Peace for Israel ...

... won't come from the Palestinians.

For those that think the return of the Gaza Strip to the Palestinian Authority was a good thing; I'll let you in on a little secret: It won't stop there.

In an interview with Palestinian TV Al Menar, Palestinian Cleric Sheikh Muhammad Ali (not the boxer) called for more violent jihad.

I note, in particular, this quote:

Any land, any piece of land, over which flies the banner of 'There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger,' and which at a certain point belonged to the Muslims – as far as we are concerned, plundering and occupying such land is forbidden, and it is the duty of all Muslims to do what they can to liberate this land, wherever it may be...

Do you know what this means? It means not only Israeli lands but also Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, parts of France (they will just surrender anyway) and a whole buncha 'Stans (Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgystan). This map shows the extent of Caliphate lands circa 650.

He goes on to say that negotiation is not an option. This guy is a Deputy Directory of the Palestinian Clerics Association. That is some pretty scary stuff.

Pat Robertson makes bold and inciteful statments and he is scorned by your average U.S. Citizen. This guy does the same and he is louded and obeyed. Of course, our apologist media won't cover the story in this light. They will simply talk about how we have to understand the Palestinian plight and how we are somehow deserving of this hostility.

Not hating the American media as much as you I have to say I think they are not being "apologist" so much as trying to appear unbiased. If the media sounded opinionated, no one would listen at all. They have to give the whole "We are showing both sides, here!" image or they are lost. Now, whether they are truly biased, or simply better at spinning than average people is arguable.
