Since this is a "minor war," the Israelis should only be using pointed sticks and broom handles.
There is no other way for the Palestinians to push back those mountains, apart from martyrdom operations.
Translation: "We cannot fight effectively against these imagined offenses, so we justify our murder by pretending it is just 'asymmetric warfare.'"
She’s also fugly, in a manly sort of way.
There goes her child support...
