* Syrian foreign minister Walid Moallem claims that if the U.S. leaves Iraq, then all terrorism there will end immediately.
Uh, no. If Syria stops harboring terrorists and letting them bleed over its borders into Iraq, then all terrorism there will end immediately. Ditto for its “partner in peace” (or partner in something) Iran, which is fomenting the Mahdi Army, the Shia terrorists.
* Israel announced it was targeting HAMAS terrorist leaders for death. So, hijab-encrusted Palestinian women did a little experiment in Beit Hanoun, a week and a half ago. They served as human shields for terrorists holed up in a building there, terrorists who murdered innocents and shelled Israel with rockets. A few of the women got shot, garnering world sympathy, and even that of Israel’s Cindy Sheehan, Noam Shalit.
Now the terrorist-aiding-and-abetting women have extended the technique, full-scale. In Beit Lahiya, Israel was targeting HAMAS Popular Resistance Committee leader Mohammed Baroud. By Sunday afternoon, two doxen women were on Baroud’s rooftop serving as human shilds. They and the men with them, as well as others on the street shouted the perfunctory
Death to Israel. Death to America.
Time to bomb them all. Human shields know the risks. Protect a mass murderer and aid in his further mass murders, and you are as bad as he is. Collateral damage may not make for good PR, but their elimination is as necessary as his.
Brings to mind what President Bush once said (but apparently never meant):
You’re either on our side or the terrorists’ side.
You can’t be on both.
