What Parasites Do

Browsing using Google Blogsearch has been very rewarding. Try it. I use 'islam terror' to pick up the islamaware sites but do experiment.

Neo-neocon had an article today from 1961. This article by Martha Gellhorn in the Atlantic Monthly, Oct. 1961 really says nothing has changed in the Middle East.

I especially liked her conclusion.

The Arabs of Palestine by Martha Gellhorn.

neo-neocon post - The Palestinians: the more things change, the more they.....

Gellhorn's conclusion - keep in mind,it's 1961!

I had appreciated and admired individual refugees but realized I had felt no blanket empathy for the Palestinian refugees, and finally I knew why...It is hard to sorrow for those who only sorrow over themselves. It is difficult to pity the pitiless. To wring the heart past all doubt, those who cry aloud for justice must be innocent. They cannot have wished for a victorious rewarding war, blame everyone else for their defeat, and remain guiltless....

Arabs gorge on hate, they roll in it, they breathe it. Jews top the hate list, but any foreigners are hateful enough. Arabs also hate each other, separately and, en masse. Their politicians change the direction of their hate as they would change their shirts. Their press is vulgarly base with hate-filled cartoons; their reporting describes whatever hate is now uppermost and convenient. Their radio is a long scream of hate, a call to hate. They teach their children hate in school. They must love the taste of hate; it is their daily bread. And what good has it done them?

There is no future in spending UN money to breed hate. There is no future in nagging or bullying Israel to commit suicide by the admission of a fatal locust swarm of enemies. There is no future in Nasser's solution, the Holy War against Israel; and we had better make this very clear, very quickly.


Here's my conclusion how the Pals think: my labor to allah is to suffer here as a parasite until Allah's land is returned. Muslims come and go, Islam is forever.

Don't you think we are repeating history with this $500 million to the Palestines? Will the West ever learn?

There was a book named "O Jerusalem" by Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre that touched on the problem in Palestine/Israel before 1950. According to an obervation in the book, the people who could have given the Palestinians direction in the crisis left. The rich, the educated, they ran away with whatever they could leaving the movement headless. The Jews however had nowhere to go...

Thanks for your post on my blog. I checked up; nice perspective.!
