Mommy’s Little Monster

Man. I don’t even know where to start with this. It’s written by a woman in Israel, who’s been there for fifteen years. Her son just entered the army. So she’s got a close-up view of what’s happening over there — and with children of her own, she knows how painful the loss of a child must be.

But there’s more to it than that.

People will ask how it is that I don’t blame Israel and the answer is simple. Fire came from that building. Call it what you want - a school, a refuge, a mosque, a home…if you shoot at an enemy…common sense would say the enemy will shoot back. Do it from inside a mosque, and the mosque becomes a target. Do it from inside a school, and the school becomes a target. Do it from behind your citizens and families, and you show the true nature of your society, your culture, your cause.

I’ll ask you to read the whole thing, but if you can’t or won’t do that, please at least scroll down and look at the photographs at the bottom.

That’s not Halloween, or play time. That’s parents genuinely putting grenades and firearms into the hands of three-year olds. Sending them out in the street to throw rocks at an armed combatant. Strapping pretend bombs to their little bodies and dressing them up to be martyrs. And martyr = dead.

Then they parade their little corpses through the streets, when one really is tragically killed, as if they mourn the poor thing. When in truth they’re raising them just to die, as quickly and bloodily as possible — preferably while they’re still cute enough to be used as propaganda.

These monsters need to be routed out, if for no other reason than to keep them from destroying another generation of their own babies, weened on terror.

    In my darker moments I suspect that either a comprehensive campaign of stealing their children or a neutron bomb is the only answer to such barbarity.

    The western media that enables this terrorist culture is digging for a new low. Much as the US media threw integrity out the window in the last election cycle. I find myself shouting “Liar” at BBC World News in the mornings. And every time so far I’ve found the evidence that I was right and BBC was running unfiltered propaganda on behalf of the barbarians.

    Religion of peace. Of course.

    Dumbasses. This just enrages me- and makes me more determined to see israel put the hammer down.

    How can you hope to negotiate with a society who believes that their God wants you dead? Furthermore, they believe it so strongly that they are willing to kill their own children to kill a few of your people? What can you possibly offer them or say to them that will make a difference?

    It is my sad belief that the only way to peace in the middle east is the extinction of the entire Muslim faith.

    I don’t think it’d have to go that far. I know good Muslims, personally. I don’t know any self-avowed Palistinians, but since it’s such a small subset, and I’m so opposed to the very concept, that’s not much of a surprise.

    I just wish the good ones would stand up against the bad ones. And once it becomes less of a death sentence to do so, I think more of them will. (But, of course, it won’t matter then.)

    Obviously, these people did not always behave this way.
    What conditions lead people to behave like this?

  • By Tanya, January 12, 2009 @ 12:35 pm

    Right, only for the past 1000 years or so.

    The “conditions” that led them to this behavior appear to be civilization. Are you suggesting we scrap it, for them? Go back to living in caves?
