Interesting insights from Interesting places

reading my usual non-j-Blogs and seeing what they have to say about Israel (mostly Palestinian and their supporters), I was Shocked to see this post by Saba from Bahrain and Beyond about the New Hamas "police/security/something or rather force" trying to take control in the Gaza Streets.

But what really got me was this comment from The moody Mistrel (from Japan):

    Okay, let's see...

    An extremist group is elected into office by democratic vote, chosen by a disaffected population that sees it as heroes who will finally save the troubled nation. The group then establishes a "popular militia", saying that it is there to "keep order" and "ensure justice". However, in reality the militia ends up doing the group's dirty work, eliminating rivals, suppressing dissent, and oppressing those that do not share their moral, political, or religious beliefs.

    Wait a minute...I'm getting confused. Was I talking about the Palestinian territories in the 2000s or Germany in the 1930s?

Nothing much else to say after that.

why were you shocked?

It's not so much a matter of shocked as relieved, at least for me. There are a lot of pro-Palestinian and even Palestinian bloggers who are so keen on blaming Israel for everything that they're even blaming what's now going on in the Strip on Israel. You are actually one of the first bloggers to actually stand up and call a spade a spade as it applies to what HAMAS is doing right now. I applaud your efforts. Not everyone is willing to do what you've done.

Heh well i hope you could do the same and stop viewing the Palestinians as rats or merely objects but view them as humans, who want a secure life. When i first started blogging i was one of the bloggers you mentioned, and i believed in suicide bombigs and thought it was the only way to achieve freedom. But come one who are we kidding here? a stone cant beat a F16 now can it? The other day we had this speaker from Michigan who came to speak for Palestine. She said that she believed the only way to freedom is suicidal attacks. I was surprised that i snapped and stood up after she finished and i was able to prove her wrong!and convince everyone else in the room that she was wrong! anyhow my perspective of the situation had changed dramatically. And Hamas...fucking shit i hate it...its a plague that will get all palestinians killed...

Saba, thank you for your honesty. Although, I must say that I nor my husband has ever publically or even privately considered or thought of Palestinians as "rats" or "objects". I really don't know where you would get that impression.

I, too, applaud Saba whom I've personally attacked in the past and am now sorry.

Greg, thank you too for your honesty. It's always appreciated. I hold it in the highest regard.
