The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

The Religion of Peace (and car doors)

I'd love to hear one reasonable excuse for this type of barbarism. Be sure to pay close attention to the glee on these children's faces.

Israel pounded Hamas targets with airstrikes Thursday, killing six people and wounding dozens as it stepped into intense fighting between the Islamic militants and the rival Fatah movement of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The Israeli attacks followed Hamas rocket barrages on southern Israel. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)

I copied the link to a friend of mine. Her reply was, "poor kids dont know any better it is drummed into them from birth. :( "

I replied, "yep, explains why no parents are around to thump the kids in the head for picking up the bloody wrecks, let alone for being there"

If this were to happen here in the US, and in a few forms it has, American culture is to show reverence, caution, and a bit of shock. We dont rush in to cover ourselves with the spilled blood. We dont parade bodies or pieces of wreckage to international photogs.

At most, we slow traffic down getting our looki-lou's in. We have parents that have taught us from day one to respect property, to be helpful to fellow man, to honor life and to protect life when possible. We have shows that promote heroism and self-sacrifice that saves lives.

I couldn't help comparing the picture here to the picture on this Ynet page. I know the celebrants aren't children here, but the comparison is quite striking - similar positions, similar smiles - yet the reasons are diametrically opposite. One celebrates death, one celebrates life and Torah.

Nice comparison Annie.

I think the second photo on that page is more telling. Olmert is staring, supposedly, up into a hole left by a Qassam attack. He looks like he has no clue what he is looking at. And all he can add is, "unhuh".

A clueless man that is a danger to his country.
