I’d like to see the corresponding odds of . . .

being a Palestinian civilian and being hit by Israeli ordnance.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t like seeing civilians of any stripe being hit by rockets, missiles, bombs, cluster munitions, artillery fire, mortar rounds or any other ordnance. But I’ve seen a commercial twice in the last three days from the International Federation of Christians and Jews about how I should drop everything and call a toll-free number to show my support for Jewish victims of Hamas rocket attacks. The commercial states that these rocket attacks are not widely reported in the media.

Funny thing: I’ve been well aware of these attacks for years now.

I’ll do one better. I’m blogging now to show my support for civilians in Israel, Gaza, Jerusalem, Lebanon and associated areas who have to endure rocketing, bombing, shelling, suicide bombing and other violent acts, no matter what the source of the ordnance.

As for ‘eye for an eye’? In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man may be king but he still has lousy depth perception.


  1. It’s a common tactic of those who have most access to the press to use it to complain about being gagged. Like, yeah, right.

  2. You saw the Doonesbury cartoon, where the Israelis report a successful strike against the terrorists: 13 terrorist children, 4 terrorist babies, 21 terrorist females, and 4 terrorist males.

  3. Like Pee Wee Herman’s take on his new pen pal.

    ‘Hello. My Name is Shlomo. I am 9 and in the Israeli Army.’
