I’d like to say there were someone, somewhere, on the face of the planet who would be surprised at this story.

I know better.

The key word is missing here. “Some”.

Sergey, the culture is broken.

When murderers are feted as heroes, it is safe to say the society is broken. There are entire political parties predicated on bigotry, racism and hate and terror is considered an acceptable form of pro forma political expression.

This is not to say the Palestinians are wholly to blame- they are not. They have been manipulated by a self serving, dysfunctional leadership. They too have been victimized. Nevertheless, we live in a smaller, evidenced by recent events in the region.

No matter how you slice it, the vast majority of Palestinians would rather kill Jews than have their own state. If that weren’t true, they too would have taken to the streets in opposition to the tyranny they have been subjected to.

re: #3 researchok

Except for the last para, this is what I’ve said in another thread, so I obviously agree (again, except for the last para). The word is still missing though.

Sergey-

I have no doubt there are those who are as disgusted as you and I at the turn of of events.

Nevertheless, my last paragraph is the singular conclusion that can- and must be drawn.

There are democrats in Iran who resist the mullahs who have taken to the streets in opposition to their leaders and the regime which sucks the oxygen out of them. It happened in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Bahrain and even to some extent in Saudi Arabia.

The priorities in those nations is markedly different from the Palestinians. The proof is in the pudding.

re: #5 Alouette

In Gaza, a Hamas official applauded the attack and local residents celebrated the killing of the settlers.

Terror as an acceptable form of legitimate political expression.

Nice.

re: #6 researchok

Sorry, I don’t find that that conclusion is based on facts. More like simplistic analogies and overgeneralization. I don’t want to argue about it in this thread though, so I’m outta here.

Actually, these conclusions are predicated on sound psychological principles. There is nothing new or profound with these conclusions. The observations and conclusions have been seen many times before.

Please understand my critique is not predicated on the ethnic, religious or cultural grounds. What has happened in the Middle East is the result of manipulative and dysfunctional leadership and nothing else. The abuse suffered by the Palestinians at the hands of their leadership is nothing less than stunning.

Consider this: The Arab world (with a few minor outliers) had absolutely nothing to do with the Holocaust. They were in the position to point their fingers at the Christian world and say. “What have you done?”

Instead, Arab tyrannies have aligned themselves with the perpetrator of these crimes and have coined the common refrain, ‘We’ll finish what Hitler started”. I could go on but you get the point.

See these for some behavioral insights:

Birth of a Nation, A Garden Blooms

Temptations and Choices

The Poison

The Promise

The Third Rail Of Palestinan Failure

These have nothing to do with Islam, but rather the dysfunction that has enveloped the Arab world and how religion has been co opted by these tyrannies as tool to be used to manipulate entire populations.
