This Gaza mess…

The quote of this week comes from the freshly returned Daily Show.

Jon Stewart: Hamas’ continued insistence on firing rockets into Israel, and Israel’s continued insistence on the soul-crushing segmentation and blockading of Gaza is a very complex situation…

[Various media pundits compare the situation to  rockets being fired into the United states from either Tijuana, Cuba or Vancouver…
Then, New York’s mayor Bloomberg makes it all the more accessible for Joe Sixpack:]

Bloomberg: Let me just phrase it for you, something that’ll bring it home. If you’re in your apartment and some emotionally disturbed person is banging on the door, screaming “I’m gonna come through this door and kill you,” do you want us to respond with one police officer, which is proportional, or with all the resources at our command?

Stewart: I guess that depends if I force that guy to live in my hallway. And make him go through checkpoints every time he has to take a sh*t.

It’s all in the last minute of this segment here:
