To the vile and disgusting antisemitic International Herald Tribune that depicts Israel's disengagement as "drama" - yeah that's what they called it "drama" (well it is owned by The New York
Slime Times and the Washington Post*) to wit I submit the following question-
Who is is the real inciter of violence?
Whos is really aiding and abetting the terrorists? The fifth column.
Read the following from the IHT story;
Of course, Palestinians didn't miss the context. Talk in our living rooms and over Turkish coffee at the office has been mixed:
"Do you think they were acting?"
or this gem
Another network countered such images with an interview with the parents of Muhammad al-Dura, the 12-year-old boy who was photographed dying in his father's arms in 2000 and whose image has become a symbol of the intifada. But for the most part, the language on the broadcasts has been accurate and straightforward
accurate and straightforward you say ?the Palis killed him!- Atlas
Mind you NO MENTION IS MADE IN THE TRIBUNE THAT THE AL DURA CHARADE WAS ALL A SET UP, A HOAX . The case involved the alleged Israeli killing of a 12-year-old Palestinian boy and the severe wounding of his father at Gaza's Netzarim Junction in September 2000.Never mentioning that it was a staged event.Proved to subsequently be a hoax.
Killed by his own people................
To all this I counter with the following:
The mother of a child who had been killed by terrorists had locked herself in his room, together with gasoline tanks that she threatened to ignite. Another family whose son, an Israeli naval commando, had fallen in Lebanon, was also hesitating to leave.
- The severest test of one battalion's fortitude - and humaneness - occurred in Badolah's synagogue, where the settlers were afforded an hour of parting prayer. But after two hours waiting in the blistering sun, the soldiers decided to enter. The scene that greeted them was shocking: settlers clutching the pews, the Ark and the Torah scrolls, or writhing on the floor. The troops tried to comfort them, only to break down themselves, and soon soldiers and settlers were embracing in mutual sorrow and consolation.
- Ultimately, the settlers were either escorted or carried, sobbing, onto buses. But their rabbi, stressing the need for closure, requested permission to address the soldiers, and the battalion commander remarkably agreed. So it happened that 500 troops and 100 settlers stood at attention, with Israeli flags fluttering, while the rabbi spoke of the importance of channeling this sorrow into the creation of a more loving and ethical society. "We are all still one people, one state," he said. Together, the evicted and the evictors, then sang "Hatikvah," the national anthem - "The Hope."
Only one little quibble with this. The Washington Post sold its share of the International Herald Tribune to the NY Times last year. So the WaPo no longer is affiliated with that paper.
My bad (they owned it forever but no more, just slime owned now)
