Oh, Joy!

I was reading Aljazeera today:

As Israel has begun its unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, a number of Palestinian intellectuals have urged the Palestinian Authority and resistance groups to tone down celebrations and pay attention to Israel's expansion in the West Bank.
That's right, Palestinians, stop celebrating that Israel is giving you land for FREE and start the tears because they still have some land that they won in war in 1967.

Jerbawi criticised the "Gaza-today and Jerusalem-Tomorrow" slogan voiced last week by PA President Mahmoud Abbas as "mistaken both principally and strategically".

"We must never forget that this withdrawal is a unilateral Israeli act aimed first and foremost at effecting the Israeli strategy of arrogating Jerusalem and over half of the West Bank. Hence our slogan should be 'Jerusalem and the West Bank first, rather than Gaza first.'"

So this is who we kick our brothers out of their homes for?

Meanwhile, Hamas has called for "utilising our earned victory in Gaza" to mobilise Palestinians towards the restoration of the West Bank and East Jerusalem from the Israeli occupiers.

Excuse me while I go vomit...

Earlier, Hamas leaders in the Gaza Strip vowed to retain their weapons until the restoration of Palestinian rights from Israeli hands.

Israel and the United States have been demanding that the PA dismantle and disarm resistance groups such as Hamas.

However, the PA has favoured consensus politics, arguing that hounding Hamas and other resistance groups would lead to civil war.

Still happy, Moishe? Personally, I'm sickened.

Prolly a bad idea to take ANYTHING out of Al Jazeerah - except that the Ayrabs hate us.

Dina i totally agree with you. The most sickening thing, that made me want to go vomit, was when I heard on the news over, and over that Hamas claimed victory over it. (in my words) bombing buses full of children, killing innocent people walking down the street, shooting families driving to and from work, finally paid off. Now they have their land. Just for that, I want to take back every single blade of grass we gave them. It totally disgusted me to hear that. Hamas did crap, we GRANTED them land, because we felt they should have a place to live too.
