A friend of mine lives within shouting distance of Palestinian villages in the West Bank.
A few days ago, I was sitting in his barber chair having my head shortened, when he told me that you can hear the Palestinians celebrate when Hizbullah rockets hit Israel.
I said, “You mean, THAT is the reason why I keep hearing fireworks every night?” (I’m not so far from the Palestinians myself.)
“Yup,” he responded. “That’s the reason.”
You’d think that I’d get used to this. You’d think that I would be immune when Arabs celebrate the death of Israelis. But, I’m not.
And, it illustrates a key difference between Arab and Jew. The Jews mourn when civilians are killed. The Arabs celebrate.
Just look at Hizbullah. Their radio stations gloat over the number of Israeli civilian deaths. To Hizbullah, killing Israeli civilians is the POINT.
This gloating has been going on for DAYS.
What I’d like to know then, is why are the Lebanese so upset when Israel ACCIDENTLY kills civilians – and is sorry about it?
After all, the Lebanese stand idly by and allow Hizbullah to gloat over every dead Israeli father, mother and child. Why are they so upset? Isn’t it true that ‘Turn-about is fair play’?
And, WHY isn’t the international media reporting on this?
I had to hear this from the mouth of a LEBANESE woman.
