Lest We Forget…

Lest We Forget…


From Haaretz Daily:

Four Israelis were killed when a Palestinian suicide bomber detonated explosives in a car after nightfall Thursday at the entrance to the West Bank settlement of Kedumim, located west of Nablus.

The vehicle blew up around 9:45 P.M. next to the Kedumim gas station. Security forces sealed roads in the area immediately in the wake of the attack.

A new group linked to Fatah, the party headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, claimed responsibility for the attack. The group, from the Balata refugee camp in nearby Nablus, called itself Kateb al-Shahid Chamuda and identified the bomber as Mahmoud Masharka, 24, from the West Bank city of Hebron.

And here’s some more about Abbas and how much sway he holds over Palestine:

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas phoned Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert Thursday to congratulate him on his election victory, but after the conversation there was no announcement of any plans for a meeting.

According to a statement issued by Olmert’s office, Abbas, currently on a trip to South Africa, said he hoped that Olmert would succeed in forming a coalition as soon as possible. Abbas also placed a congratulatory call to Shimon Peres.

If you’ve ever wondered why we support Israel, just look at who’s on top in Palestine and you’ll understand.

    No matter how much Israel concedes to Palestine it is never enough. Even if the whole West Bank was surrendered, IMO, the Palestinians would keep on killing. Democracy took one in the corn hole when Hamas was voted in.

    “If you’ve ever wondered why we support Israel, just look at who’s on top in Palestine and you’ll understand”

    Total non sequitur

    American “support” (I prefer sponsorship or patronage) of Israel predates the actual formation of MSOI. If MSOI had not been created in the way that it was after WW2, the Levant would now probably be the inverse of the present situation.

    It would be equally a propos to state that your support for Israel is based on the fact that they have been good teachers in how to wage war in the Middle East…

    As for who is on top in Israel, take a look some time through the bio’s of Sharon, and Begin, and Netenyahu, Dayan and some of the other major players of the past 40 years… There is as much blood on their hands.
