What Goes Around...

... comes around.

"In a series of 'price-tag' incidents, angry right-wing extremists in the Samaria area of the West Bank attacked a military base, two IDF commanders and Palestinian vehicles late on Monday night and early Tuesday morning to protest the pending demolition of the unauthorised Ramat Gilad outpost." (Right-wing extremists attack IDF base, Herb Keinon, The Jerusalem Post/The Australian Jewish News, 16/12/11)

Let's get this right. Israeli settlers attacked an IDF base because they thought the IDF were preparing to demolish one of their cubby houses.

Blimey, what kind of pumped-up psychos go around attacking people just because they think they're going to strike first?

Why, the IDF, of course:

"On Thursday, the IDF bombed a car travelling in Gaza and killed a Aksa [sic] Martyrs Brigades operative who the army said was plotting an attack on Israel via the Sinai. The bombing of the car is part of an IDF understanding that since it cannot operate in Egypt it needs to stop such attacks while they are in the planning stages in the Gaza Strip." (Egypt: no Sinai base for Hamas, Yaakov Katz, The Jerusalem Post/The AJN, 16/12/11)
