A reasonable suggestion to counter missiles and rockets

OK, OK, it's not a serious suggestion, but it does demonstrate the frustration felt by the many Israelis living within rocket and mortar range of the terrorists in Gaza.

Boycott of Israel defies logic, morality. Couldn't agree more.

Frida Ghitis writes, Boycott of Israel defies logic, morality -
If you want to work against peace between Israelis and Palestinians, if your aim is to ensure the two sides never work out their differences, then it’s a really good idea to support the boycott of Israel.
Ms. Ghitis is not being ironic; she's pointing out that efforts such as these undermine Israeli willingness to trust the "other side" in any sort of negotiations.

In my opinion, it is the bedfellows of anti-Israel and Jew-hatred incitement, and anarchistic groups, that causes Israel to hunker down.

As she says,
Boycotts against Israel are the worst possible way to help Palestinians. They are such a terrible idea that even Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas declared he opposes them.
Boycotts are a bad idea, a very bad idea when it comes to singling our Israel and its Jews.

That's my opinion.

After 3-Year Freeze, Government Seeks "Prompt Resolution" of Al-Arian Case

This is from the truth is stranger than fiction department.  Terror supporter Sami Al-Arian is still waiting a decision in his contempt of court case after everyone was promised one three years ago.

Here's the incredulous report from the IPT.

After 3-Year Freeze, Government Seeks "Prompt Resolution" of Al-Arian Case :: The Investigative Project on Terrorism

By way of background, Al-Arian is an admitted supporter of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) that was responsible for the April 9, 1995 terror attack that murdered Alisa Flatow and 7 others.  Unfortunately, his trial did not result in any convictions of the more serious charges.  He pleaded guilty to the support charge to avoid a re-trial.

He should be thankful that he has not been deported where a crueler fate could await him.

Well, that's what I have to say.
