This appeared on Yahoo this morning. In my last post, I made the suggestion that the Palestinian people are largely supportive of the hate group that rules them in Gaza, Hamas. The linked piece seems to support that notion. The poll shows a 60+% favoring of the Hamas leader for president over Abbas. This demonstrates a choice for the greater of two evils. In what parallel universe does one say to one's self, "I choose the guy who insists on using me as a human shield as he constantly lobs missiles at those he insists is my enemy. I LIKE that idea!! I'm voting for HIM?" It's happening in the parallel universe we call "Gaza".
Take off the kid gloves. Such a people is not worth risking the lives of Israeli soldiers as they seek to end the TOTALLY UNPROVOKED ATTACKS on their fellow Israelis.
This poll should be held up for the world to see (especially given that it was taken by a Palestinian) as Israel tables their surgical military tactics intended to lessen collateral damage, so that they can more effectively kill as many Hamas leaders and subordinates it takes to make them stop attacking Israel once and for all. Nothing Israel has ever done to the sad and innocent Palestinians was not preceded by heinous and hateful actions against them by the Palestinians.
Right now, we are seeing another example of the intention of the worst elements of islam, as ISIS and their cowardly cohorts just hacked off the head of another innocent victim. Their "message" is that it is the result of Obama's actions in the Middle East. It is the same kind of crap Hamas says about why they continue to attack Israel. It is amongst their favorite propaganda. When will the world be fed up with this crap?
I have seen videos and articles highlighting muslims who speak out against the insane members of their culture/religion. Unfortunately, the percentage of such stand up people amongst the savages is less then the percentage of homosexuals. This means that we can't wait for "good" muslims to successfully alter the culture there. As far as I'm concerned, they are free to align themselves with us or Israel as we bring the pain. That is, if we, as a nation, ever grow a spine.
