Aww, the Little Rascals. . .OR: Melamine Phillips and the Art of Projectile Vomiting . . .
Awww, bless him. The little tyke.
How vomit-inducing can it get?
I can't wait until the NYT prints:
IDF returns life to all the little innocents it burned/shot/bombed/beat to death
But the clincher will be when they print
IDF soldiers return to give toys and candy to all the little amputees/paraplegics/PTSD-Victims/Orphans/Future-Suicide-Bombers it just created
I didn't even read the comments.
Speaking of Vomit . . .
Anyone seen what the delightful Melanie Phillips, Racist-In-Residence at The Spectator wrote recently?
She starts off with the quite excellent:
Of course Hague was careful to say the truth of this evidence was not yet known. But there is no evidence. So far, there is simply nothing to prove or disprove from these reports of the soldiers’ discussion carried in Ha’aretz last week, here and here -- just innuendo, rumour and hearsay, demonstrably (read the second account) wrenched out of context and refracted through the patent prejudice of the soldiers’ instructor Danny Zamir,
and then trumps it with ladle-fuls of "innuendo, rumour and hearsay," herself.
Funny sort of unethical military behaviour, that goes to some lengths to empty houses of civilians before storming them. Indeed, the soldiers’ discussion contains more such material totally contradicting the impression of gross violations of ethics. Such as this:What annoyed me was that in the end, after we understood that the members of this family weren't exactly our good friends and they pretty much deserved to be forcibly ejected from there, my platoon commander suggested that when we left the house, we should clean up all the stuff, pick up and collect all the garbage in bags, sweep and wash the floor, fold up the blankets we used, make a pile of the mattresses and put them back on the beds.
Quite brilliant really, considering that she's totally bonkers and a racist.
