Mara's assessment that Hamas' rockets "rarely do damage" is so pathetic it almosts arrests any ability to breathe, let alone respond. But, I'll try...... Putting it in terms that Mara may better understand, one might ask her this question: "Mara, what would you say to all of those dirt-poor people who purchase a lottery ticket in hopes of winning the, 'Big One', while reality reveals that the chances of actually holding the winning ticket, are less-than one being struck by lightning----or-----far less than being hit by a hamas rocket?"

"Keep in mind, Mara, that your relatives are opting to forego food and other life essentials in diverting their resources towards a "hope-to-win", pie-in-the-sky shot at capturing the impossible odds of haulin' a huge windfall...

...so, Mara, what do you say to those who are throwing money away, daily, weekly, monthly, at the microscopic chance at "hitting" the, BIG ONE? Like, you know, it's very similar to an Israeli concerning oneself with being hit by a "largely ineffective" life-ending rocket explosion in their living room....{{{ you effing ignoramus }}}

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.”
