Quote of the day

This gem may be read on Haaretz (h/t Glenn Greenwald):

Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Israel’s operation in Gaza: “The goal of the operation is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages. Only then will Israel be calm for forty years.”

Yishai, a reactionary and leader of the Shas Party, is lying, of course. Israel will never “be calm” as long as Palestinians and other Arabs live on land it covets. The quest to achieve a Greater Israel remains intact.

    Only way you kill a dream. Must kill all the people with the same dream. Didn’t Israel learn?
    The deeds of Germany made them a strong and powerful people in WW2. Pushing someone in the corner will open the door to real violence and more death. Peace is the only option. If Israel is seeking a fight. There will be one. USA and Russian armies will leave the countries in ruin. No-one will win.
