re: #1 Vicious Babushka

Celebrating the death of innocent civilians is sick beyond words. I hate, hate, hate that they mix it with religion. It's evil, it's wrong on every level.

There's a Sufi story from Rumi or Hafez, I don't remember which, but a wazir comes up to his king and tells him he has good news. The king asks what it is and the wazir informs him that one of his enemies is dead. The king replies, "How is this good news? Unless you've come to tell me that I and my loved ones will not also meet the same fate one day, then it's not something to celebrate."

We are ALL going to die one day.

This, unfortunately, is the sickness that continues and will likely continue to stand in the way of truly resolving this conflict. Rather than handing out sweets to children to celebrate an attack that intentionally targets and kills or injures civilians, or glorifying terrorists who intentionally target and murder children by naming town squares, schools and community centers after them, the Palestinian leadership must teach the lesson of the tale you recite to their youth. And the rest of the world must stop giving them a free pass, as has been done for the two decades since Oslo, for failing to do so.

To paraphrase the late Golda Meir, until hatred of Jews is replaced in the lexicon with love for self and hope for a peaceful future, there sadly will be no peace, only temporary lulls between war.

A legend from Palestine of the olden days, during the plague (how the wise kadi protected the Jews from a pogrom).

Yes, that's why it's a compound tragedy; they're not just killing innocent people; they're defaming a religion, too, by insisting that they're truly practicing it. It IS sickening!!
