Palestinians Burn Synagogues In Gush Katif

Of course this is what most of the thinking world knew would happen. The Palestinians display, again and again, their true character. Of course Sean McCormack, state department spokesman, blames Israel stating

"puts the Palestinian Authority into a situation where it may be criticized for whatever it does."

No sir. They were not damned if they do or damned if they didn't. They were given a gift. They were given a beautiful land that they could have enetered with dignity and honor, showing the world that they were moral, upstanding, honorable, strong citizens of the world, ready and able to take their place among all the great nations.

They could have left the buildings in tact. These were religious sites and they should have been preserved the way millions of religious sites around the world are preserved. If they truly respected places of worship there would have been no problem protecting them.

But they have for years fed their populace on hate.
Instead of a dignified entry into a land they have called their own, filled with speeches and a hand reaching out to Israel, they chose to burn and to loot and destroy.

They had a gift handed to them, not only land that had been cleared and made to blossom, but a gift of demonstrating a new self, a dignified self, a self that was proud and wise and humble and respectful.

But they showed us wildness and lawlessness and hate instead.

They walked into beautiful surroundings; one young student, Muhammad al-Najar, 21, when asked what surprised him most replied "The clean streets and all the trees." (NYTimes article.) These are things this young man coud have had all along. They weren't denied him by the Israelis, they were denied by his leaders.

And at the rate the Palestinians are going he won't have these items for long.

The Palesetinians were handed a gift, and they squandered it. How long before Gush Katif is in ruins? How long before Gush Katif returns to the dead lands they once were? How long will it take them to completely destroy what they were given?

Not long I'm afraid, not long at all.

And of course, somehow, despite the money that will be poured into their coffers, no matter what Israel does, it will be our fault.

But the blame is not ours.

The Palestinians were handed a gift. They sicken themselves and their future generations, and the will reap the havoc and evil that they have sown.

And I pity them.

It was all so "scripted."

I give the destruction until the next set of Israeli expulsions. A year? Two at best?

If that long.
And we might very well be on the chopping block next...I hope not but who knows. My faith is with G-d...I'll fight it, but if that is His ultimate wish for now, I'll accept it as well.

You said it all so beautifully. They were given a gift, and they're going to ruin it.

SO true, so true...most of them seem not to have any capability for even a desire for having nice things like trees, parks etc. A rabbi from Russia (who had visited Israel) came through here to speak a few months ago. He told how you always knew what part was mostly Arab or Jewish in Israel....just by whether it was clean and the fact that the Arab part had not trees or nice things growing anywhere. I understand that the Jews have offered them over and over and over again to set up their cities equally well. What we call a "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink" situation...or so it seems to me. What a harsh g-d and religion they serve...those poor demented people!! They are so blind! There is a price to pay for serving a false religion. But we have plenty of that in our country too to go around...plenty!
