Gaza: Better Call Human Rights Watch... or someone

According to the AP, those “spiritual” Hamas fighters “dragged vanquished [Fatah] gunmen into the street and shot them to death execution-style.”

So it goes in Gaza, where the Israelis once supposedly practiced apartheid, if we are to believe that other great “spiritual” leader Jimmy Carter, who, in my view, is one of the great self-righteous fakes in American history and a creepy racist besides. [But how do you really feel about him?-ed. You heard me.] Still, even if we are to buy into Carter’s palaver, the Palestinians must be yearning for a little apartheid these days. Left to their own devices, they have turned Gaza into the charnel house of charnel houses.

And with Hamas taking over Gaza, and declaring an Islamic state, that can only mean one thing – Welcome Ayatollah Khamenei and his Psycho-Dwarf Ahmadinejad. The Mullahs will now be ensconced on Israel’s southern and northern borders. [Maybe someone should call Javier Solana?-ed. I thought I fired you.]

Unlike Jimmuh, I am not, alas, a very spiritual person. I tried Zen for a while, but I didn’t have the discipline. And being inside synagogues and churches doesn’t fill me with awe the way it does others (though I admire the architecture). Being inside a mosque, of course, fills me with the desire to watch my back. But if I were a believer, I’d be thanking God right now I wasn’t born in Gaza, because I think the Palestinians there are about ready to experience a Hell the likes of which even they have never dreamed about. Because Hamas, being basically a psychopathic organization, will be unable to control themselves if they win, especially since they will be the lackeys of their overlords in Tehran. This means they will overreach quickly. This time, I am relatively certain, the Israeli response will be swift and in no way measured, as it was in Lebanon. And no one will make much of an attempt to stop them because almost no one cares much for the Gazans anymore. [What about Jimmuh?-ed. He’s hard of hearing.]
