Are we Doing Enough for the Palestinians?

While Israeli truckloads of goods were pouring into Gaza, Khaled Mashaal stood and vowed to annihilate Israel.

But the Government of Israel and the IDF have gone a giant step beyond that g’morah. They take pride in their religious fulfillment of the mitzvah of honoring your enemy, honoring the rocket launchers who bombs your women and children, honoring the thug who lurks in the dark, ambushing your unsuspecting motorists, honoring the gangs who drag dead bodies of supposed “collaborators” tied to their motorcycles, honoring the suicide bomber who floods your streets with rivers of blood.

God help us. We came to this country to establish a Jewish state, and we end up practicing the tenets of Christianity: loving our enemies and turning the other cheek.

We give them free electricity, we cut our own water supply and give it to them, and now we feed and clothe them. And their response is, spoken so eloquently by the only real leader of the Palestinian people, Khaled Mashaal, on december 8, while a thousand Israeli trucks were rolling in to cater his event:

“Today is Gaza. Tomorrow will be Ramallah and after that Jerusalem then Haifa and Jaffa,” he said.

Here’s your sandal, Sir, may I have another?

    Yes, Islamists can be so beautiful, loving and while whispering sweet nothings in your ear, they give you a big hug as they stick their knife in your back. Until you have lived here for a while and experience the shattering of your bubble of trust by your daughter and friend being blown to pieces while eating a pizza, poison in your food, rocks thrown at you so as to kill, being watched so that your house gets broken into and goods stolen before you return home after less than 30 minutes from the time that you left and the list goes on. And to think that they speak peace is an illusion for the time being for in time this illusion will turn into a delusion. If one still thinks they mean peace, then he may as well accept their religion for it is based on delusions.

    I would never give them credit to call these terrorists "Palestinians". Why give the father of modern day terrorism credit? Araputz (my terminology) called itself a Palestinian when it was an Egyptian/Libyan. Up to 1964 they were either Syrians, Egyptians or Arabs. A Palestinian was either a Jew or Christian living there. Yet the media and others are giving credit to Araputz by calling people who wish to kill and hurt innocents Palestinians. That in itself is an insult to the true Palesitnians. By the way, I will never understand the Chamberlain ideology that Israel is using in doing for the enemy of humanity by supporting it. Let the other 26 "Arab" countries support the savages.
