Choose your neighbors carefully

It's always a good idea to choose your neighbors carefully, especially if you live in Gaza. The house next door to this one was targeted on Monday morning by the IAF. This house - pictured after a bombing run two years ago - belongs to Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. Haniyeh, who claims he 'loves death' and wants to become a 'martyr' was not there of course. He and the rest of the Hamas leadership are in hiding, and are allowing others to die on their behalf. Maybe Haniyeh loves his wife enough that he doesn't want 72 virgins.

The IAF also bombed a Hamas 'guest house' early Monday morning.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention: The beautiful kitchen that you see in the picture above is in a 'refugee camp.' They really are poor, aren't they?

Looks very middle class to me. In a rational world, the Palestinians would have no reason to attack Israel. However, the one we live in is one where hating Jews is far more profitable than pursuing a normal existence.

I hate to disagree, but I don't think it's more profitable to hate Jews--which is why hating Jews is the epitome of irrationality. I'm sure if you think about it you would find it staggering to think of the difference between the present quality of life in the West Bank and Gaza and what the quality could have been if they had only pursued peace, pursued knowledge and useful business, and pursued technological development. They would enjoy the highest per capita standard of living anywhere in the Arab world.

Naftali, they could be prosperous and happy. But that would mean conceding the infidel Jews are their equal. That is precisely what they will never do and they would rather go hungry and kill Jews than develop themselves and give Israel a day of peace. They do have their priorities and that's why the normal idea of peace doesn't work because the Palestinians don't share the same vision Israelis do. They want to replace the Jewish State, not exist alongside it. Their actions and their words are on an identical wavelength insofar as their attitude towards Israel is concerned.

You're right. And for the normal western mind, this is an impossible concept to wrap one's head around. This is one of the reasons 'diplomatic efforts' resemble a dog chasing its tail. Personally, our household dog is too smart for that, and would therefore make a terrible diplomat.
