MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell sat down today with Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, and asked him a provocative question: is Israel “losing its soul [and] may be losing the war because of the political impact of what is happening on the ground” in Gaza?

Mitchell brought this up in the context of images depicting wounded and killed Palestinians, in those conditions as agpoj-approved-panic possible result of Israeli bombing.

“The difference is Hamas is using their civilians as human shields. They’re placing missile batteries in hospitals, they’re putting weapons depots in mosques. They’re storing rockets in UN schools. This is sick and grotesque.”

Dermer insisted, “Israel is not losing its soul. We are upholding our values under the most extreme circumstances.”

He said Israel is very concerned about civilian casualties and he finds those pictures personally heart-wrenching. However, Dermer explained, “The difference is Hamas is using their civilians as human shields. They’re placing missile batteries in hospitals, they’re putting weapons depots in mosques. They’re storing rockets in UN schools. This is sick and grotesque.”
