It Matters Who Wins
Saw that picture at Samizdata a couple of years ago. It's a clear, accurate illustration of the fundamental difference between the Israelis and all their jihadist enemies, not just the Pals. As for the moral imbeciles sighing over how unequal the sides are militarily, what would the terrorists be doing if they had the Merkavas, Falcons and Apaches? Same thing as now: deliberately targeting and killing as many Israeli citizens as possible. I cheered the Lebanon Cedar Revolution, and I'm not totally without some sympathy for the mess the Palestinians have created for themselves. But when terrorists, intellectuals, rightists, leftists, isolationists and internationalists everywhere start baying for Jewish national suicide, I firmly reject that.
And I still remember who was partying in the streets on 9/11.
