The Hamas Trutherism of BuzzFeed’s Sheera Frenkel and New York Magazine’s Katie Zavadski was a low point in their morals and their journalism. Their false claims that the three Israeli teens were not murdered by Hamas was straight Hamasbara.

Now the father of a murdered 16-year-old boy is fighting back.

The father of one of the three Israeli teens abducted and murdered by Hamas terrorists said he is saddened and puzzled by erroneous reports on the incident that claim Hamas did not play a role in the brutal killings.

Ofir Shaer, the father of 16-year-old Gilad Shaer, who was abducted in June with two other teens, questioned the motives of outlets such as BuzzFeed, which has come under scrutiny in recent weeks for publishing reports claiming that Hamas was not involved in the incident, despite mounting evidence presented by Israeli authorities indicating otherwise.

Asked by the Washington Free Beacon to comment on the reports by Buzzfeed’s Sheera Frenkel, Shaer dubbed the articles “wishful thinking” and criticized the outlet for not printing “responsible things.”

Shaer, who was still mourning the loss of his son, dismissed these claims as fiction.

“You should try to be saying responsible things,” he said. “I don’t know what people thought when they were trying to say things that are not as the facts say.

Sheera Frenkel has continued doubling down on her crazy lies, claiming that “anonymous sources” support her Hamasbara.

    It is not important that the truth be told. What is important is that there is an “authority” from which to cut and paste literally or figuratively.

    Sheera Frenkel’s ‘anonymous sources’ are the voices in her head. As for her BuzzFeed? Fits between her legs.
