MSNBC ANCHOR TELLS ISRAELI AMBASSADOR HAMAS ROCKETS ‘RARELY DO DAMAGE
theblaze.com ^ | 11/19/2012 | Sharona Schwartz

Posted on 11/19/2012 6:26:08 PM PST by massmike

MSNBC’s Mara Schiavocampo began her interview of Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren straightforwardly enough, asking “What would be the trigger for a ground operation? What’s the red line here?”

Oren answered, “You have the equivalent of what would be about 170 million Americans under bomb shelters. If Hamas continues to escalate we will take the necessary and legitimate measures to defend our citizens.”

Schiavocampo’s second question might be considered more controversial.She asked:

“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.”

Schiavocampo then posited that because the number of rocket attacks on Israel has dramatically increased since 2009, Israel’s policy has been a “failure.” By way of comparison, she did not attribute the increase in attacks to other possibilities including: Hamas feeling more emboldened since its ideological ally, the Muslim Brotherhood, took control of next-door Egypt or that its ties have only grown stronger with Iran, which provides its long-range Fajr-5 missiles.

To conclude, Schiavocampo asked:

“The people of Gaza say they’ve been under constant siege from Israeli forces from the air and from the sea. And Gaza, as you know, is one of the most densely populated places in the world. So how does Israel justify its use of military force in such a crowded urban environment?”

Appalling. This is reflective of a mindset that beggars belief. She and her producers must live in an alternative universe.

Since this mindless bitch obviously slept her way to her current job, let’s ask an equally relevant question:

Did you enjoy it, honey?

It is very easy to justify this action. If you will set up your rocket launchers in fields and farmlands we will kill just you in the fields and farmland. If you set up your rockets in urban areas we will kill you there along with the innocents near you just as you planed. Actually in fact you will probably be gone and we will just kill the innocents JUST AS YOUR MUDEROUS BASTAR-s PLANNED.

Mara is stunningly stupid. Seriously, how does she manage to feed and clothe herself without assistance? As Dad (and Grand-Dad) would say - "She couldn't pour p*ss out of a boot with directions written on the heel."

Can she really be that blind to the double-standard in thinking that her questions reveal? Really? Hamas rockets into Israeli cities should be brushed off like some fraternity prank? Yet Israeli attempts to end the violence through measured, precision, and restrained use of military force are considered unjustifiable? Stunning, just stunning that someone that clueless still has a job that doesn't involve a broom handle and a mop bucket.

Let her say that to the Brits who remember the bombings from the Nazi V-1 and V-2 rockets as well as by airplane.

Where does MSNBC dig up these dummies? I'd like to see her live under the constant threat of rocket attack.

A reporter that obviously needs assignment in Israel while the rockets are raining down. Ditz I think is the word for such an uninformed reporter.

I would love to see that suggestion tactfully phrased and used against her in an interview.

(Anderson Cooper should have a talk with her.)

Explosion interrupts live Anderson Cooper report
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/explosion-anderson-cooper-gaza-video-160906573.html

CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer traveled to Gaza over the weekend to cover the escalating conflict between Israel and Hamas, and one of Cooper’s first reports from the region was interrupted by rocket fire.

Cooper was reporting live from Gaza on Sunday when an explosion caused him to duck for cover.

“Whoa,” he said, looking back at the blast. “That was a rather large explosion.”

A flash of light could be seen shortly before the explosion sent Cooper scrambling. The CNN star stood up and laughed nervously, telling anchor Don Lemon that the blast—the largest he had heard since his arrival on Sunday—set off a number of car alarms.
