22-Dec-06: In Confusing Times, It Sometimes Pays to Stop, Look and Listen

There's steady bloodshed going on down south of us. The revolutionary heros of the Palestinian Arab nation-to-be are busy firing into one another, into one another's children and into Israeli homes, towns and cities that have the misfortune of a location close to the Gaza Strip.

There's been a ceasefire between Israeli forces and the Hamas/Fatah/Jihadist gangs since November... but as of yesterday more than forty Qassam rockets had been fired in the direction of Israel since it was announced, presumably to provide added emphasis to that ceasefire.

There have been numerous injuries and plenty of damage from the random firings of these 'heros', mostly among their own children, siblings and cousins.

Yesterday, though several rockets crashed into the southern Israeli city of Sderot, most of the injuries were among small Arab children in Gazan Bet Hanoun where a rocket fell short. Your local media won't report it (Pal Arabs injuring other Pal Arabs? Who cares?) so click on this Israeli media link about the rockets, or this other Israeli link about forocious gun-fights and mutual kidnappings and killings (read about Pal-Arab parents placing their children into empty baths to protect them from revolutionary bullets flying in through the window) among over-supplied, over-testosteroned Pal-Arab terror gangs.

And not only in Gaza.

The pictures above are from yesterday in the entirely-Pal-Arab-controlled town of Nablus. The manly heros prancing, preening and wielding their weaponry belong to the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a thuggish, brutish armed gang that answers directly to the head of Fatah, Mahmoud Abbas (a.k.a. the president of the Palestinian Authority). You don't really need to know much about the attitude of Pal-Arab society to the welfare of its own children beyond what these images convey so articulately.

But if perchance you do care to hear a reasonable, rational, extraordinarily well-informed Arab voice speaking articulately and fearlessly about the moral dimensions of the endless war of terror against the Jewish communities of Israel and about the almost inconceivable harm which Palestinian Arab society has done to itself and in particular its children, this video speech would be a good place to start.

For reasons that some people may understand, we get an inordinate number of haters and cranks visiting this site and attempting to post anonymous messages that propagate their intolerance. We're as open minded as the next blog, but we will not be publishing any anonymous hate messages here.
