Internal Struggle for Personal Betterment Alert

Fox reports an Israeli shopping mall has been struck by a rocket fired from Gaza. Palestinian Islamic [INSENSITIVE TERM DELETED] has claimed responsibility. No word yet on when the peace-loving Palestinians of Gaza and the West Bank will rise up in condemnation against this handful of criminals that is perverting the true Islam.

Did I mention that recent polling indicates that 50 percent of Palestinians openly support terrorist attacks against Israel? On the bright side, this compares favorably with the 93 percent of young Palestinian adults (aged 18 to 25) who deny Israel’s right to exist — a figure that plummets to a mere 75 percent when the total population is factored in. Obviously, this has nothing to do with Islam and is caused by foolish Americans who enhance the self-esteem of terrorists by referring to them as you-know-what-ists.

Cleverness is the plague of our political classes, an influenza of the intellect. The consultants are always trying to ... Read More
