One Incredibly Useful Fool

"[W]e live in a world where there is an ongoing war against the Jews... There are many people waging this war. Some blow up cafes. Some fire rockets into civilian areas. Some are pursuing nuclear arms. Some are fighting the soft war, through international boycotts and resolutions condemning Israel." (No ceasefire means no peace in war on Israel, Rupert Murdoch, The Australian, 16/10/10)

And some are just collecting gravel...

"The Israeli military has been urged to investigate the recent shootings of at least 12 impoverished Palestinian teenagers and young men collecting gravel in an effort to eke out an income within 800 metres of Gaza's heavily guarded northern border. The youngsters - including at least 2 under 15 - were shot and injured as they gathered the gravel to sell cement manufacturers struggling to meet a fraction of the demand for building materials still banned from entering Gaza through Israel. The shootings - highlighted in reports by two human rights agencies - are the latest development to come to light in a more general military enforcement of a 'buffer zone' inside Gaza's border." ( Israeli soldiers 'shot at children collecting gravel by Gaza border', Donald Macintyre, The Independent, 12/10/10)

But, hey, "[t]he peace we all want will come when Israel feels secure..." (No ceasefire)
