There is no justification, religious or political for this...

It is times like this when I wonder about the sanity of the world in allowing hostile regimes, however democratically elected, to threaten their neighbors. Isn't this what the United Nations was supposed to prevent while presenting a forum where all grievances could be openly heard? Instead the United Nations has become a bloated, corrupt and impotent bureaucracy run for the benefit of its so-called leadership.

"Hamas hails 'heroic' Jerusalem attack"


Exactly what is "heroic" about a gunman emptying an automatic weapon into a school to kill children?

"The Palestinian Hamas movement hailed a deadly attack on a Jewish religious school in Jerusalem on Thursday night as 'heroic,' without claiming responsibility for the strike that killed eight."

"Normal response? ..."

"'This heroic attack in Jerusalem is a normal response to the crimes of the occupier and its murder of civilians,' Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said."

Blaming the victims...

"Another spokesman, Taher al-Nunu, blamed the attack on Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defence Minister Ehud Barak and the Israeli government."

"'We have warned before about the responsibility of the escalation in Gaza and warned of Palestinian anger,' Nunu said."

Celebrating the death of children...

"Hundreds of Palestinians poured into the streets of Gaza City as news of the attack at a west Jerusalem yeshiva spread, firing automatic rifles into the air in celebration."

Note what they don't say -- about the rockets launched against civilian targets...

"Several more hundred people likewise celebrated in the northern town of Jabaliya, which has borne the brunt of deadly Israeli military strikes over the past eight days that have killed more than 130 Palestinians in Gaza amid a sharp escalation of violence in and around the impoverished territory."

What can YOU do?

Condemn terrorism wherever it is found.

Condemn religious and political fanatics wherever they are found.

It is times like this when I believe that the Israeli's should help each and every one of the cowardly hostile Hamas representatives achieve the pinnacle of their religious beliefs: martyrdom. And it is times like this when the leadership of Benjamin Netanyahu is sorely needed to provide the direction to a more lasting peace.
