How Palestinians Resolve Their Differences
There's been some infighting between Palestinian terrorist groups lately. How do they kiss and make up? By murdering a few Israelis. A Palestinian barbarian, uh, official, praised the murders of innocent people in a bakery in Eilat by a Palestinian suicide bomber. Via CNN:

A Palestinian suicide bomber attacked a bakery in this southern Israeli resort town on Monday, killing himself and three people, police said. It was the first suicide bombing in Israel in nine months and the first ever to hit Eilat, Israel's southernmost city.

A spokesman for Hamas, the radical Islamic group that controls the Palestinian parliament and Cabinet, praised the bombing as a "natural response" to Israeli policies -- a position likely to complicate the group's efforts to end a crippling aid boycott imposed by the international community.

Two Palestinian militant groups, Islamic Jihad and the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, claimed joint responsibility for the attack.

Both groups said the attack was meant to help bring an end to weeks of Palestinian infighting that has killed more than 60 people in the Gaza Strip since December.

Gunmen from Hamas and the rival Fatah Party battled each other across the Gaza Strip on Monday, attacking security compounds, knocking out an electrical transformer and kidnapping several local commanders. Four people were killed.

"The operation has a clear message to the Palestinian rivals. It is necessary to end the infighting and point the guns toward the occupation that has hurt the Palestinian people," a posting on the Islamic Jihad Web site said.

What's hurt the Palestinian people is their unwillingness to live in peace with the Israelis. If they just wanted to make a few bucks and go to Israeli universities (as students, not murderers)...do you think the Israelis would have any beef with them at all?

As I've pointed out before, imagine how you'd feel (and how we'd respond) if Mexicans in this country started blowing up dry cleaners, bakeries, and Starbucks.

UPDATE: Ever wonder what kind of advice Palestinian moms give their suicide bomber children? Wonder no more. Treacher has it here:

* Look both ways before crossing the street to blow up a bakery full of filthy Jews.
* Never talk to strangers, unless they're Jews, in which case you're allowed to tell them "Allah Akbar" before you destroy them.
* If you drop a piece of food on the ground, you can still eat it as long as you pick it up within 5 seconds. Unless it's a bagel, because that means you haven't wiped out all the Jews yet.
* Always wash your hands after using the toilet or handling Semtex.
* If you just follow your heart and believe in yourself, you can blow up anything!

He also wisely advises, "Don't ever do a Google image search for 'suicide bomber.'"

Nah, Mexicans are too responsible and hard-working.

And, in my experience, they want to be a part of what we're doing here. There was a piece in the LA Times today about how Cesar Millan, who's a Mexican immigrant to the US, got choked up about making a difference in our country.

Yeah, that's the ticket: Make a difference, not bombs!

If those damned Palestinians would just behave, the world would be much better off.

And as my mom would say, "If a frog had wings..."

"A spokesman for Hamas, the radical Islamic group that controls the Palestinian parliament and Cabinet, praised the bombing as a 'natural response' to Israeli existance... er I mean policies"
