Diversion From AIPAC To Address Stupid Article
I have to ask, WTF? So I’m checking out this article that says the Jericho raid was a blow to Abu Mazen’s prestige. WHAT?? And what was this smack?
"What happened is an unforgivable crime and an insult to the Palestinian people," Abbas said as he toured the complex.
If I’m not mistaken, for the last week or two, I’ve seen article after article with Abu Mazen threatening to release Israeli Cabinet Minister Rehavam Zeevi’s killers while at the same time saying he couldn’t guarantee what Israel would do if that release were to happen. I remember thinking, “Wow, he’s letting everyone know that if they’re released, Israel can/will kill them. Interesting.” But if he didn’t want Israel to take matters into their own hands, why constantly say you plan to release these men?
But what’s more, why the hell is AP accepting Mazen’s rhetoric of being “shocked” or “upset” about it all? And saying this “weakened” him as a leader is ridiculous. It’s like calling someone very dead. Once you’re dead, you can’t be very dead. Mazen has never proven to be anything but weak. Then again, I expect Mazen to be brazen with his inane rhetoric. I just didn’t realize AP wouldn’t mind looking galactically stupid.
