He has quite a talent for framing things in a brilliantly ironic way, and the recent debate surrounding Israel’s war in Gaza is not immune from his ironic and biting perspective.

    The irony here is we don’t hide our drones in schools, homes and around civilians. A country could do damage to our military (assuming they had the fire power) by targeting quite a few military installations before we would have to become guerrillas and thus hide our weapons in our homes.

    Don’t forget Hamas is a terrorist organization with one goal…an it involves destroying Israel…who are hardly angels themselves.

    Perhaps in The Bizarro World, this analogy would make sense, but not on Earth, where good analogies don’t invert the facts. Like Israel’s missiles, America’s drones aim at military targets. It is Hamas whose missiles indiscriminately “rain down” on civilians, exactly as Germany lobbed its V-1 buzz bombs at the people of London. It is Hamas that urges Gazans to stay in harm’s way as Israel begs them to clear out and treats injured Gazans at Israeli hospitals. Get real.
