    REG: Right. You’re in. Listen. The only people we hate more than the Romans are the fucking Judean People’s Front.

    P.F.J.: Yeah…

    JUDITH: Splitters.

    P.F.J.: Splitters…

    FRANCIS: And the Judean Popular People’s Front.

    P.F.J.: Yeah. Oh, yeah. Splitters. Splitters…

    LORETTA: And the People’s Front of Judea.

    P.F.J.: Yeah. Splitters. Splitters…

    REG: What?

    LORETTA: The People’s Front of Judea. Splitters.

    REG: We’re the People’s Front of Judea!

    LORETTA: Oh. I thought we were the Popular Front.

    REG: People’s Front! C-huh.

    FRANCIS: Whatever happened to the Popular Front, Reg?

    REG: He’s over there.

    P.F.J.: Splitter!

    It will not be that much ironic. It will be business as usual.

    In Iraq it started with ‘Anbar Awakening’.

    If in Gaza it will start with ‘another Awakening’ then it will be ironic.

    I was hoping SM would touch on this issue.

    It’s all Israel’s fault !!!!! =)

    Israel must be loving this. How is the rest of the world supposed to take the Palestinians seriously if they can’t even sustain peace amongst themselves. I mean WTF ? Why are these people incapable of dealing with their issues at the negotiating table. It’s almost a joke how Arab unity is the cry heard around the world and how Muslims should unite against the oppresive West but then they prove that they are not even capable to getting past their own difference. How are we in the West supposed to give credence to the terrosits rallying cry ?

    Why does every single issue end in violence and of the most serious nature ? Every nation in the world has opposing sides, citizens who oppose the views of others. Why is that so many Arabs feel that the only way to get their point across is through seething hatred and extreme violence ?

    As much as I feel that Israel has been responsible for some of the chaos in Palestine, at least from a historic standpoint, they finally give in and give the Palestinians more autonomy and the Palestinians have blown it.

    Instead of stepping up to the plate and taking advantage of an incredible opportunity to advance their country, they have only proven that they are not capable of resolving their issues in a civilized manner.

    If only Hamas played the game and tried to mend fences with Israel, they might finally actually build a better place for their people. Let’s face it, if suddenly Israel felt that it could find a true peaceful partner in the Palestinians, just imagine how the borders would open up and how suddenly we might find the kind of cooperation that one sees between let’s say the French and the Spanish. Two completely unique civilizations working together to further the cause of their people.

    How are the Palestinians going to spin the farce that is Palestine right now ? You want aid to start flowing again then shut the fuck up and stop the Isreal must die rhetoric and show the world that your ready to roll up your sleeves and get on with the task of building a viable country for the next generation of Palestinians. But then how can this happen when they can’t even put down their guns against each other long enough to realize that this should be the goal ?

    Why should anyone give a shit about the Palestinian cause ? It really makes anyone who wishes the best for the Palestinian people give up completely on giving a shit. The term ” god only helps those who help themselves ” comes to mind.

    What is most ironic that ” saving face ” is such a driving force in Arab culture and yet so many of the militant Arabs fail to see how those of us who are sane just view these guys as complete clowns.

    I would love to see the Palestinian people rise and prosper in peace but it is very hard to feel any empathy when they systematically refuse to deal with issues in a civilized way. All they are doing now is to give credence to Israels argument that the Palestinians are the cause of all of the strife in the region.

    Israel was very smart to pull out of Palestine because they have robbed the Palestinians of their primary fallback excuse that it is Israel’s fault that Palestine is in the state it’s in. Now the world can see that the Palestinians are the true cause of so much of the regions problems.

    The only saddness I feel is for the thousands of peaceful Palestinians that just want to get on with their lives, provide for their families and live in peace.

    All sarcasm aside…this is the same story for 50 years or more. Israel is no angel…but the other side just cannot get their act together. All significant issues seem to deteriorate into violence, towards Israel and among themselves. The Palestinians kill each other, the Lebanese, the Syrians, the Iraqis, Yemens, Sudanese, and I guess the Egyptians would also except the people are so utterly repressed they cannot get themselves into much trouble.

    How can Israel seriously negotiate with these guys? With whom? There is NO stablility no centralized and respected governing body…primarily a whole lot of rage, blame and chaos.

    See, Frenchman? That wasn’t so hard. ;-)

    To gain the support of the entire Israeli peacenik crowd, all Hamas had to say was that Israel has a right to exist. That would have enough to start yet another push for “talks” with “areeable enemies”. Instead, they stubbornly focused on empty ‘hudna’ rhetoric while their top men publicly discussed war and destruction. The end result was sadly predictable.

    And I don’t see much of a point with trying to reach an agreement with Fatah either, they simply do not have any real clout. Fatah’s own armed branch refuses to listen to the politicians…

    It’s a mess, all about pride, twisted honor, and hatred…

    What is ironic is that the world does not expect civilized behaviour and the following of some rule of law from the Palestinians. Their police/soldiers fire on and kill stone-throwing civilians and the world *yawns*. I guess I’d be waiting a long time for the U.N. to spring into action and condemn Hamas. I’d say their lack of action and the lack of expectations is kind of racist: anti-Arab in that the violence must be cultural/inate and thus not criticized and anti-Israeli in that Israel can’t even build a wall to protect her citizens from human bombs without the United Nations screaming about “inconveniences” and human rights.
