Palestinian Doubletalk

In today's Jerusalem Post, there is a dubious article titled Palestinians condemn London bombings.

Why do I call it dubious? No, I don't question the article itself, merely the fact that Palestinians quoted "condemned" Thursday's tragic events in London on the one hand, adding that they believe such acts can be harmful to Muslims and Arabs, then attempted to justify the bombings from the terrorists' perspective.

Here is a good example, courtesy of Hamas. After condemning that which they specialize in(attacking the innocent, et al) they continue:

"We in Hamas call upon the international community to stop all forms of occupation and aggression against Arabs and Muslims, especially in Palestine, Iraq and Iraq(quotation as it appears in the article), "said the statement. "The continuation of the occupation and aggression will lead to more tensions, hatred and bomb blasts."

I'm reminded of that terrorist in True Lies called Aziz, the "Sand Spider", when he is raving into the videocam about how he'll use his stolen nukes to "rain fire" on American cities if his demands are not met.

That's all that's about.

Oh, and of course there's the usual condolence/ deplorement bit from Arafat heir Fatah whip/ PA owner Mahmoud Abbas to Prime Minister Tony Blair, principally, I suspect, because Abbas desperately needs friends. It's not an unrealistic idea that Hamas might eventually take down Fatah and rule the Palestinians(yes, I said "rule", terrorist organizations don't support democratic causes the way Democrats support terrorist causes), using the polls to achieve this goal. 

The article points out the fact that unlike in the aftermath of 9/11, the Palestinians didn't party in the streets after the London bombings. Of course they didn't, because they learned the first time what the rest of the world thinks of animals who joyously celebrate the butchery of large quantities of "infidels".

This time, they're trying to put a humane face on themselves, but don't be fooled: Even as they "condemn" a terrorist attack, they plan their own such operations against innocent men, women and children in Israel. 

Recent history has shown that the late Rabbi Meir Kahane was right.
