I hate number games when the units are people's lives, but killing a thousand people, most of whom are civilians and many are children, in revenge for missile attacks that killed fewer than twenty Israelis ... that's why we hear the word disproportionate. And I marvel that people who once faced extinction can in turn advocate it for all of the Palestinians in Gaza, as did some of the commentators featured on the video. How can anyone just shrug his or her shoulders at the prospect of such grotesque numbers of civilian deaths and dismiss it as "collateral damage"? It's gut-wrenching. The rocket attacks by Hamas needed to be stopped, but turning Gaza into a bloody wasteland is more likely to inspire future attacks than discourage them.

Ah, that's right, number games! How many were killed in the Holocaust, again? It doesn't really matter, my friends - keeping track of who killed whom is simply a number game. Let's just agree that all sides concerned behaved very naughtily and leave it at that.
My parents are such cheap bastards! When they had my penis slashed they didn't bother with a moyl (moil?); they just paid some doctor to do it!
Big Bubbie is Watching you.
She says, Bad on you for making us kill your children! Until you love us we will keep killing them. So, stop the hate already! We demand the respect and love we're entitled to!
Geoffrey Wheatcroft's comments in his Jan. 11 op-ed in the Independent (UK), "How Israel gets away with murder", struck me as so sensible that I was tempted to try to find a copy of his book The Controversy of Zion: Jewish Nationalism, the Jewish State, and the Unresolved Jewish Dilemma.
May all potentially sentient beings be prosperous, health, and at peace.
"my country, right or wrong," a dangerous but all too common philosophy on all sides. "my race,right or wrong,my friends right or wrong"...
So here is history:
1. Nazis attempt genocide of Jews in Germany.
2. Hamas fires rockets into Israel.
3. Israel storms Gaza in retaliation.
I haven't left anything out, have I?
When all the fighting is almost done and there are just two guys left there standing on a heap of rubble the one guy will probably suggest that maybe they should stop now, and the other guy will pretend to agree, and then hit the other guy with a brick. And then he'll be all, 'I won! Did you see that guys?' but then he'll look around and there won't be anyone there, so he'll have to move to France and take a crappy job as a bellhop. Then Disney will redo it all as a theme park, and pretty soon some guy will cut another guy off in line or something, and it will all start again, like unto the flowers that bloom in the spring.
God, that woman with the glasses and dark hair is stupid.
And that guy who says Hamas isn't differentiating between civilians and army so Israel doesn't need to either. What the fuck man?! You're going to stoop to the level of a terrorist organization? What does that make you, then?
Here come a riddle, here come a clue
If you were really smart you'd know what to do, when I say
Jet pilot gone out of control, ship captain run aground
Stock broker make a bad investment when Lubavitchers come to town!
Some people think it was the Jews behind 9/11.
I know it was God. God hated the bond traders at Cantor Fitzgerald so much that he didn't care who was caught in the crossfire.
By the way, it looks like somebody should clean up, it is starting to smell like old spam in here.
I forgot about those! Maybe they look good w/ the right outfit? I didn't like skinny jeans when I first saw them. lol. Please come visit my site homegrown when you got time.
