Some thoughts on Jewish terrorism

Some reflections on a video on extremist Israelis, from an exposé done by Frontline (PBS).

I encourage the viewing of these videos since they are quite interesting and informative on a group of people that I should have thought would exist but just never really thought about (since I'm lazy). But I want to react to what I've seen in relation to the moral rightness in the Israeli-Palestinian conflicts.

First, let us remember who started this whole terrorist-let's-blow-up-little-kids-at-school thing, shall we? And who honed it to perfection? So it is, to be perfectly honest, just a little bit understandable why these people are so mad.
Second, who is the "bad guy" to these terrorists in these videos? It's Israeli State Security forces. They are the ones who stop the bombings and interrogate the terrorists and imprison them. A free society policing itself. Why doesn't this happen in, I don't know, pretty much anywhere else in the Middle East? Where are the Arab govts who imprison Wahhabists for threats against other nationalities, which is exactly what happened in Video 2 when Israel's Secret Svc and police prevented and followed up on a plot to blow up an Arab girls' school?

...crickets chirping...

Finally, it is so very interesting how the guys in Video 1 claim that their support is from the Torah. Hmm, where is that exactly? Oppose that to Islam, whose founder, Mohammed, spread his religion thru violence. Jihadists do nothing more or less than follow his example, and I daresay they do (and have done, knowing the history of Islam) a better job of following his edicts for Islamic evangelism than modern Muslims (especially in the USA) do...

I would say that the "blow-up-little-kids-at-school" thing was a direct result of the "thrown-out-of-my-home-by-UN-placed-strangers" thing. Not only that, but they're then shoved into a corner and used as objects of ridicule (and, sometimes, target practice) by the ISS fellas. So I think they, too, have a little bit of a reason to be mad. Goes both ways.

The rest of yo' comments, I gots no problems wit'. I think that, had the Palestinians actually risen up as a people against Hamas, we'd have had all this behind us long ago...given, though, that they thought that they had no other weapon against an indifferent occupational presence, it was easier to just get caught up in the terrorist/counter-terrorist cycle.
