Israeli turned over the land they captured in ’67. The dust hadn’t even settled from their exit when:
Palestinians surged triumphantly into demolished Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip early today, torching empty synagogues and firing shots into the air, as the last Israeli soldiers withdrew after 38 years of occupation.
I can see some really hostility expressed by making the synagogues into barns, or a manure storage storage facility but even that would be considerably over the top in my “book”–and I’m an atheist. Burning them to the ground is stupid, completely irrational, or an expression of blinding hatred. As Clayton Cramer said in his post:
Can you imagine the upset if Israelis had torched mosques in the Occupied Terroritories? There is something unnerving about this–rather like Krystallnacht translated into Arabic.
I’m guessing it’s blind hatred.
In another article — regarding the spread of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases:
Al-Sayyid: Most certainly. The entire world, from the US to the most distant country, acknowledges that if they had stoned the fornicators, and prevented abomination, things would have been much better.
No wonder they call it “The Religion of Peace.” Anyone that disagrees with their view of morality is killed and things are peaceful again.
They give us no acceptable options but to destroy their extremist culture.
