  1. One wonders when American taxpayers will start to question the huge sums of foreign aid given to Israel every year even when its economy is doing well. Has this flow of boodle from taxpayers — many of whom do not live as well as the average Israeli Jew — become a kind of Israeli “entitlement” like social security and medicare for US citizens?

  2. RE: “And instead of arresting the Palestinian, the policeman shot this father of five dead.” – R.S.
    MY COMMENT: It pains me to say so, but he has undoubtedly “gone to a better place”. And I don’t believe in heaven or hell (at least not in the sense of an “afterlife”). More like the bearable heaviness of not being.
    But then, I’m admittedly in one of my more misanthropic moods as a consequence of having watched Christiane Amanpour’s town hall debate yesterday and listening to the likes of Franklin Graham, Robert Spencer, Bauer the Twit, that guy with the world’s fattest neck (and one of it’s more insubstantial brains) and that fundamentalist Muslim ‘nut job’ from the U.K.
    I suppose I should look on the bright side: no Hagee, Geller, Pipes or Lewis! Thank G-d for small favours. (I used the ‘u’ so as not to offend Bernard.)

  3. I saw in the Israeli reportage of this incident that the victim and his companions were said to have been caught “infiltrating” Israel. It’s always something like that. Poor Palestinians looking for work are “infiltrators” unless they’re coming through the checkpoint to work on the construction of illegal West Bank settlements.

    How one can be shot to death for “infiltrating” his own land is beyond me.
