I hope that this interview will help people that were never exposed to our point of view to be able to look at it differently.

On X, formerly Twitter; Bassem described the second interview as a “deep, calm conversation about a very complicated issue…no sound bites, no trending phrases, no attempts to score points for reach and views. Just an attempt to have our voices heard,” Youssef said.
During the second interview, Youssef’s argument was built on giving a quick overview of the history of Jewish people displacement, showing that it goes way back to early modernity in Europe and finds its climax under Hitler’s hands during the holocaust. Now Palestinians are paying the price.
They want to expell them into Egypt.

Youssef starts the interview by stating that the question of condemnation is completely useless “I condemn Hamas, you condemn Israel. Interview over. What happened? Nothing.”
Then he moved to an important point. Youssef rationalizes the reason behind why people on either of the two sides are celebrating the terror inflicted on the other. It is feeding centuries and centuries of bottled up hate, and helplessness.
He further used satire to touch on brands like McDonald’s donating to Israel.
McDonald’s are giving free meals to the Israelis. Because nothing will make you feel better after killing a bunch of Palestinian kids than a Happy Meal,” he said.
Once again, Bassem Youssef:
“McDonald's are giving free meals to the Israelis because nothing will make you feel better after killing a bunch of Palestinian kids than a happy meal.”

Bassem Youssef had undoubtedly been making the strongest statements during the current events, and all through his career as a satirical comedian. His interviews with the British broadcaster Piers Morgan are of great impact because it mediates what is continuously lost in the gap between journalism in the East and journalism in the West with regard to the Palestinian resistance.
