If only the Jews and the Americans would stop forcing the terrorists to attack school children

One cartoon says it all:


Murdoc would humbly submit that Palestinian fighters are not the only ones fighting from behind baby carriages, and that Israeli troops aren’t the only ones defending the baby carriages, FWIW.

Found in Jay Tea’s No Recess for Terrorism which notes:

Palestinians launched a Qassam missile into a school. By what can only be described as a miracle, the Palestinian terrorists managed to 1) hit an unoccupied classroom, and 2) not have the missile’s warhead detonate, so this one goes in the books as a failed attempt to slaughter children by the scores. But since they didn’t actually manage to kill anyone, we are spared endless hand-wringing about the “cycle of violence” and other schlock that puts the Israelis and Palestinians on the same moral ground.

You know that it’s true, and you know how the story would have been spun. Recall the April story from Afghanistan in which a local police commander claimed that terrorists had fired a rocket at a school (killing six students) as part of their ongoing campaign against government-sponsored education. But the media worked pretty hard to blame a nearby coalition base for being the intended target.


  1. Terrorists have a long history of deliberately attacking children and schools, before Beslan. Back in ’74 there was the Ma’alot school massacre. http://crypticsubterranean.blogspot.com/2006/05/credit-to-dflp.html Among the numerous children murdered the most shocking crime (for me anyway) was that of 8 months pregnant Tali Hatuel and her four daughters (aged 2, 7, 9 and 11). Their car was forced off the road and the terrorists then closed in and shot them all at close range. They even made sure to shoot Tali’s pregnant belly.
