THE SO-CALLED PALESTINIAN ARABS. EXCERPT:
The elected governors of the Palestinians have now murdered their way into complete control of Gaza, with a display of barbarity that sets a new standard for depravity (throwing political opponents to their death off roofs, killing men in front of their wives and children, raiding hospitals to find more opponents to murder).IOW: THE BLAME AMERICA FIRST CROWD.
I don't think this is the result of a "hands off" policy of the Bush administration.
But the "hands off" accusation, trumpeted by the New York Times in the opening paragraphs of its "news" story on Gaza, illustrates a number of points about the perspective of the perennial peace processors.
