Final Solution To the Palestinian Question


I've always wondered when the endgame for Palestine would come. I didn't think it would be this soon, but this has the distinct possibility of being the end of an entire culture.

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade has allegedly claimed that it has, and is willing to use, chemical weapons against targets in Israel.

This means one of two things is true:

They actually have the weapons. I don't believe this for one second.

Or this is really it. What we all knew has been coming for over 50 years. The extermination of the Palestinian people.

I don't have the room, the time, or the heart to link or write about the Israeli habit of setting up Palestinians as the paper tiger only to set them aflame. If this gets as bad as it has the potential to be, it's really not going to matter anyway.

The right blogs are already trumpeting the cover story for the coming conflagration:

The Palestinians have just tipped us off to where the WMD went, and now we know where at least some it may have ended up. The Israelis may not be alone in marching through Gaza and the West Bank.

The lamppost stands with folded arms
Its iron claws attached
To curbs 'neath holes where babies wail
Though it shadows metal badge
All and all can only fall
With a crashing but meaningless blow
No sound ever comes from the Gates of Eden.

-Bob Dylan

UPDATE: Well, this seems to be the wierdest thing in a very long line of weirdness regarding the media. Nonbody, that I can find, is covering this story, save for the few right-wing blogs that believe this to be a gift from Gawd.

I would think that the story of a "terrorist" group threatening to fire chemical and biological weapons into Israel would be front page kind of stuff.

The silence is disturbing.

The news now is that Hamas is holding an IDF soldier captured on Sunday in an attack on an outpost near Gaza. Hamas is demanding that women and children in Israeli jails be released in exchange for news on the captured soldier who was reportedly wounded in the attack.

Oh those bloodthirsty Hamas Islamoterrorsuperfascists! How dare they demand the release of women and children? Have they no shame?

i can't believe that the Europeans - or the whole Middle East - can tolerate that - and i have to admit, i don't want to believe to be forced to watch another genocide

Holy hyperbole, Batman! You can't "kidnap" a soldier, it's called being a prisoner of war. To be fair, since Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib are filled with non-soldiers, their prisoners could properly be termed kidnap victims.

When in history has any country invaded another over a single POW? What's the REAL motivation? A country actively lobbying for the destruction of Iran faces a certain counterattack should Iran be attacked; moving its military equipment into a densely populated Muslim region would ensure Israel's weaponry would be secure from any counterattack by virture of millions of Muslim human shields. This isn't about a kidnapped soldier: it's a prelude to the attack on Iran.

Man this sucks -
blowing up powerplants and all just for one prisoner.
Lets just quietly stand by and watch this as well.
