A Jewish 'Militant'?

Today a shameful act happened where a Jewish person shot and killed four Israeli-Arabs aboard a bus in the town of Shfaram. A terrorist act serving as a huge chillul Hashem.

In response, Israeli politicians clamber all over each to issue strong-worded statements condemning the act as "a sinful act by a bloodthirsty terrorist."

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon issued a statement calling the attack "a criminal act of a bloodthirsty terrorist targeting innocent Israeli civilians." Wow. I don't think I've heard him speak so strongly when it's an Arab doing the killing. I guess we won't be passing out sweets.

Not to belittle the need for condemnation here, but when have you ever seen any Arab politician or spokesperson condemning the killing of Jews? The most you'll get is a statement of regret for an incident "not in the interest of the Palestinian cause". This shooting definately didn't help the Jewish cause.

The fact of the matter is, we as Jews feel sorry for this. When Jews get killed, the Arabs thirst for more.

On a related note, Hadash MK Muhammad Barakei, who had joined the mobs in Shfaram, blamed the attack on what he said was a campaign of incitement by Jews against Arabs. "This is not the act of a single individual extremist," Barakei said. "It comes from a culture of incitement."

"Culture of incitement"? It takes one to know one buddy.

I was watching cnn and this pa creep starts to blame attack on racist literature promulgated by the israeli educaiton system. Evidently, arab politicos get their talking points from haaretz editorials.

Yes. It does deserve condemnation. No arguments there. I'm just sick of being the nice guy on the block and played for the idiot.

Any Arab politician who tries parlaying this into some double-speak should be called on his words. If there's a PA politician starting to talk about the "Israeli racist literature", the Israeli politicians should take a brief break from apologizing, pull their head out of his ass and respond saying how this person has nerve when the PA CONSTANTLY promotes racism and violence.

Israeli's have the moral right to apologize. The palestinians have only earned the right to keep their mouth's shut.

From "the sands on the beach" to this writing, who knew you were so eloquent?

whatchoo talking about? "Sands on the beach" was a GEM! The objective was not to sound eloquent or smart, but to make you laugh. And it worked. For a long time.
