    Good trope. The Palestinians and Israelis are both now targeting children, but there aren’t many playgrounds.


    This is Ramadan, when Muslims in Arabia do not eat or drink or put anything in their mouths (including cigarettes) from about 4 am until 7:30 pm. Then from 7:30 pm until 4 am, they eat and drink lots of water and pray. The Palestinian child grabbed and burned was sitting in front of a mosque when a car was filmed driving by and grabbing the child.


    We don’t have film of the Israeli children being grabbed, we only know they were killed shortly after being grabbed, so the word ‘kidnapping’ that kept appearing in the news seems less appropriate than ‘murder’.

    And the cycle of abuse is continued by both sides.

    Sadly, NeoconMan is continuing a tradition that dates from the origin of organized religions. There is no thought, just mindless hatred. So sad…

    The Palestinian leadership condemned the murder of the Israeli children (OK, they had a gun to their heads). And the Israeli leadership condemned the murder of the Arab child and promised to punish those responsible, but did nothing about it (of course, they did kill lots of Palestinians in retaliation for the three murdered Israeli children).


    So clearly the leadership that’s on the side of G_d and justice is…

    Thank you, Molon Labe, for noting some of the history of Israel. Ma’alot seemed to hit especially hard, and IIRC, the Israelis became even more determined to protect their children. They haven’t always been successful, but I suspect that without their efforts, there would have been far more dead Israeli children.

    I can’t think of anything more likely to strengthen determination, and exacerbate hatred, than to attack people’s children.

    How can anyone expect either side to think and act rationally when each side has been teaching its children to hate the other side for centuries!

    Suffer the children indeed, just like when Zionist terrorists bombed British school kids in the 1920’s. There hasn’t been a civilized “good guy” in this fight since Abraham set it in motion.

    Much truth is said in sarcasm.

    To be honest, there hasn’t been a “gpood guy” in just about any conflict since H. sapiens started moving off the east African coast some 75000years ago. (We were probably not killing each other when there were only a 2000 or so breeding pairs.) But once there were enough of us to make tribes, the Me and Mine vs Thee and Thine came in big time, and it’s been that way ever since. It is not unique to the Middle East.

    NeoconMan is a liberal masquerade as a cartoonish conservative but sometimes his true colors shine through since the left is usually anti-Israel.
