Did Geraldo Really Just Use the Word ‘Appalling’ While Describing Israel’s Defense of Itself?

His comments basically exploded the panel.

On this morning’s Out Numbered on Fox News, Geraldo Rivera gave his perspective on Israel by explaining that Israel’s “appalling” actions justify the decline in support both from the U.S. and the rest of the world. Co-hosts Jedidiah Bila, Andrea Tantaros, and Harris Faulkner certainly did not agree.

Rivera’s opening comment:

I think Israel has only itself to blame.

 

I think the force used has been so grossly disproportionate. They have inflicted civilian casualties in a way that the United States and United Nations Secretary General are correct to call appalling. You don’t use tank shells if you’re trying to make a precision strike.

 

I’ve covered war for over 40 years. If you want to use a hellfire missile directed by a drone you can put it in a window of a building that you want to. Using a tank shell, in this case the firing that they were receiving was 200 years, 2 football fields away from where those tank shells landed, taking those 10 lives.

 

This is a travesty. It is hurting Israel on the world stage. It is undermining support for the Jewish state.

 

The other hosts began to immediately push back and emotions got hot, most notably when Tantaros twice in succession asked the obvious question:

What are kids doing in schools, in the first place, in a war?

The idea of a proportionate response, a point made all the time in this conflict, is basically that anything beyond an equivalent reaction to an attack is an immoral and unjustifiable escalation. It’s an extremely common criticism of Israel.

On the other hand, the overwhelming history of warfare shows that a knock-out punch in return is most effective at demoralizing the opposition and bringing them to their knees. And effectively stopping hostilities. It’s basically the idea of making the response so strong, with all that entails, to put an end to the conflict.

What do you think of Geraldo’s comments and the idea of Israel having gone too far?
