Molly Wharton of NRO draws our attention to a Jon Stewart bit that is quite unsympathetic to Israel concerning its current conflict with Hamas. She provides a link to an editorial written by David Horovitz of the Times of Israel which makes mincemeat of Stewart's claims. Stewart's invective against Israel comes as no surprise. Consider how Stewart framed a question about Israel to NBC's David Gregory in January 2009 shortly before the Obama Administration took office:
STEWART: Why can't American politicians criticize Israel in any way for their behavior? I'm watching these shows and there's not one person who's going, hey, this is kind of complex. Hey, Hamas is a bad actor. They shouldn't be throwing missiles. But the treatment of the Palestinian people the last 50 years. Not so nice either.
