#2 Better these bozos spend their days digging for roots to eat or walking 2 hours to their nonexistant jobs instead of looking for ammo or taking pot shots.

#3 "For normal people, Islamic Jihad is not popular," Ajami told me. "My neighbors tell me, 'Look at our lives now, because of your son.'"

Good. Some are starting to figure it out.

"I tried twice to give him up to the Israeli soldiers, but he ran away each time," Shaafi's mother told me, as her son looked on with a stony expression.

Ouch. He worked to earn it, but still ouch.

Oh, and I made a big batch of popcorn, with lots of butter and salt. Enjoy!

#4 thanks ryuge for getting behind the tnr barrier

I doubt the woman really said that she tried to give her son to the Israelis (especially in front of her son). If she actually said this she would probably be killed.

#6 Hatred is not inborn, but learned. Virtually from the day they are born, palestinian children are taught that Jews are devils, conniving, liars, murderers, infidels, and accursed by 'Allah'. A popular urban legend there says Jews come out at night and kidnap palestinian children and either eat them or use them in blood sacrifices. The children's TV shows praise suicide bombers and degrade Jews with cartoon characters. The school teachers and their textbooks are a never-ending diatribe of anti-semitism.

Now this father acts 'surprised' that his son went into the 'jihad'. The NERVE of these people.

#7 lets not overlook the benefits of the Israeli strategy of specifically targeting Islamic Jihad, while trying to minimize civilian casualties, and taking it easy on "militants" from groups not as actively taking part (at least for now) in terror against Israel. This has driven IJ into the ground, but at the same time made it clear that you can AVOID death IF you avoid IJ.

Good for the IDF, and a policy that is tough, but nuanced.

#8 If they are having so much trouble with paleos slipping throught the portals and blowing up, why dont they just seal off the portals, all of them.

#10 "We have to stay as thorns in the Israelis' throats," ...
The entire generation of Islamic Jihad members over the age of 25 in the camp has been wiped out.


If only the Israelites would have obeyed in the time of Joshua, but better late than never when it comes to eliminating thorns and their seed:)

#11  "I tried twice to give him up to the Israeli soldiers, but he ran away each time," Shaafi's mother told me, as her son looked on with a stony expression. "I say, 'All of your friends have been killed or arrested. Your turn is next.' He says, 'I cannot change my ways.'"

Change or die, asshole.

#13 "If they are having so much trouble with paleos slipping throught the portals and blowing up, why dont they just seal off the portals, all of them."

The Israeli Supreme Court is currently holding things up, but once the route is approved all the gaps should be filled. More info is on the Haaretz site.

"After five years of this, we don't know how to lead a normal life."

Indeed, son. That's why you're gonna start killing each other once the Israelis are out of reach.
