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

The Israelis have shown tremendous restraint for the past week by enduring the continuous bombing of their country by those who have pubically sworn to wipe them off the face of the Earth. They have targeted only military installations. Even reports from Gaza indicate that there are relatively few civilian casualties on their side. Israel could have simply indiscriminately bombed them back to the stone age. Given the fact that they are surrounded by an entire region that wants to kill them, common sense would dictate that such action would be warranted. Ah, but there's the rub with MSNBC - common sense.

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.”
