wrote an op-ed today, stating "We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza...The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too....This needs to end quickly – with a bang, not a whimper." He's a major in the IDF reserves.
EARLIER Claims of "anti-Israel" media bias in the U.S.--even from Rupert Murdoch on Twitter--remain laughable today. I guess they wonder where are the photos of hundreds of Israeli buildings struck by Hamas missiles and dozens of Israeli casualties. Of course they do not exist. In fact, a large number of the crude rockets self-destruct over Gaza air space. Many of the others are shot down by Israeli missiles. And virtually all of the rest, misfired and faulty, land harmlessly in the countryside, although they do provoke air raid warnings and fear.
It's a far different story in Gaza, of course. An NBC correspondent @AymanM just tweeted that he just watched close-up as a residential building was hit and three kids were pulled out of the ruins. Presumably same incident reported by Reuters--with 10 dead, including six children. Update: Now there are photos of the victims and the site.
And who needs bias when you simply quote the well-known Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai, who says (as cited by Haaretz and others): "The goal of the operation is
to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages. Only then will Israel be calm for
40 years," he declared. President Obama today, in Thailand did the expected, blaming the crisis entirely on 10 days of Hamas missiles--not 60 years of oppression and strike and counter-strike. ((Reuters photo above.)
