Much to everyone's apparent astonishment the Gazans are celebrating the current massacre and genocide of their own people.
After what can only be described as one of the most vicious unwarranted massacres in human history, the brutalized Gazans have taken to the streets in wild celebration upon their great victory over the illegal Zionist entity.
Writing in Y-Net, Roi Kais tells us:
After 50 days of hiding underground, former Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh took to the stage at a rally in Gaza on Wednesday, declaring that the group's victory over Israel in the IDF's Operation Defensive Edge was unprecedented.Why does this remind me of the Twilight Zone?
"It is impossible to make do with words and speeches to express this victory," he said. "The victory is beyond the boundaries of time and place. This battle is a war that had no precedent in the history of the conflict with the enemy."
You're traveling through another dimension -- a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's a signpost up ahead: your next stop: the Twilight Zone!The genocide that the Zionists committed against the indigenous Palestinian population is among the most cruel military campaigns in over the last one hundred years. The Israelis indiscriminately pounded Gaza by air killing thousands of people, mainly women and children, particularly children and most particularly the tender and delicious ones. Nonetheless:
You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into... the Twilight Zone.
The celebrations in Gaza began Tuesday night, shortly after the ceasefire took hold. Bursts of gunfire were heard in Gaza City; men packed into vehicles, waving and flashing victory signs. Images showed Hamas official Fawzi Barhoum being hoisted onto the shoulders of jubilant Gazans.Meanwhile, in Israel, the brutal Jews seem rather depressed over their defeat of the celebratory and victorious Gazans. Even as Israel laid waste to the entire Gaza Strip, leaving virtually nothing standing, the heroic Gazan resistors danced in the streets and handed out candy to little Hamasniks in training who they are very much looking forward to pushing into the front lines in the years ahead.
In truth, what we are witnessing is the fact that Hamas met its objectives in this recent spasm while Israel did not. The reason for this is that Hamas's objectives were largely in the realm of propaganda and politics and they set the bar for victory so low that merely survival counted as such. Israel's failed objectives were largely military, required a high bar to achieve, and cannot be considered complete until Hamas is effectively terminated as a force in the strip.
Since Netanyahu decided against demanding unconditional surrender, Hamas lives to fight another day. But that simply represents the status quo anti. Hamas is still there and clearly still able to terrorize and wreck southern Israel. Jews have moved away from the area and for reasons that are entirely obvious do not wish to move back.
Hamas, on the other hand, has gained legitimacy in the eyes of the western powers and can stand before the local Arab population with their heads held high because they outlasted their far more powerful enemy. The reason for this is because the international community, with Barack Obama leading from behind, will never allow an honest Israeli victory over their Arab tormentors and thereby consign the Jews of the Middle East to a never-ending war of attrition, for which those very Jews will be endlessly blamed.
The big loser in this thing - aside from the dead and the families of the dead, and the Jewish people, more generally, however - is Benjamin Netanyahu whose approval numbers in Israel are in the toilet, dropping a whopping 44 points in recent weeks, largely due to the fact that the Israelis wanted him to finish the job and he did not.
44 points. This has to be the single fastest and hardest fall in polling numbers for any western-type politician that I have seen in my life with, perhaps, Richard Nixon as a possible exception.
Ultimately all Netanyahu did was kick the can down the road where we will see it again, in its next larger mutated form, sometime in the next few years. In the mean time, sadly, southern Israel may very well become emptied of Jews who do not wish to raise their children under Hamas rocket fire.
As far as the rest of the world is concerned, Arabs have every right to ethnically-cleanse Jews from southern Israel because the Jews are allegedly mean to Arabs. No one cares that S'derot and Ashkelon, and all the little kibbutzim and communities around there, endured something like 14 or 15 years of more or less continual harassment and rocket fire, making life impossible, even as western progressives scoffed and called them "bottle rockets."
Dana Bar-on left kibbutz Nir Am, just west of S'derot, when the savages popped out of the ground for the purpose of dragging her, or her friends and family, into a terrorist tunnel. She lived in that area almost all of her life and her grandmother was a founder of that agricultural kibbutz.
I wonder if she will ever return.
And who could blame her if she did not?
The western-left will not be happy until the land of the Jews is truncated into little more than Tel Aviv and environs.
The Arabs won't be happy until the Jews of the Middle East are returned to their previous condition of submission and dhimmitude.
And the Jews of the diaspora have their heads so firmly implanted into the ground that they have no idea which is way is up.
