Folks, have you ever asked yourselves about the psychology of the Islamo-Fascist or the psychology of the self-loathing Jew? For example, why did the Palestinians utilize a democratic experiment to elect Islamo-Fascists? or, why are Israeli leftists using the occasion to paint the new rulers of palestinians as forces of social justice? or, what pathologies spawn a death cult like this? or, why have many on the Israeli Left [Smooth: and American Left, I might add] have taken the occasion of the Hamas victory to paint Hamas — which has vowed to exterminate Jews — as some kind of social justice party that is concerned with peace and the common welfare?

Do not feel bad for “palestinians” folks. We must all remember that in ’47 and ’48 the palestinian leadership chose war instead of the state that the UN offered them in a partitioned Palestine. Their motives in going to war against the Jews were murderous, *not* self-destructive: they had every reason to believe that they would win a war of extermination against a relative handful of under-armed Jews – the same “Children of Death” who had gone unresistingly to the gas chambers.
And for this cruelty, palestinians and their Arab accomplices can and should not be forgiven.
