The establishment media has displayed time and time again that they have little to no understanding about the conflict taking place in and around the Gaza Strip. John Oliver was among the latest media figures to lie about Israel’s role in the conflict, but a 10-year-old Israeli girl did not let his comments go unnoticed. In recent days — before a ceasefire agreement was reached Thursday — Palestinian terrorist groups like Hamas recklessly fired over 4,000 rockets toward Israel. Oliver pointed out on Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight” that many of those rockets were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome system. The implied meaning of Oliver’s segment was all too clear: Israel’s superior defense system apparently means that it should have no right to respond or defend itself with reactionary attacks. “It is true that militants from Palestinian groups like Hamas fired over 1,000 rockets toward Israel this week, and that is reprehensible, but … the majority of those rockets thankfully didn’t reach their targets for a very clear reason,” Oliver said on the HBO program.
