You must always file the Palestinian Peace Talks under: No good deed shall go unpunished. Those people invented the axiom!p>However, if the Israelis want real progress, I agree they should employ the Golden Rule. That would get the attention of those ungrateful, nasty people. Just a thought for the serious, religious Jews: I think the time has come for them to stop appeasing the Palestinians and start showing them who has power and who doesn’t. Can the situation get worse? br> — Judy Beumler br> Louisville, Kentucky /p>
Since I do not have a dog in this hunt I can only speculate what might happen if the IDF decided to forgo the precision and surgical strikes against Hamas and instead went with a much more casual “bomb the snot out of Gaza and let Allah sort them out” policy. Obviously, it would be far cheaper and require far less man power expenditure on the Israelis part, so it does make sense. But the loss of Hamas sympathizers, oh excuse me, “innocent civilians,” would lead to much consternation in the Israel hating United Nations and the rest of the corrupt and backwards, think 12th century, Middle East. As long as Israel exists those that blindly follow Islam’s teachings will hate it. I’m all for Israel turning Gaza into one big swirling dust storm of shattered concrete and rusting steel where no man dares cross. While their at it why not walk a path of destruction all the way to Tehran.. I’d love to see the look on President Tom’s face when he opens the door to the posh Iranian Presidential palace and there is a JDAM equipped thousand pound bomb getting ready to knock.p>If so many desire to visit Allah why shouldn’t the rest of the world pitch in and help? br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
