The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Whose Victory?

You'll recall that Israel released 255 "Palestinian" prisoners on Friday, an opportunity for the "Palestinians" to participate in a massive festival of propaganda.

Fast-forward to today, and notice how the tone is:

Now, it's important to point out that the top picture, of the prisoners being released, is of released terrorists peace-lovers from the "moderate" killers of Fatah, whereas the bottom picture comes from the "extreme" bloodthirsty killers of Hamas. From this, we learn that the Hamas response to Israel's release of "non-violent" Fatah prisoners is to yell, shout, scream, march, and cajole the international press until Hamas has a "Me Too!" prisoner release all its own.

It's not like these types of temper tantrums are unusual for the Palestinians. After all, it's the only form of "dialogue" in their vocabulary.

It'll be interesting to see how long this persists before Israel caves in the next time.
