I can't believe the reporter was stupid enough to ask about civilian "Palestinian" casualties.

What an idiot.

Well, at least Joan straightened that dork out.

After her response, she totes her own luggage into the terminal. She’s 81 and wealthy; she could have a flunky haul her stuff around. Good on her.

Damn, Joan Rivers and TMZ doing something I like in the same moment? What are the chances?

Rivers got it right. TMZ both tossed the softballs (intentional or not), and then aired it.

Perhaps the first time I’ve seen a (so called) celebrity get it this right on an issue concerning Israel.

Thank you Joan Rivers!

What if Germany rained rockets into London? Did it. Done that. What did Great Britain do?

Before I answer that, here is a fact: During 1940-1945 some 60,000 British civilians were killed by German Nazi aerial bombings (43,000 from September 1940 to May 1941).

What did Great Britain do? The British RAF dropped over 10,000 tons of bombs on Brunswick and Duisburg. 2,500 civilians were killed in Duisburg alone. That is just two cities. I did not have time to research more of the British retaliation. However, history is a strict teacher, which is something the typical college grad has no clue.

The British bombing of Dresden, the seventh largest city of Nazi Germany was especially costly in civilian lives. It was difficult to get the exact figures because there were numerous refuges in the city. However, figures as high as 135,000 people perished in the fire storms sweeping the city from the Allied bombs.

Dresden was a strategic target because of the weapons and military equipment factories. It was also a key rail hub to send troops and military assets to the front lines.

3,300 tons of bombs were dropped on the city in three waves of attack. Many of the bombs were incendiary bombs that created so much fire that a firestorm developed. The more the city burned, the more oxygen was sucked in – and the greater the firestorm became. This caused people to suffocate without oxygen in the underground shelters. It is thought that the temperature peaked at 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. Such heat caused the streets to melt and become so hot that the fleeing population burned their feet so bad they fell to the ground to their deaths.

It took two weeks to gather up and burn the bodies.

The mad men of the Gasa had better take notice of history’s fate in store for them.

As a side note, Winston Churchill was considering the use of the atomic bomb against Nazi Germany.

I think Israel needs to draw a line in the sand— the line between sand and glass.
