Missiles bound for Tel Aviv

This report saddens me; Israel will receive five less missiles this month in its vital "War on Arabs":

"Five missiles allegedly being shipped to Israel were seized by Venezuelan authorities from a private airport hangar, the attorney general's office said Monday. The missiles apparently arrived in Venezuela from neighbouring Colombia late last month and 'were destined for Tel Aviv, Israel,' according to the statement issued by prosecutors."

Clearly, Fuhrer Howard, you missed the joke. So, why am I not surprised?
Perhaps you'd be more comfortable if the entire Arab world, with all those dirty Arabs, were removed from the map entirely?

No, Dear Leader Lowenstein, I'm inclined to think people just want child abuse to be stopped such as that in Gaza.

Strange how you chose to rebutt that post from someone: with a completely irrational posting about removing Arabs entirely. Talk about a misrepresentation.

Note: Interesting to see how off the mark you were when you wrote your post back in November on Webdiary following Arafats death. Suicide attacks are down. Abu Mazen has made a greater effort to crack down on terrorists. Hamas has been so well behaved that even the USA (via 'Condie') have slightly eased their stance (hopefully not for long), and elections where once again held (after Arafats refusal since 1996).

Things are looking up, old chap. Relatively, anyway. But we don't wanna deliver any good news now, do we. Some of us still mourn over baby-killers like Arafat, don't we Anthony?

Things are looking up? Really? If you're an Israeli maybe, but the rate of settlement expansion etc continues. Violence will sadly reflare. Why? Because, once again, we have a US/Israeli rejectionist position.
Keep dreaming in fantasy land.
Mourn over baby killers? Jesus, that's low. Though predictable for people like you.
Yawn. Get back to reading Daniel Pipes...

Dear Ilan Pappe fan club member Number-1,

Violence will reflare, you say? I don't think so. I suggest that, despite your fervent hopes, violence will not renew. Certainly nowhere near that of Arafat levels.

Yes, things are on the up. But please, don't believe me, don't take my word for it, Lord Haw Haw.

Take the word of Naomi Chazan, of whom I'm sure you are aware. The ABC describes her as "a world-renowned peace activist," and since she was a deputy speaker of the Knesset as a member of the Meretz Party, I assume her policies are right up your alley (unless, that is, you claim to be even further on the fringe Left than Meretz??)

Lets see what she says. Grab your listening gear and have a listen, sunshine:

Interesting, its not just us Righties and Centrists proclaiming things are on the up. Says Lefty Chazan, "we have an unusual opportunity now to reach an agreement after a deadly 4 & half years". Wow, not bad hey, Ant?

But try this, gloom-boy: "There is now an overwhelming majority among Israelis and among Palestinians converging on a two-state conclusion to the conflict."

And the most delicious detail that pours scorn over your amateur piece after Arafat's death (implying that things would not get better). Chazan says the optimism is due to the fact that "THERE ARE NOW NEW ACTORS ON THE SCENE".

When ABC presenter Jon Faine suggests that Arafats death has contributed to renewed peace hopes, she agrees, stating "not only that, but also Sharon's decision to disengage from Gaza"

Wow, never have the words from a true Lefty sounded so sweet. I suppose I find myself closer to the side of peace than I thought. Certainly more than AL then, anywhow.

You meanwhile, continue to inhabit a position in the darkest corners of minority Palestinian thought, synonomous with that of Hamas and other brave "freedom fighters".

No doubt you have the tools to rebut Naomi Chazan, our brave little peace-hater?

Spend more time researching, less time talking, writing, blogging, and trying to convey your maximalist viewpoint to the majority of peace-seekers.
Tip: Empty barrels make the loudest noise.
