Ever had a rock thrown at you by a Palestinian? I have. What was I doing? Just walking down the road, minding my own business. Pretty sizable rock, too. Did it hit me? No, they've got the worst aim in the world. Did I let them try to throw it at me again? No. I chased the punk down and pummeled him. What do you want Israel to do? Wait until a lot of people die? Leave the land they tried to get back to for 1800 years?

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.”
