Safety Patrol, take note: It's back-to-school time all over the world, including the West Bank.

"...heading to the first day of class dropped their backpacks and threw rocks at Israeli soldiers..." adn what of those kids on the bus a week ago in Israel who are no longer alive to go back to school? I know: here we go with the back and forth, but since the post is placed amidst other more benign materiaols it seems meant to troll. So there is my response. Now we have Arafat virtually dumping Abbas, the PM, and Israel and the US saying it will not deal with Arafat; and the EU saying it will deal with Arafat; and the US and Israel saying Hamas terror group and EU saying the political end of Hamas ok so they will accept Hamas and on and on and on.
No way to get statehood, seems to me...

Nope. Just found the juxtaposition of Western parents worrying about their kids crossing traffic while the Palestinian kids were flinging rocks at tanks to be an interesting study in extremes, that's all.

Shows us how well we have it. Thats too bad that those palestinian kids have it so bad. LET THIS BE A LESSON TO ALL YOU OVERPROTECTIVE AMERICAN MOTHERS: Traffic doesnt kill like a tank kills. Fuck traffic safety for your kids. Its parts of God's way to thin out the stupid population.

Postroad, YOU'RE the one who brought up Israel v Palestine. The post itself is nothing more than an interesting contrast between the world most of us are living in and a wildly different situation happening concurrently.

A SERMON ON ETHICS AND LOVE

One day Mal-2 asked the messenger spirit Saint Gulik to approach the Goddess and request Her presence for some desperate advice. Shortly afterwards the radio came on by itself, and an ethereal female Voice said YES?

"O! Eris! Blessed Mother of Man! Queen of Chaos! Daughter of Discord! Concubine of Confusion! O! Exquisite Lady, I beseech You to lift a heavy burden from my heart!"

WHAT BOTHERS YOU, MAL? YOU DON'T SOUND WELL.

"I am filled with fear and tormented with terrible visions of pain. Everywhere people are hurting one another, the planet is rampant with injustices, whole societies plunder groups of their own people, mothers imprison sons, children perish while brothers war. O, woe."

WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THAT, IF IT IS WHAT YOU WANT TO DO?

"But nobody wants it! Everybody hates it."

OH. WELL, THEN STOP.

At which moment She turned herself into an aspirin commercial and left The Polyfather stranded alone with his species.
