Build-A-Bomb and Kill-A-Kid

Filed under: Politics — lmwalker @ 5:17 pm

A joint paratrooper and Shin Bet force uncovered an explosive lab in Nablus Friday night. In the lab, the forces found teddy bears with wires hanging from them, apparently slated to be used as explosive devices.

While it doesn’t surprise me that Hamas is constructing toy-like bombs to target children, it never ceases to amaze me that the western media wants to credit them with the moral high ground.

Whether or not one sympathizes with the Palestinian cause (and I’m not entirely unsympathetic, although their repeated refusal to use diplomatic channels reduces their claim on my sympathies,) I consider that the “freedom fighters” who seek to target children have a crippling lack of honor. And, like it or not, that makes them Very Bad Men.

  1. The earthen colors of our clothing blended well with the terrain. At the sound of distant helicopter rotors we were to roll ourselves within our cloaks and impersonate rocks….But we would be invisible wrapped inside our Afghan capes.

    No wonder we can’t find Osama Bin Laden!
