Bibi gets off Sunday’s best line

Interviewed by Brit Hume on Fox News Sunday, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu distilled the essence of his nation’s current conflict with Hamas forces in Gaza — in which Israel explodes incoming missiles with its “Iron Dome” defense and Hamas stores rockets in mosques and sites launchers near schools — in a quip:

“Here’s the difference between us. We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”

Done and dusted.
