- Elder of Ziyon tops the list with the best show of enemy duplicity, with his post Lifestyles of the rich and terrorist, from May 16, 2007. Reference this for the next time a Leftscum terror apologist talks about those “poor, starving Palestinians”.
- One Jerusalem brings VIDEO EXCLUSIVE:: Semi-protected Schools, Damaged Homes and Kassam Rockets: A Day in the Life of Sderot, from May 15, 2007. Videos that should be on the Mainstream Media but aren’t, because they’d be unhelpful for later portraying Israel as a “brutal aggressor” when it does something about it all.
- Speaking of our reaction, Robert J. Avrech of Seraphic Secret has a few words about our military situation and world opinion, in his post The Inbetween War, from May 18, 2007. As I put in on Belmont Club, we’re going to have to leave all those niceties if we’re to survive.
- Lel, the Fiery Spirited Zionist, in her post Why “Palestine” should never come into existence (with those good scare quotes round the name of the fictitious nation just like there ought to be!), from May 12, 2007, explains why the “Palestinians” have no valid claim on this land and do not deserve to have a state of their own. She also jabs at the hypocrisy of those who are in no hurry to created a state for the Kurds, who, in contrast to the “Palestinians”, have proven themselves worthy of a state. This Is The World, 2007: no evil deed unrewarded, and no good deed unpunished.
- On the Astute Bloggers, Omri (of Mere Rhetoric fame) posts Islamists Advocate Raiding American Forums And Repeating Democratic Talking Points, from May 16, 2007, in which he brings yet another damning exhibit of the Left/Islam alliance. “Nazis and Nazi-sympathizers of the world, unite!”
- Yid With Lid has the post The Muslim American Society Promotes Terror, from May 17, 2007. Note the fatwa, especially the part, “The enemy relies on sophisticated military equipments […] So the Palestinians have nothing but throwing stones at their enemy in order to defend their country. […] So the Palestinians resort to martyr operations, in which the martyr seriously harms the enemy meanwhile sacrifices his own life.” This appears frequently as the terrorism apologists’ line on lefty sites like Daily Kos.
- Saving the most personally rewarding post for the last: Rabbi Without A Cause posts My problem with Platonics, from May 16, 2007, in which he details the fences which our saintly rabbis raised around the holy institution of marriage. I just want to say this: I don’t care if this sounds like the dictates of Islam to some people; the fault of copying the original (and bastardizing it) lies with the copier, not with the one who has the original.
My featured post: Nachamu, Nachamu Ami!, from May 16, 2007, in which I call for rebukes to be based on both truth and love.
I now take advantage of this opportunity to bring links from outside Haveil Havalim:
- Blogfather Gates of Vienna brings All Jihad is Local, from May 17, 2007, with a wonderful attempt by the Baron to convey the meaning of the rocket barrage on Sderot.
- On Jihad Watch, the post U.S. embassy in Iraq to be world’s biggest, priciest, from May 20, 2007, provides an impressive view into the cluelessness of the current American administration, an administration that can be praised only in comparison to the treasonous opposition, the Democrats. Many otherwise right-thinking people get this wrong: if you root for American victory, then that’s good, but you need to define the meaning of victory. I have long maintained that a US victory in Iraq is to be defined thus: Iraq being turned into a non-Muslim country. But that’s blood for the “Racist! Bigot! Cultural imperialist!” yapping chihuahuas on the Left.
- And from Jihad Watch’s subsite, Dhimmi Watch, is the post “The principle of secularism cannot be applied on Bosnia because Muslims are not a minority”, with a title straight from the horse’s mouth. Interesting is how the permission of Christian icons and crosses to be brought into classrooms in Bosnia is being debated—in what was the birthplace of the Cyrillic alphabet! I’m not a Christian, but you don’t have to be a Christian in order for it to outrage you; just the principle of it is enough.
- In that vein, from Little Green Footballs, is Little Mermaid in a Hijab, where it is told how vandals had put a hijab on the famous Danish statue. The photo is the real-world equivalent of those “Wishful Thinking” thought-balloons that I saw once as an article on MAD Magazine. To let you know what the Muslims’ wish for the world is. Ah, but it can all be solved by forcing an end to the Israel/“Palestine” conflict! (Deep sarcasm intended, of course.) [UPDATE: this is probably an anti-dhimmi jab. See comment by “kepiblanc” on Gates of Vienna.]
- From the enemy side, take a look at the Daily Kos diary Sderot: On the Frontline, by Jewish, pro-Israel poster Pumpkinlove, from May 20, 2007, where he attempts to portray the effect of the Kassam rockets, only to get a handful of apologies for terrorism (a sample, by commenter “cenobite”: “And now there are rockets falling on Israeli towns? This should surprise no one. Everything that has happened is the result of decisions the Israeli government has made. Step 1 is stop listening to Dubya and his neocon friends”). Beloved brother Pumpkinlove: you’re better off posting on Stormfront—they’re just as Jew-hating, only more honest about it.
- Moonbattery (on our, the good, side) brings the post Retroactive Correctness, from May 19, 2007, which struck me with the similarity of the Muslim and Marxist ways of handling the world: the thought that they know what’s best for everybody; the desire to force their ways on the whole world; and, demonstrated by this post especially, the lust for visiting their own vengeance for sins committed ages ago. The face of evil.
That’s for now. In case I don’t post anything new by tomorrow evening: Happy Shavuot!
