MSNBC Anchor Tells Israeli Ambassador Hamas Rockets 'Rarely Do damage.....
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."

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?”
Oren replied:

“Actually, Gaza is not one of the most densely populated areas of the world. It’s a conventional myth. Tel Aviv is four times more densely populated than Gaza is. But having said that we are operating in a densely populated area, That is true. And we have conducted more than 1,000 air strikes against rocket bases, rocket launching pits, arsenals, command headquarters and we have taken extraordinary, I would even say super-human measures to avoid inflicting civilian casualties there. We’ve made tens of thousands of phone calls, dropped leaflets, we’ve sent text messages to people, civilians in these areas, warning them to clear out. And as a result, we’ve been able to reduce civilian casualties to a minimum. It’s always regretful when civilians are hurt. But up to this point, three-quarters of all the people who have been hurt in Gaza have been armed terrorists.”

Disproportional Response????I had a cousin who was a police officer in McKinney Tx in 1970. He was shot to death while answering a domestic dispute call by a man with a tiny .22 caliber pistol.

Should the man who killed him have been excused for the murder because he used a .22 and not something larger and more destructive???? The disproportional argument is HORSESHIT!!!!!

does anyone ever wonder if the people, aka journalists, at msnbc ever feel any shame? i thought once they got rid of olberman that maybe there was a slight glimmer of hope that real journalism would start happening on that channel? however when one hires nothing but clowns one should not be surprised when a circus breaks out.

Re: MSNBC Anchor Tells Israeli Ambassador Hamas Rockets 'Rarely Do damage.....
It's a fair question.

Most of the time it is Israel launching missles on themselves to make it look like they are being attacked. 99% of it is bullshit. It's why the missles almost ALWAYS land in an open field.

Anyway, Palestinians are justified if they do attack. Israel is a sick shithole that needs to be wiped forever off the map.
