Just Imagine......

....... if Hamas and the other various hate filled factions in Gaza channeled all that money, energy and logistical effort that they put into building rockets and digging tunnels, buying arms and teaching their children to hate Jews for the sake of hating Jews into say, imitating the Israelis by making the desert bloom with farms to feed their people and manufacturing something that the rest of the world would want to buy from them. Giving them jobs and hope for the future and the futures of their children.

But instead they consider their children as military assets to be used and sacrificed in endless wars and squandering the billions of dollars that the world has given them on corruption and arms and fostering hatred.  They then complain to that same world "Look we have nothing, and the Jews have everything, but only because they stole it from us!"  Meanwhile hundreds if not thousands of Palestinian sick and injured are treated in Israeli hospitals, tons of food, medical supplies and household goods flow from Israel into Gaza every week.  Thousands of Palestinians seek and are given jobs in Israeli industry, farms and construction.

As long as the so-called leaders of the Palestinians and the Arab world at large remain committed to enriching themselves and keeping the rest of their people focused on a centuries old blood feud, nothing will change and the suffering, war and death will continue.  As long as they, and I'm speaking of the Palestinian leaders here, as long as they continue to teach their children that loving death more than their enemies love life is more important than loving their children and building a prosperous future for them, they will remain little more than crude barbarians in the truest sense of the word.

T.E. Lawrence was right nearly a hundred years ago when he concluded that true progress for the Arab was all but impossible as long as they remained tribal in nature and their leaders continued to perpetuate and manipulate that social structure for their own exclusive benefit.


  1. So true! I read somewhere that Hamas's tunneling project consumed something like 40% of their entire budget! That's a lot or roads and schools, hospitals and farms that won't get built.

    1. Well who needs new schools when the curriculum never changes from morning classes in 1 "We love death more than Jews love life," 2 "All Jews are descended from pigs and monkeys" and afternoon classes of Applying the mornings lessons to childhood martyrdom and the religious obligation to kill Jews and anyone who doesn't think the same as we do.
