The United Nations has voted to recognize the Palestinian territories as a state and the Palestinians are celebrating wildly right now. The UN has been taken over by Arab and other Muslim nations, so this is no real surprise to anyone watching.
Logically, the “new state” will now start setting up diplomatic relations and opening embassies everywhere they can, and demanding free air traffic to and from their “state”. This will include an immediate demand to end Israels blockade of their ports. Israel has no choice but to refuse this recognition and the demands, as otherwise they’ll have a growing hostile military power in their midst. Right now its been a steady rain of exploding rockets, but with the Palestinian gates wide open, things would get much worse in a big hurry.
This move by those running the UN show now is designed purely as an attack on Israel. More and more pressure is being brought to bear on this little Jewish state, and one hell of an explosion is unavoidable. People never think ahead. Those fools in the UN are only thinking about their Islamic hatred of Jews and not about what comes of their actions. They think that this will speed up Israel’s demise, but if it does, don’t they understand that it wil mean their destruction too?
That’s the problem. They probably do understand it, but Islam worships death.
Other ugliness in the news and no, I’m not going to link this one either. Look it up if you’re really interested. A 64 year old guy in Minnesota had his home burglarized last month and the thieves took cash, over $10,000 in gold and coins, and a bunch of other valuable stuff, according to the owner.
It may have been the same thieves returning, and from what I’ve read of the male culprit’s history, it’s likely. In any case, the home owner wanted revenge, and who could blame him? So when he heard intruders in his home, he sat there in the basement with some guns and when the thieves came down the stairs he executed them both.
It was a guy and girl, she was 18 and he was 17. A thief is a thief and if one gets caught rifling someone’s home, and they get killed, too bad. The sad part to me is their ages, for one, and that the homeowner will undoubtedly go to prison for the rest of his life for killing them.
This is one of those moral delimma things for many people. Personally I don’t think I could have gone so far as to have shot them both in the head as a coup de grace, after they were already riddled with bullets, which is what he did. But if I had, I would never have gone to the cops afterward, since you can bet the thieves didn’t advertise their intentions before setting out to steal. He could have planted them somewhere on his farm and that would have been that.
What really strikes me about this more than any what-ifs or moral choices, is the mind-set of the old farmer. We know that robberies increase during bad economic times, but what about the victims also ignoring the law? The police were never able to find out who robbed him and he never got a thing back. So when he had the chance to put an end to the thievery, he took it without regard for the law. I can see why he did and what I’m wondering is how many others are taking matters in their own hands too?
It’s not just the economy that’s going downhill. My mailman was telling me just yesterday that people are following the United Parcel trucks and stealing the packages they leave on peoples porches. Crime is growing. Citizens are arming themselves. The legal line is always a thin one at best and if you can get away with dealing with some thug your way, why not?
