I've little doubt that - for better or worse - future generations will equate the name "Palestinian" with the concept of "voluntary targets" at best, "suicidally stupid" at worst.
For generations now, Palestinian Arabs have willingly sacrificed themselves, their children, and their future on the altar of terrorism. They have had countless opportunities to live peacefully within the borders of Israel - the limp-wristed liberalites AND the hard-liners in the Knesset have insisted on that - yet the fundamentalists in the PLO and Hamas have kept up their campaign of intolerance and violence regardless of the wishes of either the left or the right, Israeli or Arab.
The usual, all too predictable repetition of attacks and reprisals.
That situation is still developing, and pundits from London to D.C. to Delhi are wagging their tongues and posting voluminous - and often conflicting - analyses of the events in Gaza.
I'm not going to go into detail, or even put out the all-too-obvious predictions of how all that will turn out.
I'll only write this:
Look at who benefits from all that shit.
There's sick smiles and cynical back-slapping happening in Tehran and Moscow. If you don't know why that is, don't feel too bad - there are LOTS of self-styled "experts" who are just as lost as you are.
Problem is, way too many of those phony "experts" get huge paychecks from various world governments.
...and far too many of those governments cast votes like this in the UN.
Like I said earlier, I'll not be posting any detailed analysis to the events in Gaza, but I WILL ask a question:
Do you stand with Israel or not?
...and if you know anything of Israel's history and can still even HOPE there's a third option to that question, then you're a bigger fool than the Pawn-estinians.
I don't even pity them any more, but it's a God-damned crime what they're allowing to happen to their kids...for someone else's ambition.
