14-Year-Old Palestinian Boy Caught At Checkpoint With Shrapnel-Explosive Bombs
— Ace

Gee willickers, I wish Bush would press Sharon into making all sorts of politically-difficult concessions to the Palestinians so that paedoterrorism like this would end!

Oh, wait, he did? Sharon forcibly removed all Israeli settlers from Gaza?


I know the answer then: More concessions!

It's just gotta work this time, I know it!

As Neville Chamberlain said, If at first you don't succeed, just give them Tel Aviv and see what happens then.

1 "Paedoterrorism?" Y'all feeling terribly British today, Ace?

2 They'll probably find out that the kid was mentally retarded too...

3 The Gaza pullout was just another atrocity by the Israelis.

By giving Palestinians what they want, Sharitler (Hitron?) was merely cruelly whetting their appetites for more. No wonder there's more terror.... Oh, ahem, excuse me. "Resistance." Yeah. Resistance.

4 Hitron? As in, Voltron's mass-murdering, genocidal cousin? I think I missed that episode.

5 Actually, I believe Hitron is a flavor of Absolut Vodka.

6 The wages of appeasement.
Minimum wages, at that.

7 The ones caught are always passengers on the short bus. You'd think they would come up with a better excuse, like the kid was a diversion so that the real shaheed could smuggle in the Illudium Pew-36 Explosive Space Modulator.

8 I don't think Sharon is under any illusions that pulling out of Gaza will appease the Palestinians. I think he's just tired of being their police force. I agree with him. Israel should pull out of regions that are primarily Palestinian to some reasonable boundary (decided by Israel), build a giant wall, and try to ignore the noise next door as their neighbors fight their inevitable civil war. It's a sick and sad situation, but I'm not sure what better options there are.

9 appeasement → "courage"
fighting back → "terrorism"

10 Use of 14 year old kids is disgusting. Terrorism is disgusting.

The incident tool place in Nablus, deep inside the Occupied West Bank, where people line up at hundreds of checkpoints for hours everyday to get assent from Israeli occupiers to move from their home to go to a school or business. 38 years of that shit.

That is disgusting, too.

As is waiting at those checkpoints as traffic wizzes by on "Jews-only allowed" roads built within the Occupied Palestinian lands, as is Settlers having head of the line privileges at common checkpoints as Jewish are considered above waiting...since of course the checkpoints were built to protect colonizing Jews coming in from Russia - hence, all the "fault" of the Palestinians who "justly" - as punishment for not appreciating the invaders -- wait hours and are subject to other humiliations.

That is disgusting, too.

And the attacks will continue until Israel withdraws to permanent borders.

The East Europeans hated the Soviet tanks and Soviets populating their countries. The story of other colonial invaders is well known. But somehow Israel is a special exception...

11 Using a 14 year-old to commit murder = budging in line

Brilliant, fucking brilliant.

Yes, "somehow." Care to elaborate on that?
