RUSH: Now, back to the Israeli-Hamas situation, ’cause this is good. Last night on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront she interested the Israeli ambassador to the UN, Ron Dermer. Now, there’s been all these arguments, all of this pressure on Israel, because they’re just not fair. They’re not telling Hamas early enough that they’re gonna bomb ’em. When have you ever heard in a war that the person bombing you gives you 20 minutes lead time to get out of the way? Never, right?
Well, the Israelis are doing this. They’re sending in little warning bombs that don’t do any damage. They go off, and when that happens you’re supposed to vacate the building ’cause an attack’s coming in like five minutes.
Do remember that time when you were in school and you ended up in the janitor’s office and you found all those surface-to-air missiles hidden in there? Remember that time? Yeah, right, because there wasn’t. Well, they found missiles in schools in the Gaza Strip. And we played the sound bites on this yesterday. They gave the missiles back to the police in Gaza, which is Hamas.
So, anyway, there’s been all this reporting about the schools and Israel, and how children are being killed and so forth. And this ambassador is just livid at CNN for misreporting this. He was on with Erin Burnett last night. There’s three sound bites here. Her first question: “What happened here is horrific, and we don’t yet even know the scale of how many children may have died. Initial reports indicate at least 16 are dead and that this attack had come from Israeli tanks. The Israeli military said it may have come from Hamas and a rocket which misfired. Mr. Ambassador, do you know any more at this point?”

RUSH: This was not over. This was not over, ladies and gentlemen, and this next one is too much because in this one the infobabe suggests that the warning shots from Israel are not enough! When has anybody ever been so humanitarian as to warn a target that an attack is coming? This is what Israel has been reduced to in order to be perceived as fair by the media and by the United Nations and by Hamas.
Because, see, Israel is like the US — big, powerful, and that’s just not fair — and poor little Hamas doesn’t even have a chance. So the Israelis, in order to try to get fair coverage are warning their targets with harmless little missiles that hit the roof of the building with a puff of smoke. It’s enough to let you know that it’s hit, and it’s a warning that a bigger attack is coming, and CNN here is unhappy that the warnings are not enough.

RUSH: But it won’t be because the media doesn’t want the outrage on Hamas. Hamas is the innocent victim — the small, little, just-barely-eking-out-a-survival victim, barely holding on against the evil Goliath that’s Israel. “They can’t be blamed for putting rockets in schools. It’s the only way they can keep the Israelis from wiping them out,” blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, I wanted you to hear it because this doesn’t happen much where the media gets called on their absolute… It’s worse than bias. It’s just a lack of professionalism and everything. It is bias but it’s worse than that.
They’ve chosen sides here.
There’s no question.
