Because Monsters Are Always Monsters

From the "a zebra can't change its stripes" department comes this lovely story.

Hamas officials say 271 Palestinians have been killed and 600 wounded since Israel began its aerial assault on the Gaza Strip on Saturday, but none of the injured have yet left via Rafah.

Egypt has helicopters and doctors on standby at the Rafah crossing.
There are also up to 40 ambulances waiting to go into Gaza to bring out the most seriously wounded. Tonnes of medical supplies have arrived at the nearby airport of El-Arish.

But the Egyptian authorities say that, at the moment, they have no-one to treat.

Egypt's Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said the wounded were "barred from crossing" and he blamed "those in control of Gaza" for putting the lives of the injured at risk.

The same terrorist organization that Palestinians and leftists worldwide cheer for targeting innocent Israelis for death on a daily basis is now barring their own civilians from getting medical care in hopes of converting their wounded into dead—wailing processions for the media's cameras are the only effective anti-aircraft weapons in Hamas arsenal.

Gazans fail at killing, and when the are killed in response, they kill the survivors. If there has ever been an entire population that is pathological than this one, I'd be interested in knowing who they were. Various Palestinian factions seem intent on this conflict continuing until one side or the other is completely wiped out.

And most times, they don't even seem to care which side.

Who is more pathological? Try the US Congress, who after damaged the economy by throwing good money after bad in Social Security, ruined the economy by doing the same thing in the Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae mortgage scam. But don't worry, they have a cure; They will throw good money after bad in a trillion dollar stimulus package.

But they will, of course, increase taxes, because they need the money...

In the defense of congress they are merely co-opting the government to commit random acts of theft, rather than random acts of murder. Alas, the progression from lies, to theft, to enslavement, to torture, to murder will continue as we continue on the path of socialism.

Non sequitor in the house. So Don's argument is that Hamas isn't preventing their wounded from being treated, because he doesn't like US Congres?

That doesn't follow.

The mindset of Gaza is just insane. They were pretty boastful about throwing away the cease-fire, but I don't think they considered that cease-fires restrict both sides.

Hamas asked for it and now they're getting it. They really want to raise casualties amoung civilians to garner sympathy.....but at the rate muz have been pissing off the whole world, I wonder how much sympathy they'll get outside of liberal enclaves. Regular real people are cheering! Rock on Israel!!!

Is it true that Hamas has legalized crucifiction???

Hamas is a group of cowardly terrorists who hide behind children and women, and they refuse to allow the injured civilians any medical aid, I am not surprised.

If crucification has been legalized then I must admit I am surprised and I wonder who they want to crucify.

My prayers are with Israel.

Not pathological, just evil. They chose to be led by evil, and they gave themselves over to hatred and violence. If there is ever a clearer line between good and evil than between Israel and the Palestinians, I don't know what is.

Am Digest links to a Belmont Club piece saying what's said above ... only suggests there is a whole network of those who can't afford to see the conflicts end.

Perhaps so after watching this fiasco most of my life!

Few people today realize just who the so-called Paletstinians are. There is not now, nor has there ever existed a sovereign state known as Palestine.

The people who call themselves Palestinians today are the descendants of violent terrorists who refused (and still refuse) to accept Israel's right to exist. Most left Israel after its formation and sought refuge in places like Jordan. However, they turned out to be so violent and troublesome that Jordan didn't want anything to do with them and kicked them out.

Their former leader wasn't even from the Trans-Jordan (what eventually became Israel). Arafat was an Egyptian.

Golda Meier said it best, "When the Palestinians love their children more than they hate the Jews, there will be peace".

This just became news when Israel started defending itself. Where was the media when the terrorists were bombing Israel??

Oh yeah...That's an easy one:

North Korea

Read Aquariums of Pyongyang and Reluctant Communist.

A well-sourced major motion picture about that screwed up nation would end up having credibility problems, because it would seem too much like fiction.

Really - read those books.

You'd think The Holocaust taught the world community some lessons --- I didn't...

One thing you can say for Hammas as opposed to Fatah or nearly any other gub in the ME, they were elected. And they did not conceal their nature from the electorate, nor was Fatah pitching Zionism or anything like it as an alternative. The Palistinians so-called did not merely vote for violence against Israel they chose the most violent faction of the jihadis on offer. To hell with the Palistinians, one and all. Let Israel bomb them from the border to the sea. When they have had enough of that let them demonstrate their good will by, say, declining to bomb Israel for six solid months. Failing this, drive them back where they came from; Jordan, Egypt and other dusty preserves of Islamic despoliation with lead and fire. They have aspired to nothing but the destruction of Israel, the murder of her babies, torture of her men and rape of her women. Kill them first. Kill them worse.

"One thing you can say for Hammas as opposed to Fatah or nearly any other gub in the ME, they were elected."

So were Hitler and the National Socialist German's Workers Party (NAZIs)...

I've been watching a lot of the main news channels and I noticed this didn't become news until Israel retaliated. Now it's a freakin' massacre? Where in the hell was the MSM when Hamas rained down rockets on Israel?
I just about can't stand it anymore- my grandma would say this right before she flung both hands in the air.

>Who is more pathological? Try the US Congress

No, Hamas just legalized crucifixion.
