Some of the most wittiest, brightest thoughts are posted by the TT’s regular readers. I really appreciate their taking the time to drop a thought along the way, they are what makes blogging a joy.
That said, there are others who comment in a “hit and run fashion”, whose sole intention is to disseminate “off the wall” nonsense in order to help feed the propaganda machine because they know that their cause is on the ropes and fading fast.
All the better to post their nonsense, because, the best detergent for buffoonery is the light of day. They can never hope to win an argument by going “head to head and toe to toe” with the truth, because it’ll undermine their efforts and their cause.
For the Palestinians and their supporters, only shadowed corners and alley ways are preferred, outright confrontation with the truth is to be avoided at all costs. The TT has exchanged emails and posts with many such minded people, only to see them fade fast into the blogosphere. They simply can’t take their logic, rhetoric and claims to the very end. They simply vanish into thin air as fast as they popped up in the comment section.
The commenter PLO left the following comment:
“Pro-Israel people are once again making any excuse or plain lie to justify their beloved country murdering innocent people. According to UN IDF admitted that there wasnt any firing from UN school. Hamas wanted to have trade routes open to Gaza. That was the reason to cease fire and ISrael promised to do that. It didnt keep its word like so many times before. Israels current leaders are war criminals. There is no doubt about that.”
All I have to say to PLO and those of you following this blog, is “lets go to the video tape”.
“Hamas launches rockets from civilian areas and rocket fire during the humanitarian cease-fire on 8 Jan. 2008. At time track 1:09 we see Hamas militants launching rockets during the humanitarian cease-fire in the afternoon. In both cases, the Israel Air Force destroyed the terrorist positions in precision strikes.”
"Every devout Muslim is an "Islamist". Islam is not a personal religion. It is a religion of the public space. A "moderate" Muslim would have to reject Islam as a religion of the public space, as theocracy, and that secularism would be a rejection of Islam.
Nothing in Islam exists apart from anything else. While liberals view culture and religion as a buffet that they can pick and choose from, it is a single integrated system. If you accept one part, you must accept the whole. Once you accept any aspect of Islam, you must accept its legal system and once you accept that, you must accept its governance and once you accept that, you lose your rights.''

The UN, ''a crooked court with jury hanging judges'' It's the international Jim Crow of our times. Israel can expect the same kind of ‘justice” from the UN, that a Black African American could expect in the formerly segregated southern states of the US.
