MSNBC Implies Israel Is Perpetrating Terrorism

MSNBC wonk Joy Reid curiously pointed out, “So far the war in Gaza has left more than 1,800 Palestinians dead, the population equivalent to one hundred 9/11s – mostly civilizes and including women and hundreds of children.” This outrageous comparison reveals just how far the Leftmedia will go to condemn our strongest Middle East ally. Israel didn’t provoke this conflict; the jihadist group Hamas did. Yet Reid would have you believe Israel is the one perpetrating terrorism. To put Reid’s observation another way, should America have not retaliated following the 9/11 terrorist attacks? Hamas is using women and children as human shields precisely because doing so will evoke sympathy from the media. As Thomas Sowell observed, “Has any other country, in any other war, been expected to keep the enemy’s civilian casualties no higher than its own civilian casualties?” Reid concluded, “At this point the UN can’t even protect the civilians hiding in its own elementary schools.” Which begs the question: What exactly is the point of the UN?
