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?

This could be one of the primary Southwest Asian questions of the 21st Century ... Well stated, Esther! (... and that's how "I" feel about the Pales.)

SA, back from another journey into the land of Bill Gate's insane operating system ...

Esther there is and has never been a Palestinian people. This is exatly what Arabs have done to conquered areas for centuries.

Irsad Maji calls this madness foundamentalism. What we are seeing is hyper Arab nationalism cloaking itself in the guise of Islam.

Good job here!

I'm sick of seeing savages prance around with their warlike, kill-all-infidels posturing. The word "apeshit" comes to mind. In medieval Spain, the Moors had the sense to convert existing Christian structures to Muslim structures. Not a pretty time, by any means, but not nearly as savage as these 21st century nutjobs in Gaza. Of course, these Arabs hate Jews worse than anything else.

The recent barbarism in Gaza gives the world a true picture of Islamism.

And we'd better not kid ourselves here: one day, missiles will be lobbed at Israel from a position in Gaza.

PS: Beak makes a good point about the term "Palestinian." It's a propaganda term.

One day??? It's already happening.

I guess it doesn't count if it doesn't kill anyone.

The media calls it - first days of true freedom.
I dread to to see the rest of it.

At 5:41 PM, Blogger Esther said...

Glad to have you back, SA!!!!!!!! That sounds like one scary journey! ;)

Beak, I agree. The PLO was formed in 1964, three years before Israel won Gaza and the West Bank during a defensive war. All they want is Israel to be Juderein. That's it. Though I'm sure if the whole world was as well, they'd be fine with that too.

Man, I wasn't ready for it to go and then it went twice! Sigh... That'll teach me to do the word verification before I'm done.

AOW, thank you! And I wish the antics in Gaza proved something to the world but they'll turn a blind eye, I'm afraid.

Mark, right you are. But I fear that's how Sharon sees it -- if no one is killed, why retaliate?

FELIS!!!!!!!!! You're back! Woohoo!! And I share your fear.

I keep thinking that they were given this wonderful gift and they tore it up stamped on it like a spoiled child who wanted more.

As I wrote to a penfriend; wouldn't one think the entrance in what may many have called the start of one's own country, would be preceeded by solemnity, messages of peace and friendship, speeches of joy, thanksgiving and hope for the future, rather than looting, destructions and threats?

And what message does the world send to them? The same message too many spoiled children get.

Okay honey, here's mommy and daddy will get you another gift.

Oxymoron--ain't no such creature. Never was a Palestinian people, just in modern times the British chose it for the Arabs in the Jewish Homeland, and then a bunch of terrorists adopted it, only about 40 years ago. You could have called it a name without a people. And after good advertising, an easy sell, since the world didn't want to let the Jewish People return home, this instant "terror nation" was hatched in hell.

to make matters worse, during the pullout, Palestinians were thanking Israel by torching Israeli flags and chanting that they will continue the bombings. some gratitude.

It is the double speak that gets to me the most. It is not the fact that the Palestinian terrorists and politicians do it. It is the fact that the so called,"international community" willing seems to accept it. They are like useful idiots.

Although he's far more optimistic than I am about the prospects of Israel's peace partners being capable of embracing a positive, stable society, Natan Sharansky may be right to a degree about the "moderates" being intimidated about speaking up to demand sanity. Two things have been crystal clear since Israel's pullout: The mujahideen terrorists enjoy considerable power and Arafat 2 cannot and/or will not do anything about it.

Prior to 1948, the only Palestinians were Jews. If you were to look at the identity card of any Israeli who was born during the time of the British Mandate, or prior to it, it will say "Palestinian." The present day so-called Palestinians fashioned an identity for themselves that had no validity in history. But, of course, why would that stop them?

At 6:30 PM, Blogger Always On Watch said...

Yes, so make that "lobbing more and deadlier missiles."

Esther, I got this email today from a friend of mine in Australia, and I thought it was appropriate.

[GAZA CITY] After relief groups have successfully ended negotiations with the U.S. about assistance for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, the Palestinian spokesperson for the Red Crescent Society has confirmed their nation's participation in the relief effort.

"It was confirmed that at 9:15 am today, four plane-loads of volunteers from Gaza and the West Bank left Amman Intrnational Airport, bound for New Orleans, to assist with the looting!"

At 7:15 AM, Blogger Esther said...

Rachel Ann, spoiled child indeed! But when will they finally grow up?!?

Batya...hatched in hell...great way of putting it!

DM, doesn't it make you want to do so much more for them now? They truly are lethal idiots.

Gindy, that part drives me nuts too.

Patrick, I don't doubt the moderates are scared. Since many end up in jail or killed in the streets, who could blame them? But unless they do something, they are doomed.

AOW... :)

Ya had me going there til the end, Rory. ;) And good point in your previous comment about the history there.
