All the champagne bottles are popping, and the media are just thrilled. There has been a cease-fire called in Israel!
Funny thing: I didn't realize that the terrorist groups were party to these suicidal road-map talks. The media reports are brilliant. They have marvelled at the Palestinian organizations' (read: Hamas, Islamic Jihad, PFLP, AMB, etc.) generous surrender of their suicide belts. They have become poets in describing the huge historic step this has been, because it certainly has never happened before, right? And one journalist reminded us that we should not be comfortable yet, as the IDF still controls much of the Palestinian territories. You know, the territories that Israel captured when her loving neighbors threatened her existence? Those "Palestinian" territories are still crawling with the IDF, which, you know, might inflame the otherwise innocent Palestinians who would be studying to become doctors, but instead are learning the art of bomb-making.
So now begins a countdown. I guarantee that this worthless, meaningless hudna will not last (hell, it's already failed). Those terrorist organizations that our media love to legitimize are simply cleaning out their guns and putting their belts under the bed for now, while accumulating more ammunition and explosives materials for the imminent continuation of their Jihad. This has happenend before, and is just part and parcel of the never-ending charade of the Palestinians who want nothing less than everything. They continue to play the Americans and other westerners for fools, and the media are eating it up.
Let's not forget that, according to many, especially the bleeding hearts who think that Israel is the big bully on the playground, it's aaaaaaaall Israel's fault. Because they are the "strong" ones. Because they should be taking the punches, while trying to understand why they are being punched. Because they are but a teeeny-weeeeny percentage in terms of the size and number of their foes.... oh, wait, that's a moot point to the bleeding hearts.
Our friends at the Palestinian/Islamist terrorist mouthpiece Al-Guardian, in Jew-loathing Europe, have published yet another glowing, unbiased piece:
This could be considered satire, only it's "real" journalism [all emphasis added]:
This is typical reporting from the media, and the Guardian is living up to its own standards. As long as the situation is reported in this manner, people will never really understand the real issues. Notice how anything that Israel does is met with cynicism. Nowhere in this article do they mention the murder of hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians, but every chance they get, they mention the "plight of the Palestinians".
There will be no peace until the PA cracks down (with a very heavy hand) on those terrorist groups, instead of just the usual "negotiation". There will be no peace as long as Arafat continues to undermine all efforts. We can hope that his time will soon be up, either by a natural death or a bullet to the head. And there will be no peace as long as the "civilized" world continues to expect Israel to negotiate with those who kill her innocent citizens, or as long as the world thinks they know what's best and continues to pressure her into doing things that we would never do. That also goes with condemning Sharon for doing exactly what we are doing in Afghanistan and Iraq right now. Hypocrisy at its worst.
Still pessimistic. The countdown begins.
