Exactly what is it the libs want to negotiate?

A few years back, when folks talked airily about "the Middle East peace process" and "a two-state solution," I used to say that the trouble was the Palestinians saw a two-state solution as an interim stage en route to a one-state solution. I underestimated Islamist depravity. As we now see in Gaza and southern Lebanon, any two-state solution would be an interim stage en route to a no-state solution.



In one of the most admirably straightforward of Islamist declarations, Hussein Massawi, the Hezbollah leader behind the slaughter of U.S. and French forces 20 years ago, put it this way:

"We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you."

Swell. But, suppose he got his way, what then? Suppose every last Jew in Israel were dead or fled, what would rise in place of the Zionist Entity? It would be something like the Hamas-Hezbollah terror squats in Gaza and Lebanon writ large. Hamas won a landslide in the Palestinian elections, and Hezbollah similarly won formal control of key Lebanese Cabinet ministries. But they're not Mussolini: They have no interest in making the trains run on time. And to be honest, who can blame them? If you're a big-time terrorist mastermind, it's frankly a bit of a bore to find yourself Deputy Under-Secretary at the Ministry of Pensions, particularly when you're no good at it and no matter how lavishly the European Union throws money at you there never seems to be any in the kitty when it comes to making payroll. So, like a business that's over-diversified, both Hamas and Hezbollah retreated to their core activity: Jew-killing.

Guess who says there would be no Middle East problems if he was President.
 
RW,

Oh sure, what was he going to do? Tell them to pick up a history book instead of reaching for a falafel?

Steyn's reminder of what happened at the Cairo hotel in 1971 is a nauseating clue to their congenital depravity, and unless diplomacy is a cure for mental illness, it's a worthless exercise.

I'm off on an excursion tomorrow - see you all Tuesday.
 
Buy Danish,

I can't wait to see what STMA has to say about where you are going tomorrow.
 
RW,

I thought of leaving him some clues, but just for fun I decided to let him really run free, uninhibited by any facts that might spoil his idiot stalker boy delusions.
 
Hi RW; Hi Buy Danish -- hope all is well with both of you.

BD -- are you still in NE? One of those "life is good" days today, eh?! The sky was amazing.

On subject, as much as I would like to believe and pray that war is not the answer, God gave the land to Israel. It is theirs in prosperity and turmoil, to defend and protect. There is no other argument. Hizbollah will never be sanctioned by the Lord.

As always (sigh), I find myself in God's woodshed for one thing or another -- but I do know that Israel will prevail. So it is written.

P.S. RW -- the comment from OOT earlier today? What I think of him/her is precisely why I find myself in the woodshed. Knowing nothing of that blogger except a hatred of everything and everyone, I think I can safely say he/she is not indicative of rational, thinking human beings. Nevertheless, I cannot bring myself to see any good in OOT - hence, the woodshed.

love, baby honu
 
Honu,

People like OotMVoD are fairly common among left wingers on political blogs, but fortunately they aren't that common in society at large.

I just heard a guest journalist on Fox News saying that Israel was systematically destroying Lebanon for no reason and the world was just standing by letting it happen. It's unbelievable that someone that is supposed to be in the know can hold that view. I worry a lot more about people like that than an idiot blog stalker that seems to have no other life than badgering a few of us.
 
RW -- one other thing that is really making me angry. Doesn't matter the news source or journalist, all written stories blame Israel's reaction on the "taking of two soldiers". Never mentioning the other eight that hizbollah murdered at the same time. If that's not a provocation or grounds for retaliation, I don't know what is. Yet, as you say, those who are purportedly in the know are the very ones distorting this fact. I guess I just never realized how many anti-semitics (what else can you call them?) are still in existence today.
 
Honu,

Here's an interesting story that Buy Danish found
 
RW -- thanks - reading it now.

And here's an interesting viewpoint (from the UK no less) regarding hateful, vengeful people on blogs. Have no idea this gentleman's political views or even what this site is, but it sure explains a lot about OOT, et al. Sorry - don't know how you do the blue thing (smile), but I think you can cut and paste this.

why_are_people_arseholes_onlin.html
 
RW -- the answer to when will they ever learn is never. I couldn't have said it better myself.

The guy Richard Cohen that the author refers to writes for the Washington Post -- I read his column on line from time to time. He had a great one earlier in the year (you'll love it) "Hillary, who the hell are you" or close to that, referencing her plantation remarks. It's really funny - he does have a sense of humor, but as evidenced in David's article, no grasp on reality.
 
Honu,

That was pretty interesting. Honu's link

But the first paragraph of the first comment summed the whole thing up.

People are arseholes online because they are arseholes offline. People who are not arseholes offline do not suddenly become arseholes online. Nor can people who are arseholes offline maintain the charade for long, online. The truth will out.
 
Amen, RW! You can use that as your quote at the top of your home page!

What's the saying, once bitten, twice shy? I am NOT clicking on that link that you just posted on the home page -- yep, I learned my lesson on the 11th (smile!)

Nice chatting with you this evening -- thank you for the enlightening article. I am off for the next two weeks (no planes!) See you tomorrow --

baby honu
 
Honu,

Goodnight! The warning this time is a joke though. It's safe to click on it.
