Beyond its military operation targeting the Hamas terrorist infrastructure in Gaza, Israel is invested in an intense media campaign to make sure its side of the story is being heard overseas. But that's not always easy to do.
In an interview with Israel's top envoy to the United States on Saturday, MSNBC provided yet another example of how much work Israeli officials face in their effort to pass through the filter of the mainstream media and present their side of the story.
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, positing the argument that long-range rockets carrying warheads weighing between 20 and 90 kilograms — 46 to 198 pounds — aren't actually dangerous to human life. 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."
Oren answered she might want to pose that question to the three Israelis killed by a rocket in Kiryat Malachi on Thursday (see TheBlaze's story here and Glenn Beck's segment looking at media bias and profiling the victims here). Oren suggested Schiavocampo envisage what would happen if Hamas were bombing America. He said:
"Imagine if one rocket had fallen in the United States and not now since the year 2009, our last operation, we've had something in the vicinity of 8,000 rockets fall on the State of Israel. That's more than twice all of the German rockets that fell on London during World War II. And you saw how the British and Americans reacted to that."
