If Andrea Mitchell were a real reporter and if MSNBC were a real news outlet, this would never have happened. Mitchell had a guest, an Israeli with two children that were kidnapped by Hamas and tried to convince her Israel is at fault. Yeah, and it was Custer’s fault that the Indians massacred his entire 7th Calvary. And the Trail of Tears was the fault of the Indians. Here is a lesson in never blaming the victims.
Let’s recap what this is all about. Hamas shot hundreds of missiles into Israel, wiped out a dance party, murdered 40 children, beheaded babies and Israeli soldiers, and raped and kidnapped women along with soldiers and others. There had been raid on Gaza, no rockets of any kind being fired at them, and yet we are to believe it is the fault of the Israelis. This was an unprovoked attack simply because they are Jews.
Mitchell hosted an Israeli mom whose two children were abducted by Hamas. This evil woman had the guts to imply that Israel should not counterattack. Needless to say the mother of the two kidnapped boys was having none of that.
You've got to see the look of sheer disbelief on the face of this Israeli mother whose son was kidnapped by Hamas when MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell asks "What are your feelings about the attacks against Gaza right now?" pic.twitter.com/Nvz8CQH1aC

Mitchell: What are your feelings about the attacks against Gaza right now?”
You are looking for a symmetrical situation and I must say it isn’t… countries do not take children hostages. It’s against the laws of war, it’s against humanity.
Every time we had missiles shot at us I used to say to my children they should be sympathetic toward the children of Gaza because they suffer a lot more than they do. I’m not sure I believe it now.
The only worry I have right now from the bombings in Gaza is the fact my children are there.
I can’t be sympathetic to animal human beings — well, they’re not really human beings — who came into my house, broke everything, stole everything, took my children from their bedrooms and took them to the Gaza Strip.
Israel never done that, and it will never do. So there is no symmetry! I’m sorry.
Mitchell: Do you want there government to put a top priority on getting the hostages out?
Israeli mom: I want my government to put it on the first priority and I want the world to put it on the first priority.
