Burning Synagogues

One of the battles to be faought in Gaza was whether the synagogue buildings would come down or not. Shaul Mofaz, the defense minister mounted a galant effort that eventually converted the Prime Minister and allowed the withdrawal without razing them. Of, course, it was a foregone conclusion that the Palestinians would destroy them in short order. In fact, I thought that this might have been the idea; let nature take its course and allow the UN to see what we are dealing with in allowing the Palestinians to "form their own state". The Palestinian leaders and street are among the most bigoted in the world. That is why they have been and should remain powerless.

So to the previous post I add this one Headline that you will never see:
Jews Destroy Abandoned Mosque; Jews Celebrate as Mosque Burns

How would the "world" react to such a headline? How many meetings of the Security Council? How many of their deeply effectual "resolutions" would pass unanymously (with only 4 possible objections, Israel, US, Micronesia and Marshall Islands)? How many International Court summonses would be issued for war crimes? How many against Sharon personally? How many Jewish groups would hold marches, vigils, sit-ins (do they do that anymore?), and whatever sympathetic bluster that their little atheist hearts could rev up for a "House of Prayer"? How many Ilsamic leaders in how many of the 21 Moslem countries and countless NGOs (read terror groups) would issue loud "annihilate the Jews" threats over the crickets chirping in Europe?

Sorry, I could have presented this sarcasticly, but the double standard of the world community activists against racism, especially at the UN (yes, some us still remember Durban, August, 2001), can only change the world in disasterous ways, that I find remarkably unfunny.

  • We've actually destroyed a number of mosques over the years...

  • It is the fanfare and exertion toward disdain that is particularly bothersome.
