NO MORE EMPTY STATEMENTS OF CONDOLENCES, PLEASEby Emanuel A. Winston, a Middle East Analyst & Commentator When the 8 Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva students were murdered on March 6th by an Israeli Arab Muslim, the pro-forma condolences poured in from many nations. For all they meant, they could have pre-printed a form with blank areas for the dates of future massacres with a blank for when and where it happened.
I am sick to death of the phony expressions of sorrow from President Bush, Secretary Rice and the other nations - while they send a king's treasure to the Terrorists, in addition to arming and training them. The first television coverage on March 6th (which was quickly terminated) showed the riotous celebrations in Gaza, with firing of weapons that sounded like firecrackers and handing out of candy (made with the sugar supplied in humanitarian shipments from Israel).
Even the be-suited Terrorist Mahmoud Abbas (aka Abu Mazen) condemned the "successful" Terrorist while his Fatah has major Terrorists operating under his banner - including Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigade, Tanzim, PFLP, Islamic Jihad - with significant input by Hezb'Allah, Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, among others. I expect Fatah and Hamas to re-united soon in their joint goal to wipe out the Jewish State.
But, Bush must have looked into Abu Mazen's eyes and seen his soul - as he did with Putin, and saw nothing but good in his "Moderate" soul.
Condi's condolences are not worth the price of an Email, given her deep antipathy for the Jewish nation, Israel, and her people. Condi says (she is still reliving her childhood) where the southern whites were savaging her black brethren. With all that bile souring her stomach, she had to regurgitate somewhere, so she picked on the Jews. In her warped psychology, Jews looked like her southern whites and the Muslim Terrorists became her blacks.
Condi, you had better keep your condolence babble inside your head rather than pretend you care about Jews being murdered by Islamic Arab Palestinians.
AS fo the nations who haunt the U.N., better they also keep their condolences for the newspapers and TV. Their knee-jerk, pro-forma condolence cards have become like a Hallmark holiday greeting card because the Terror, Rocket and Missile attacks happen so often.
As for Israel, she should return their phony expressions of condolence, marked: "Return to Sender" and ask: "What are you going to do to stop the killings?".
