The Left’s default position is to be anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian under all circumstances. Palestinians could fire a million rockets in Israel and the moment Israel does something about it, it gets condemn as the aggressor for defending herself.
Palestinians are always the perpetual victims, according to the Left, no matter how many rockets they fire. It’s ridiculous how educated people can be so ignorant.
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.”
