Trevor Noah and John Oliver say that death counts alone are enough to see that Israel is wrong, and fighting an “unfair fight.” What do you do with a claim like that?

This is a segment from The “Fair Thoughts & Unhappy Hours” Edition.

  1. Josh Kleinman says:

    Interesting , that after Noah’s Intro today , during your discussions of power – no one even mentioned the fact that Hamas escalated the conflict ( which was horrible to start) into an all out war by firing missiles into Israel first. Do you think that they did not know, (or want a ) a disproportionate response from Israel would occur with many Palestinian deaths . Again , all the criticism is of Israel . Who do you suggest Israeli leadership could make a long lasting peace with in Gaza ?

    1. Charlotte Steinberg says:

      The other thing was was not touched on, not even mentioned , is the fact that HAMAS WANTS ALL JEWS DEAD AND ISRAEL DESTROYED. I’d love to see someone come up with a “creative solution” for how to stop someone from destroying you when their goal, in fact their raison d’etre is to kill you. It’s not about land, it’s not about occupation, it’s not about oppression. It’s about Hamas’s inability to accept the existence of a Jewish state.
