Default The left's view: Israel is not much damaged by continual rocket fire from Hamas

According to Mara Schiavocampo on MSNBC, Hamas' continual barrage of rockets into Israel is really no big deal, apart from any "psychological trauma" it might impart.

As she phrased it, in an interview with Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren:

Quote:
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.
With this, we have the left's core position: A sovereign nation should not be overly concerned about rockets raining down upon its citizenry, just so long as not too many of those citizens are actually killed.

Some houses blown apart, and innumerable citizens living in a constant state of terror--well, no biggee...

Who is Mara Schiavocampo and when did she become spokesman for the lefts views? Or was that your decision? BTW when has
"A sovereign nation should not be overly concerned about rockets raining down upon its citizenry, just so long as not too many of those citizens are actually killed. "become my view?

Seriously, If you really want the lefts view just ask me.

Mikeyy claims Schiavocampo's statements do not speak for the left, and in the same post wants to speak for the left.

I sometimes wonder if anyone thinks before they post anymore.

Well he seems confused. Obviously this is not a view shared by the left and I am sure I can educate him. He seems to have mistaken someones views for the lefts views. Funny Comet that you find no issue with his broad brush statement but come to challenge me again. Your slip is showing again dear.

Since I assume you believe Obama is part of the left, what do you say to his continued reiteration of Israel's right to defend itself?

I do believe that President Obama cna be found somewhere considerably to the left of center; but not all leftists march in lockstep, just as not all conservatives do, either.

In any case, I do believe President Obama's recent support of Israel is probably rather half-hearted, and more a matter of political convenience than core conviction. Moreover, his animus toward Prime Minister Netanyahu is obvious.

I really do not remember having dragged your name into this matter, in the OP.

So, you are now the (self-appointed) spokesman for the left?

If you are going to find the most fringe comments and then apply them to the left I should be able to correct your misunderstanding.
