They Kill Only Jews

Someone sent me a joke in the e-mail today, in which Osama Bin-Laden calls Yasser Arafat and says, "Listen, Yassi, there is something that I don't understand. We are both terrorists, we both killed thousands of innocent people, but all the world is hunting only me, and at the same time you are the honorable Nobel-Prize for Peace Winner! What is your secret?"

Someone sent me a joke in the e-mail today, in which Osama Bin-Laden calls Yasser Arafat and says, "Listen, Yassi, there is something that I don't understand. We are both terrorists, we both killed thousands of innocent people, but all the world is hunting only me, and at the same time you are the honorable Nobel-Prize for Peace Winner! What is your secret?"

"Oh, it is very simple, Osamale. I kill only Jews."

Now, saying that, we have a problem. The double standard is alive and well and functioning all over the world. Logically, the Jewish state would be well aware of this troubling fact and act accordingly. It is in a war. Not a "conflict" with "militants" and "activists", but with a barbaric and savage, dysfunctional culture that wants to kill them dead. In fact, these are the same enemies that we, in the United States, and all those folks who voted for terrorism in Spain and the rest of the world, are facing.

It has recently become apparent that the raging Muslims over the hill now have their sights set on the Sunday crowd also. We, under the sporadic leadership of George Bush, are facing unbelievable problems at the moment, with no end in sight.

The influx from America's borders is like a leaking ship. The sea of illegal immigrants is bringing our civil structure down. Or economy is going down the tubes because of them and the cost of fighting their terrorism is beginning to make our Social Security look like a thing of the past.

Hey, I'm so old I remember when we had a state called Florida and a wonderful vacation spot named Miami Beach. Ah, but that was before Jimmy Carter and his "open door" policy, and thousands and thousands of Haitians and Cubans were encouraged by him to flee the oppression of their countries. Fidel Castro gladly acceded to his wishes and opened up all of his jails and mental institutions and sent them on the boats to a new life in the United States.

President Bush is in the process of doing a similar thing to California and a few neighboring states because of his great friendship with Mexican President Fox. Thousands of illegal Mexicans cross our borders daily and immediately go on our tax and social service rolls. Jobs are being lost at an alarming rate. I don't even want to think about how many Islamic terrorists are also crossing these open borders with Canada and Mexico.

The reason I mention this is because we in the United States are making blunders incredibly often in both domestic and foreign affairs. Yet, this is a government from which the present Israeli leaders seem to be taking their orders. Bush and our State Department turn the screws a little tighter and Israel caves in faster than Spain after their latest 3/11.

Somewhere along the way, Israel began to do what those in Spain did by capitulating to the terrorists. Our War on Drugs was defined by the quote, "Just say No." Why is it impossible for both the United States and Israel's leaders to remember that Israel is a sovereign country?

It's time to remind them that the Jewish State is not a banana republic that must take orders from the Americans, the European Union, the United Nations and especially not from the Arab dictatorships. A good part of this group would love to see the demise of every Jew in the area.

It's illogical to try and negotiate with a culture of people who, in large part, have become 'killing machines.' At the very least, they believe in a creed of evil and death. These are people who happily live in tunnels and caves if the light at the end of the tunnel is a school or bus to bomb. All they understand is force. It's very basic. Sharon seems to be finally 'getting it'.

Now that the cruel leader, Sheik Ahmed Yassin, has been eliminated, the flame of terrorism is going to burn higher. I hope that Israel isn't alone in fighting this resulting battle between good and evil. Britain has already come out in condemnation, along with the EU, UN and Israel's good friend Hosni Mubarak, who, of course, never stopped the flow of arms from his tunnels. It's too bad they don't remember what Churchill had to say: "The appeaser is the one who hopes the crocodile will eat him last."

I hope Sharon will not be forced into appeasement and continues to believe that when you are dealing with savage barbarians, you can't let their evil seduce you. Nor can you reason with people who not only want to kill you, but everyone who differs from them and their sick ideology.

The world deplores the terrorists when terrible things happen around the globe; except, of course, when they happen in Israel. Then, they are "incidents" caused by "militants" or "activists". Our president repeats the mantra "the war on terrorism" at every opportunity. Great! I'm all for it!

I've said it before, but it bears repeating. Terrorism isn't about land. Never has been. It's about the very existence of the Jewish State. It's down to Them vs. Us. This war can be won, and quickly, but not if Israel decides to talk the enemy to death. The time for apologies is over. Maybe it's time for Israel and its leaders to start repeating the words they seem to have forgotten: Never Again!
