetrators. It tells the Palestinians that the way to achieve their goals is through more violence.

The terrorist-enabling trio, however, thinks Israel is the one that needs to be pressured as Tyab reported, “Ireland’s Taoiseach, Simon Harris, made the announcement alongside the Spanish and Norwegian prime ministers, the move is both rare and significant, only a handful of European countries already recognize a Palestinian state and the three leaders said they hope others will follow as part of global pressure to push Israel to accept a political process that could end the fighting in Gaza. 

After further reports on “more violence and more death,” Tyab returned to the essentially and unwittingly undermine everything he and King previously said, “Now, despite the move this morning by Ireland, Norway and Spain, most other European nations still believe recognition of a Palestinian state should only come as part of a long-term negotiated two-state solution to the conflict, a position also held by the U.S.”

The troublemaking trifecta will not bring peace, but they will bring more terrorism and it is to CBS’s great shame they could not report on that.

Here is a transcript for the May 22 show:

GAYLE KING: We have a major development this morning related to the war in Gaza. Three European governments, all U.S. allies, say they will recognize a Palestinian state next Tuesday. Now, as you know, Palestinians have wanted this for decades. Imtiaz Tyab is following this in East Jerusalem and has the latest on it. Imtiaz, this is a very big deal. Can you help us understand the significance of this?

IMTIAZ TYAB: Gayle, it’s an enormous deal for these three European countries to do so and as you can imagine Israel has reacted pretty furiously to the move, and their decision to formally recognize a Palestinian state, so angry it’s ordered back its ambassadors to Norway and Ireland and has called the plan, and I’m and quoting here, “a distorted step,” as the fighting in Gaza rages on a warning now to our viewers, some of the images in this report are quite distressing.

SIMON HARRIS: Today, Ireland, Norway and Spain are announcing that we recognize the state of Palestine.

TYAB: Ireland’s Taoiseach, Simon Harris, made the announcement alongside the Spanish and Norwegian prime ministers, the move is both rare and significant, only a handful of European countries already recognize a Palestinian state and the three leaders said they hope others will follow as part of global pressure to push Israel to accept a political process that could end the fighting in Gaza. 

At the Kamal Adwan Hospital, in the northern Jabalia refugee camp, 150 patients and medics had to run for their lives after the Israeli military carried out repeated strikes nearby, one intensive care patient was pushed through the ruined street still in his hospital bed. 

To the south, in Deir al-Balah, more violence and more death. A CBS News team was at the Al-Aqsa Hospital after the Israelis killed more than 12, including small children and this infant, removed from his dead mother’s womb, not even given the chance to breathe his first breath. 

The sharp increase in violence comes as Israel continues to widen its offensive in Rafah, a U.S. official has said Israeli leaders have quote “addressed many of President Biden’s concerns” about a full scale ground invasion of the southern city. 

But the White House has yet to signal a support for full scale assault on Gaza’s only relatively intact city. 

Now, despite the move this morning by Ireland, Norway and Spain, most other European nations still believe recognition of a Palestinian state should only come as part of a long-term negotiated two-state solution to the conflict, a position also held by the U.S. Nate?
