Re: Collective Punishment


Jonah, in that telephone press conference this morning, Sareer Fazili, a member of the group’s board, took note of the suicide bombing this morning that killed Israeli schoolchildren. But he did so by indulging in the moral equivalency these Muslim groups do constantly. He said that around three times more Palestinians under the age of 18 have been killed in the current conflict than have Israelis. Ah yes, children sitting on a schoolbus versus 16-year-olds throwing projectiles at armed soldiers. The Israelis are not specifically targeting Palestinian youth, which in any case are part of this sicko death cult the Islamists among the Palestinians propagate. Why are these people complaining that Palestinian kids are dying when they argue that to die for Allah by the hand of Jews and Crusaders is the greatest of all possible honors?
