Moderate Palestinians: Please Take Control!
What's there to love about the Palestinians (and by saying that I mean the ones who are terrorists, not the caught-between-a-rock-and-a-hard-place civilians)? Why on earth should anyone care about these people when they appear to contribute nothing to society but mayhem, despair and death? I could live with their contributing nothing if they didn't make things worse. But they do! I won't even go back to the PLO antics, etc. Let's simply take a look at their recent actions post Gaza disengagement.
Torching Synagogues -- After mobs of marauding Palestinians set fire to several of the synagogues abandoned in the now empty Jewish settlements, machinery was sent in to raze whatever was left standing.
Looting -- Yesterday Gaza, today the West Bank: Hundreds of Palestinian villagers from the northern West Bank raided Saturday the evacuated settlement of Homesh after realizing there were no IDF troops in the area.
Smuggling -- Large quantities of weapons, including anti-tank missiles, have been pouring into the Gaza Strip through the porous Egyptian border, IDF and Shin Bet officials warned Friday.
Lawlessness -- Chaos after the Israeli military pullout this week is raising serious questions about the PA's ability to assert control.
Then one of my favorites...
Ridiculous Double Speak -- Palestinian minister slams Israeli decision to leave synagogues intact, claiming it was a political trap.
Caroline Glick in the Jerusalem Post seems dumbfounded by the situation too.
After the firebombing came the looting of the destroyed Jewish communities. Then came the looting of the hothouses which had been bought for the Palestinians by wealthy Jews in the US who decided to buy them so that the Palestinians could reap what their expelled Israeli brethren had sown.
Sometime between destroying the abandoned synagogues, looting the destroyed Jewish villages, tearing apart the hothouses, throwing grenades at IDF patrols guarding Moshav Netiv Ha'asara and shooting mortars at Sderot, the Palestinians discovered Egypt. At the direction of Hamas, and with the help of PA militias and Egyptian soldiers, thousands of Palestinians crossed the wall separating Palestinian Rafah from Egyptian Rafah. Among the merrymakers, unknown numbers of terrorists crossed back and forth shuttling arms and reinforcements into Gaza in unknown quantities. IDF commanders looked on, and impotently stated that there is a high probability that al-Qaida operatives are among the newcomers. Oh well.
All the opportunities to make themselves a better life and yet they still can't get it together. How many chances must they be given? How many different ways can they show us that all they want is for all the Jews to die before someone steps up and says, "No more!" I mean someone besides Israel. Is the rest of the world so anti-Semitic that they don't mind how morally bankrupt they look supporting these savages?
