There are times to feel deep sadness. One quietly breaks down in tears at a funeral. But the murder of the three innocent Israeli teens should not engender sadness as much as it should anger, even quiet controlled rage. And the rage well may be targeted not so much at the Other but at our own, those who should have known better.
The Koran compares Jews to monkeys and apes. The Arab population of Gaza, in a free and democratic election certified as fair by Jimmy Carter, selected Hamas to be their representatives and voice.
The Arab population of Judea and Samaria are comfortable being led by two terrorist movements, Hamas and the Palestine Authority of Mahmoud Abbas. Mahmoud Abbas is a terrorist in a suit. He is known by an underground war name, Abu Mazen. A Cat in a Hat still is a cat. A Terrorist in a Suit still is a terrorist. All because he has white hair and spectacles, now in his seventies, does not mean that he is less of a terrorist. It just means that he is a terrorist who probably wakes up in the morning with a sore back, some septuagenarian thoracic spondylosis.
Ever since its creation, the Palestinian Authority continues educating its population to hate Jews and to want us dead. They run summer camps for children where, instead of baseball and arts & crafts, they teach children to shoot rifles and to kill Jews. Their television and radio advocates destroying Israel. Their newspapers run crossword puzzles that negate Zionism. Their children's television "Sesame Street"-type characters advocate killing Jews. They name streets and avenues and town squares for people who kill Jews. This is who they are, what they are.

The article said ... “Sometimes someone must say “No.” The Government of Israel repeatedly has failed to say “No” when conscience demanded saying “No.” Too many times, Israel has acceded to demands, pressed by American Presidents and Secretaries of State, to release hundreds upon hundreds of convicted murderers and other convicted violent felons in their hundreds in exchange for the release of an Israeli hostage or two or three. No sane country least of all, America exchanges murderers whom it has arrested for hostages.”
UNFORTUNATELY for the “story” that this article is trying to present here ... the USA did NOT pressure Israel to to trade ONE THOUSAND ISLAMIC TERRORISTS for just ONE ISRAELI SOLDIER.
Israel (the public and the government) did that all by themselves!
Israel has come a long way since Ben Gurion, Menachem Begin and even Golda Meir and its going in the wrong direction like this nation when it comes to the ability to defend its borders and sovereignty.
