Piers Morgan Asked This UK Journalist What He’d Do If He Were Israel’s Prime Minister And His Answer Was Iconic

“I resign. Because I’m responsible for that attack. I’m the one who botched security at the border," Mehdi Hasan said.

British-American journalist Mehdi Hasan has gone viral for his response to a question from controversial journalist Piers Morgan about what he would do if he were Israel’s prime minister on October 7.

Hasan, whose show on MSNBC was canceled after Israel’s war on Gaza, appeared on Piers Morgan Uncensored on Wednesday, March 13 in a wide-ranging interview.

In the interview, Morgan asked Hasan what he would do if he had been the prime minister of Israel when Hamas launched its surprise attack on Oct. 7.

“I resign,” Hasan said. “Because I’m responsible for that attack. I’m the one who botched security at the border.”

“I’m the one who propped up Hamas with money from Qatar over the years and allowed them to be propped up as a way to divide the Palestinian people,” he continued. “I’m the one who’s had millions of my own people on the streets for months protesting against my authoritarian reforms to the judiciary.”

“So I have some shame. I have some self-respect. I have some honesty, and I say I quit. Let someone else do this because I’ve failed for 20 years,” he said.

Hasan’s response has gone viral with many saying he destroyed Morgan and calling it ”the most epic answer ever”.

In the interview, Hasan also called out Morgan’s “racist double standard” for his biased treatment of pro-Palestine guests while playing “softball” with pro-Israeli guests.

Hasan pointed out that Morgan frequently asked pro-Palestinian guests on his show whether they condemn Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack while not asking pro-Israeli guests to condemn Israeli terrorism or Israeli war crimes.

Hasan also went viral in November after he confronted senior Israeli advisor Mark Regev on his MSNBC show, getting Regev to admit that Israel had been sharing disinformation about its war on Gaza.

Since Oct. 7, Israel’s ongoing airstrikes and ground offensive in Gaza have killed more than 31,000 Palestinians, most of them women and children.
