Dude! They were beggin for it!
Well Israelis are understandably upset at the burnings of Synagogues by Palestinian mobs in Gaza. However if you’d like to parlay your righteous indignation into a little stint of arson, better think twice if you cherish your immortal soul. I say this as Chief Sephardi Rabbi Shlomo Amar reportedly contemplates the possibility of placing into Cherem (ban) any Jew that damages mosques in retaliation.
‘What right do Jews have to hurt the places of worship of other faiths?’ he asked. A Cherem would prevent a Jew from joining others in prayer or in meals and other Jews cannot come closer than about six feet from the ostracized.
Wow. Given some of the really silly stuff that’s been coming out of the Sephardi Rabbinate, it’s refreshing to hear something, you know, reasonable. In any case, if you really are pissed off, please direct your anger at the people who are really to blame – namely … *sigh* … the Jews of course. See, leaving the synagogues there was nothing more than a nefarious plot by the Jews to make the Palestinians look bad. The clever Jews knew that the Palestinians could scarce be expected to control themselves and respect houses of worship. The burning of the synagogues was inevitable, just like when a cute chick walks down the street in a skimpy outfit and shit happens… just like the synagogues, she was, you know, asking for it. Thanks for that explanation Mahmud Abbas. Good luck with the nation building. In the meantime, the search for Muslim condemnation of the synagogue burnings has netted scant results.
Oh hey! Remember those greenhouses that a bunch of American Jews paid $14 million for and then transferred to the Palestine Authority? Good start to a new economic base in Gaza? Nope. Looted. Whatcha gonna do. Former World Bank President James Wolfensohn, who brokered the deal, and put up 500,000 dollars of his own cash to buy the greenhouses would have been better off using the cash to buy us a Jewlicious club house. Dang.
