UPDATE: 8/18, from Drudge: Israeli Riot Police Storm Gaza Synagogue
UPDATE: 8/18 4pm EST from WND: Settlers concede: 'We lost the battle'
I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around this madness on the Gaza Strip.
One thing that isn't difficult to understand is that this plan that may have appeased some political leaders, is only going to further legitimize the method of terrorism as a political tool to twist the arms of sissies with bureaucratic power.
How long until the Commandos are unleashed... or are they already?
And after the Jews are expelled from the West Bank and Gaza Strip...
(which aren't the same place- which is news to the moron news anchors who are only trained to read teleprompters)
...and all the greenhouses, agricultural fields, and industries are turned over to the Palestinians, as thanks for not setting off as many suicide bombs as they presumably could have I guess, what's going to happen to these areas?
Is the Palestinian 'leadership' truly going to attempt in the setting up of a peaceful nation living side by side with its natural born enemy? Get real, of course not. The Palestinian Leadership is as fractured amongst itself as they are against the State of Israel.
Killing Jews is the only thing that unites them.
Good thing though that the great General Sharon, who was put in office to avoid exactly what is going on right now, is taking a page from the infuriating American politicians playbook by feeling 'heartbroken'. How reassuring.
Apparently some Jews feel as if they're left with no other recourse...
Nidam said the woman who burned herself carried a sign reading, "Impose a closure on the media, destroy the disengagement, put Sharon before a military court."
