Diane Mason of Lawrenceofcyberia.com has put together an extraordinary series of images of international Arab protests against the murder of Sheik Yassin, the leader of Hamas. The collage of rage gives one a humbling feeling when one thinks of the level of hatred and mayhem that will be coming Israel’s way in the very near future. Saying this gives me no pleasure whatsoever because Israelis have as much right to live in peace and security as their Palestinian neighbors. But “those who sow the wind shall reap the whirlwind.” And Sharon and his henchmen have sown the bleakest wind with this horrible act.
They have not increased Israeli’s security. They have not even wiped out their worst enemy. They have, in fact, just raised up a thousand or even ten thousand Yassins who will do their best to raise the level of destruction against Israel even higher than whatever level Yassin achieved.
As I viewed Diane’s page of rage, I had the kind of admiring (& slightly jealous!) reaction that an actor or writer gets when he/she sees a brilliant performance or reads a great work of prose and wishes that he/she had performed or written it him/herself. Great work, Diane!
