Pigs, Flying?

That's what I thought when I saw this headline from the AP:

Scared Gazans clamoring to enter Israel

Israel's new defense minister ordered the army on Wednesday to allow into Israel any of the hundreds of Gazans holed up at a fetid crossing who might desperately need medical treatment.
A teenager with leukemia was on his way through shortly after, the military said....

Wonder if they can vote for the return of the hated occupiers in their next election cycle - assuming Hamas ever allows another election, of course...

Anyway, you can cancel the flying pigs alert - the AP, rather than discuss the ironies and decisons that created the hordes of Palestinians clamoring for Israeli help, instead devotes much of the article to a complaint from a liberal Israeli group that this whole "humanitarian crisis" is actually not the fault of the rampaging Hamas militia, but the responsibility of Israel itself:

But the humanitarian cases are being processed dangerously slow, the Israeli branch of Physicians for Human Rights contended in a petition before the Israeli Supreme Court.
Ran Yaron, a doctor with the group, told Israel Radio on Wednesday that the lives of 15 of the patients were in danger and the necessary treatment was not available in the Gaza Strip.


"Israel has a responsibility since it closed the ... crossings," Yaron said. "It has the responsibility to find a solution for these patients."

Let's see...the Israelis succumb to international pressure, leave Gaza to the Palestinians (complete with all infrastructure) and pay them millions monthly in tax revenue. The Palestinians then destroy all said infrastructure and elect a Islamists militant group to lead them, who then wages war against Israel and turns the Strip into a chamber of blood, fear, and death. Ergo, the responsibility lies with the Israelis...

Of course! Logic so subtle only a liberal (or the Boston Globe editorial board) can parse it for us....

Last I looked at a map, the Gaza Strip, IN ISRAEL (but we won't go there), also bordered Egypt, and I don't see headlines about beleaguered Palestinians clamoring to gain entry into the Sinai wilderness, where they'll be amongst their own people who, you would think, would be the first to give their brothers a helping hand and administer medical attention.

It's pointless, and worthless to think that now that the Joos are letting the Palestinians in through the Erez Crossing, that NOW the world, just maybe, will finally see that we are not the bad guys.

But you know as soon as this crisis abates, if ever, they will go right back to hating the Israselis' guts and blaming the direction the wind blows on them.

Logic can not be had with these idjits.

Good point - where are all those champions of the Palestinian cause, now that the poor folk of Gaza are in peril? Are they too ashamed to help, as it would evidence how evil the Islamist parties are, or do they hate the Palestinians more than any Jew ever did; and are just using them as pawns to further their war againt Israel?
