"The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah is being ripped for suggesting Israel should limit its intensity of response to deadly rocket attacks by Hamas. 

Noah even compared the deadly attacks with his sibling conflict. 

“Israel has one of the most powerful militaries in the world,” Noah said Tuesday. “They could crush Gaza like that … and I know, I know that this is contentious, and I know that people are gonna hate me for this, but I just want to ask an honest question: If you’re in a fight where the other person cannot beat you, how hard should you retaliate when they try to hurt you?” 

"As a person who has immensely more power, I had to ask myself whether my response to this child was just or necessary,” he said. “Could I find different ways to deal with this? Whether I felt aggrieved or not, or whether they were fighting fair, was almost irrelevant.” 

Israel and Palestine. Let’s talk about it.

After these remarks were made by Trevor, he is being widely criticised over the internet for his foolish opinions. 

American Jewish Committee  CEO David Harris wrote in an open letter to Trevor: “Sorry, but your younger siblings were not plotting murder and wreaking societal havoc.”

Former New York Times opinion editor Barri Weiss wrote on her Substack, "Just so we have this straight: A country should accept a terrorist group launching deadly rockets at its civilian population because a comedian thinks that the terror group won’t win?”
