Entering the maze

Israel's finest journalist, Amira Hass, explains the reality behind the Gaza "disengagement":

"The Supreme Court justice's response to the legal claim that Israel effectively has control over the Gaza Strip contained a mocking note. This is what transpires, at all events, from a short report in the Hebrew edition of the Haaretz of December 12, in reference to a petition against the pinpoint assassinations policy.

"Attorney Michael Sfard claimed that Israel has 'effective control' in the Strip, even though it does not have a physical presence on the ground there. Justice Mishael Cheshin is quoted as saying that 'perhaps we also have effective control in Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and wherever it is that the cannons fire.'"

Israel has effective control over anywhere it wants simply because of US strategic interests. A rogue state doesn't gain legitimacy simply because it's supported by another rogue state.

Israel is supported by the US & Australia. Oh and also used to be by South Africa when it was still an Apartheid regime. (thinks, hmmmm.....is there a pattern here?)

The only pattern is the one that wore deep groves in what used to be a functioning brain.

The relationship between Israel and apartheid South Africa is one most civilised individuals should care not to forget.

Indeed, Nelson and Tutu are still so pissed off that they intend to foam at the mouth when discussing it.

But that was a government thing roundly criticized by most Israelis and Black South Africans.

But Nelson and Tutu still can't grasp the actual facts. Such as the palestinian peoples whole hearted support of the rape of Kuwait.

That they got fucked by a Jew is all they can grasp.
