I have been thinking a great deal about the Middle East lately. More so than usual. Especially about the Jews who are dying almost daily at the hands of suicide bombers, and murderers who jump out of the shadows to gun down innocent people. Men women and children.
I am also thinking about the duplicity of Arafat, and the elitist lies which flow freely from the lips of the privileged Palestinian class, such as those from Hannah Ashwari, the Palestinian spokesperson who waxes so eloquently about the plight of the “poor” Palestinians at the hands of the horrible “terrorist” Israelis.
And when I think about all of this, I come to the conclusion, that a society which encourages their children to attack armed troops, praise young people who commit suicide as part of the act of murdering innocents, and then spend their life-force fomenting hatred, are all pretty much deserving of the pain they receive. And even more so.
But; what they, the Palestinians are getting is not the fault of the Israelis, the West or anyone else but themselves. Civilized people do not teach and preach hatred. They do not want to be led by a dictator. They do not close their eyes to massive corruption. They do not cheer masked thugs who fire machine guns into the air at funerals of people who are “martyred” in the act of committing murder. This is not what good people do.
The Palestinians remind me of the old style professional wrestlers. Remember when the bad guy would hide an “object” in his trunks, and when the referee wasn’t looking, he would take it out and use it to rake the eyes of his opponent.
Everyone in the world saw what the bad guy did, with the exception of the referee. In spite of all the screaming fans.
And when confronted by the referee, the bad guy, who by this time had already re-hidden his “object” back in his trunks, would feign innocence and play the role of the victim, while a henchman for the bad guy would pound on the other wrestler while the bad guy had the attention of the referee.
And again; no matter how loudly the fans hollered, the referee was still oblivious to what was really happening behind his back.
This is very much like the Palestinians. On one hand, they cry to the entire world how innocent and oppressed they are; while on the other hand, they pull an “object” from their trunks with which to debilitate their opponent, in the belief that the world can not see.
And very much like the old days of professional wrestling, many people are willing to be fooled by the “poor beleaguered” Palestinians who re-hide the “object” when confronted. Even though Jewish bodies and body parts lay strewn on the pavement of shopping plazas, pizza parlors, discotheques, market places, bus stops, schools, airports, and wherever else the horror of terrorism has smeared Jewish blood on the landscape of humanity.
The Palestinians will always be able to fool the people who want to be fooled. But; that will not change the reality.
Under present circumstances, they, the Palestinians are very bad people, just like the bad guys in the bygone days of professional wrestling. And just like in the days gone by; inevitably, the bad guys eventually lose.
One day, Israel is going to say enough is enough, and put a bloody end to this masquerade; whether the referee wakes up and finally sees the “object” or not.
And when that day comes, the only people who will be responsible for the carnage will be the people who have been pretending that the world can not see the truth.
