Official Egyptian paper:
Killing kids OK
Says Palestinian suicide attacks should be blamed on Israelis
© 2004 WorldNetDaily.com
An editorial in an Egyptian government newspaper asserted suicide bombings are legitimate even if children are killed.
The daily Al-Masaa praised suicide operations, calling on Palestinian organizations to not publish the names of the bombers so that their families' houses would not be demolished, according a translation provided by the Washington, D.C.-based monitor Middle East Media Research Institute.
The editorial came amid debate in the Arab media over the dispatching of a mother by the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Reem Al-Riyashi, who left behind two toddlers, hid a bomb underneath her robe at a Gaza border crossing, killing four Israelis.
In a farewell video, Riyashi said,"It was always my wish to turn my body into deadly shrapnel against the Zionists and to knock on the doors of heaven with the skulls of Zionists."
The Egyptian daily said, "We have no argument regarding the question of the legitimacy of these operations, because they are considered a powerful weapon used by the Palestinians against an enemy with no morality or religion, [an enemy] who has deadly weapons prohibited by international law, that is not deterred from using them against the defenseless Palestinian people."
The paper asserted even if civilians or children are killed in the suicide operation, "the blame does not fall upon the Palestinians, but on those who forced them to turn to this modus operandi."
"Ultimately, we should bless every Palestinian man or woman who goes calmly to carry out a martyrdom operation, in order to receive a reward in the Hereafter, sacrificing her life for her religion and her homeland and knowing that she will never return from this operation," Al Masaa said.
The paper said, however, it questions the Palestinian organizations' practice of publishing the names of the people who carry out the attacks.
Publishing the names, Al Masaa said, "is a valuable gift that the Palestinian resistance gives the Zionist entity, since as soon as it receives this gift, the armies of the [Zionist] entity hasten to the home of the martyr's family, wounded by the loss of its son, in order to multiply its pain by destroying its home."
Really? I must have missed seeing the mushroom clouds over Palestine on CNN.
Actually, that might solve a few problems and shut some people up.
200 years from now, I want their children's children's children's children
to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead
because their legends tell of fire from the sky.
I want them to hide in dark caves and holes in the earth,
shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines
because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters
crawling over the earth, spitting death and destruction.
I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with
"If you don't behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you",
and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obesience.
I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology
will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea
.. the powerful 'Mericans .. destroyed their forefathers' wickedness.

Not that I disagree, but at least they have a "cause". Our citizens kill infants because they're an inconvenience. I think if we examined attitudes toward the sanctity of life, we could lay that accusation on Liberals, too.
Exxon Mobil is in the oil business today, but they may end up in the fuel cell business tomorrow. It amazes me that the ignorant liberals aren't singing their praises, instead of blasting Exxon Mobil at every turn.
