Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

Terror as usual

Business as usual? Yesterday's terror attack in Tel Aviv shows how grotesque and foreseeable the political reactions have become.

A "young militant" savagely kills innocent civilians.

The Palestinian President condemns the attack saying it "harms Palestinian interests". Not a word of course that terror is a crime; from an Arab point of view, it is not.

The attack is also "condemned" by the "international community". At the same time, Israel is unambigously prompted to show "restraint" and is called upon to respect the "international humanitarian law".

The colluding news agencies bombard us with fotos of the murderer and his allegedly grieving family (sometimes we are even offered pictures of celebrating Palestinians, you know like after 9/11 for instance). No word about the victims (Hat tip: Israellycool)

The "Quartet" calls upon the parties to return to negotiations and to strive for a peaceful settlement.

New element: The Palestinian government welcomes the attack. In fact, not really new since that governement is led by Hamas, which too many people would like to become moderate and a reliable "partner". It is highly disconcerting to notice how surprised everybody seems to be after Hamas' clear statement saying the attack was legitimate. Hamas is about as moderate as Ahmadinejad. The Palestinian governement must be considered a Rogue state and be treated as such. The money which it is going to receive directly or indrectly is only going to liberate resources for its terrorist and genocidal agenda. The only appropriate step is to cut all its funds. That is democracy too: assume your choices. Let the Palestinians assume them.
