Guardian: “Israel finally stops taking it easy on Palestine.”

by Kit

After years of criticism for their soft-heartedness, and hundreds of Israeli casualties from savage stone-throwing-related terrorist attacks, Israel is finally taking a stern line on the Palestinian issue.

This the world The Guardian lives in. Or, at least, pretends to live in when they publish headlines like this

That is the Guardian’s description of the new rules Israel just introduced, that will allow armed soldiers to shoot live ammunition at children who throw stones at them.

These changes are described as “tough new rules”, I imagine in much the same way that the Spanish Inquisition could be considered “a sterner line on the heretic issue”.

This is a good thing really, especially for those of us who harbor a lot of rage. For example: Next time a person cuts you off in traffic, feel free to follow them, run them off the road and stab them in the eyes. While such behaviour, in times past, may have merited the description “murderous”, “illegal” or even “psychotic”…we have moved on now. In the Guardian’s brave new world such actions could be simply described as “tough new rules for reckless drivers” or that you had “relaxed your anti-stabbing policy”.

The Israeli’s are savages, simple savages.

God’s justice will prevail against “God’s chosen people”.

As is typical in such cases, the Guardian has kept its comments section closed. They rarely allow comments in regard to Israel any more.

Pleased to see Israel will soon stop going easy on the Palestinians. After all, being shot dead only once for complying with an occupier’s orders is far far too lenient. These people need shooting dead at least twice, show them who’s boss.

Reblogged this on wgrovedotnet and commented:

It is wrong to make light of Israel’s cruelty and apartheid attitude toward the Palestinians but this article made my eyes pop out of my head…until I read the rest of the heading. The most immoral army in the world has now been given further incentive to murder women and children daring to protest their inhuman prisoner status by throwing stones.

Would it be considered undemocratic to zap all the Guardian’s computers with high-voltage electricity. Aren’t the Americans preparing a microwave bomb to cook weapon-systems. We might get to cook The dreadful Shaun Walker as well. Quite a bonus.
