Just a couple of short notes for today. I haven't been feeling very good and I'm just physically exhausted.
There were a lot of Arab-American and Palestinian supporters on the various television shows today. You could hardly flip a channel without seeing someone saying that it is basically Israel's fault that they are getting bombed. The solution is to stop the oppression of the Palestinian people. This is so stupid that it's laughable. More than 90 percent of the Palestinians are under the rule of the Palestinian Authority. The only time Israel goes in and oppresses the Palestinians nowadays is after terrorists have decided to kill some innocents.
If the Palestinians want to stop the oppression, here's a hint: STOP THE TERRORIST SUICIDE BOMBINGS!
The most frustrating thing I heard continually from the terrorists' apologists was their equivocation of directed Israeli attacks on the leaders of terrorist organizations and the suicide bombings carried out by terrorists. Journalists should not allow this false claim to go unchallenged. Under the Oslo peace accords, these terrorists that the Israeli military has been killing should have been rounded up and put in jail by Yasser Arafat. They shouldn't have been out walking the streets in the West Bank and Gaza Strip where they could plan attacks on Israeli civilians and be killed by the Israeli military.
So, who's fault is it that there are Israeli military attacks on Hamas and Hezbollah leaders? Yasser Arafat's.
