Juan Williams: Don't You Think Israel is Being a Little Harsh on Hamas?

I heard that so far in 2012, Hamas has fired 800+ rockets into civilian areas of Israel. If this is correct, then I say Juan is completely wrong. Israel has shown remarkable restraint under the circumstances. And, by the way, how come you never hear about the hundreds of Hamas rockets in the MSM? Silly me, what a dumb question . . .

There are many reason for that. One is that they are old Iranian missiles that are fired into outskirts and often do not explode. How many images have you seen of rusted missiles just laying in the street?

Most of those that you have seen are those that have been shot down with Iron Dome. Your not well versed in military hardware are you?

You don't hear from the MSM about hundreds of dud missiles being fired into Israel, either.

Lars -
She is just not well versed at all.

they are GRAD 122mm rockets made in Iran,not "old" munitions,but new.
they also often fall into residential areas,NOT "into outskirts". those are the strays that fall into fields,but the shrapnel still flies great distances and causes harm.
At least Iron Dome is shooting down the GRADS that are coming into populated areas.

a UXB is just as dangerous.
maybe more so,since people have come out of their bomb shelters and are exposed.
look at Germany,where unexploded WW2 bombs aka "duds" have to be carefully removed lest they detonate.

Last night on Special Report, Fox News Political Analyst Juan Williams accused Israel of "overkill" in their efforts to eradicate Hamas and stop rocket (and road bomb) attacks on the Jewish State. Williams also said Egypt was an important mediator, although the country is ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood, a group sympathetic to Hamas.

"The question is overkill."
