MSNBC: Hamas Rockets Actually Don't Do That Much Damage You Know

That was an ignorant question asked by an ignorant person who listens to ignorant academics who espouse theories based solely on statistical data and no real life experience. Living it is something else all together. My family lived in New Orleans in 1962. I lived knowing where the fallout shelters were and what were essentially air raid drills in school. I don't know if this MSNBC anchor has children, but if her daughter or son lived their lives always no more that 15 seconds from a shelter, she would never ask such a foolish question.

Over the weekend in an interview with Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, MSNBC host Mara Schiavocampo suggested rocket attacks "rarely do damage" as Israel continues to be under siege from Hamas militants and as millions of Israelis are camped out in bomb shelters.

“Living under the threat of rocket attack is certainly a psychological trauma. 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.”
