This is an example of the best and brightest that the Obozo administration can muster. A bona fide moron speaking on behalf of a government of parasites.
You've all heard the term, Media Wh0re. This ldl0t is the wikipedia definition, if you can put any faith in that "institution".
The media in this country is so currupt they should be brought up on charges and thrown in jail. I wish Israel would steamroll gaza and let these bastards know once and for all we are not going to take it any more.
Typical liberal talking points. Very stale ones. Have been used for three or more decades.
If Canada or Mexico were lobbing missiles and rockets over our borders we would clean their clocks.
Yes, the response is disproportionate yet the ignoramuses in Gaza keep launching rockets. What's that saying? The definition of insane is repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting a different result? Can there be a better definition of "dumb ass"?
What stupid troll. So unless the rockets actually kill people, Israel should just sit back and do nothing? Can you get more ridiculous?
This sickness is spreading. I visited Zerohedge the other day and they had two separate posts up showing the IDF targeted attacks "from the Palestinian perspective."
The comments were full of Jew Hating A**holes. If these are libertarians, then we aren't going to be able to accommodate them in any effort at restoration.
How long do you think it would take for this idiot to resort to violence if I kept throwing firecrackers in his windows?
Who the F**KIN' H#LL is this C**T TO CRITICIZE ANYTHING ISRAEL DOES?
Why doesn't she start criticizing Obama? I know, silly question.
American Jews love Obama, and by extension, his progressive minions. These very same progressive minions hate Israel and open root for its destruction.
What am I missing here?
If the rockets "rarely do damage" is it only because the Israeli anti-missile shield has been able to shoot many of them down.
What these Israel-hating liberal reporters fail to mention in their attacks on Israel is that under international law, if you are hiding or conducting military operations among civilians, you are the one responsible for ensuring their safety. No one but Hamas is to blame when children are injured because Hamas was launching rockets from a school yard.
I'll tell ya what, give me a call when Israel nukes Gaza, then maybe we'll talk 'disproportionate'. ;-) ;-)
You don't want to get beat down, there's a really simple way to avoid it, don't start a fight.
Is that to suggest that Israel should return the favor in kind and start shooting rockets at Gaza in the same quantity?
I wonder if NBC's Mara Schiavocampo was reassigned to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem if she would still have such a cavalier attitude toward Israel's justification to use military force to defend itself from the terrorist bomb attacks by Hamas?
So the United States news, skews its coverage towards GAZA now.
It seems the world is upside down.
Have I said lately how much I loathe our media?
How about this reply by the ambassador: Let's say your neighbor had his toddlers throwing hand grenades at your house twice a day. Because they were toddlers they kept missing and landing in your yard. You have children as well. It turns out that so far, your family hasn't been in the part of the yard where one of those grenades landed. You have politely asked the neighbor to stop. You have threatened to take action. Nothing. He is confident that you will do nothing because he is hiding behind his toddlers.
At this point, we have decided that our children have to be protected. The people of Gaza have a stake in this war. By now it is quite clear to anyone in Gaza that they should stay away from Hezbollah leaders and activists. Stay away from their homes. Stay out of their cars. Stay away from them when they are out in public. Don't vote for them in the next election. Form your own group to capture and kill them yourselves so you can have a free and peaceful existence. Until the rockets from Gaza stop, Israel will continue to engage in all necessary and proper methods to protect our citizens from those toddlers.
So, Mr. Ambassador, had you given up heroin before or after you became a wife beater?
It would seem that Israelis are not immune to the virus which compels republicans to subject themselves to the inane comments from lefty news readers.
Yes, those rockets fired from Gaza are very "ineffective," that is, of course, until one of them hits your house and kills you and your family. Why would any country allow rockets to be fired at it on a regular basis? I'm just surprised that the Israeli response has been so tame. The arabs will not rest until Israel is destroyed. Period. Pity we have a president that agrees with Hamas and Hezbollah.
Doncha wonder how msnbc is going to spin Obamas visit to Cambodia?
" The president went to Cambodia for educational purposes and to sample the food".
Is he furthering his marxist leadership credentials?
"...what would you say to those who argue that the rockets are essentially very ineffective, they rarely do damage and that the response from Israelis is disproportional to the threat they’re under?”
I would say to them that they are Hamas sympathizers who share Hamas's desire to destroy Israel.
Another example of what we are up against. Once upon a time, we could trust the news to be fair and accurately reported, but I honestly can't remember WHEN that was!
Now news broadcasts are designed to shape the viewers opinions by presenting them with a highly bias agenda, almost exclusively from the marxist doctrine.
Colliemum reports downthread that BBC is doing the same as MSNBC, inventing the news to fit their bias.
What is so bad about this is that so many viewers will accept this drivel as gospel! As Green Beret Way said below, folks without 2 brain cells to rub together.
The Israelis need to offer this guy a month long all expenses paid vacation at the Israeli seaside resort of Ashkelon. I hear they have fireworks every day to demonstrate the Iron Dome.
Let's see how many days his nerves can take the rockets!!
"Gaza being one of the most densely populated places in the world."
Bahahaha! What a joke! Even my younger brother won't get that statistic wrong. MSDNC at its finest.
I lived in NYC a number of years ago. One day, there was a small fire in a closet in the offices of one of the networks. I forget exactly where, but it may have been Rockefeller Center. They literally had helicopters hovering over the building with live video for hours. There was no smoke. No one got hurt. There was virtually no damage. And this chick is sitting in her office in NYC and claiming that it's mainly "psychological" and that "rockets rarely do damage"? That's rich, really rich.
Israel is at fault... It's like their default answer. It's Israels fault. It's bushs fault! It's anyone but the aggressors and the Libtards' fault. There has GOT to be a LOT of space to rent in their heads!!!
It's kind of like a bully beating up a smaller kid while shouting "It's your fault I'm hitting you!".
UGH! What a disgusting thought Wolfie! What sane person would even WANT to rent space in one of those diseased heads!! Just the very thought of doing so makes me ill!
Oh... sorry Vg1... Here, have a look at this and see if it makes up a little:
It's less than 30 seconds long.
“But what would you say to those who argue that the rockets are essentially very ineffective, they rarely do damage and that the response from Israelis is disproportional to the threat they’re under?”
Wow I wonder if they would feel the same if those rockets were dropping near there homes on a daily basis. I can't think of any country that would be okay with that. And disproportional? Who ever fights a fair war? Is Israel supposed to wait until Hamas gets deadlier more accurate rockets before they attack?
"So does this show that Israel‘s policy towards Gaza has been a failure?”
What policy is that? The policy to defend yourself? The number of rocket attacks was significantly reduced after Operation Cast Lead in the 2008 Gaza conflict. It was the reason for the blockade in the first place. Since there has been a regime change in Egypt and the blockade has been broken on that side more weapons have been smuggled thru. This is a failure on Obama's part for encouraging the so-called Muslim springs and throwing Mubarak under the bus.
What an absolute disgrace this anchor is to journalism!!!!!!!!!!
I must congratulate Mr. Oren for keeping his composure during this interview because as I watched I was beginning to lose mine. Excuse me, did I say interview?????? This was not an interview but a sham and a one sided display of the Left's hatred of Israel.
Enough of the propaganda being spewed by the world's media because Israel has every right to defend her land and her people and IMO has used great restraint in not making Gaza a barren piece of land. I will also give Israel credit for telling the people of Gaza to take cover because it's a whole lot more than what Hamas has done in trying to terrorize Israeli citizens.
Thank God Heaven watches over Israel and her people and I pray the "chariots of fire" catch and redirect each rocket into unpopulated areas. Lord, confuse the enemy just as You did in 2 Chronicles 20. Amen.
