Bloomberg: In Israel’s Situation, What Would America Do?

by Ian Tuttle

“Can you imagine if one of the contiguous countries to America were firing rockets at America?” asked former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg on CBS’s Face the Nation. “The same people who are criticizing the Israelis would be going crazy demanding the president does more.”

To guest host Norah O’Donnell’s question of whether Israel’s latest attacks on Gaza had gone too far, Bloomberg responded: “Israel cannot have a proportional response if people are firing rockets at their citizens.”

“Unfortunately,” said Bloomberg, “if Hamas hides among the innocent, the innocent are going to get killed.”
