"Which is why if you've been watching any network TV at all, you have not seen Hamas fighters shooting, running away, launching missiles, any of it. It's as if the Israelis are fighting ghosts.

"What you see are rubble and various civilians, women crying, children wounded, or killed … The way that Hamas operates, they maximize civilian casualties on their side for PR benefit and then they're taken very seriously by a lot of the media and a lot of other actors in the international community.''
