Are you ready for the next drop away descent on this roller coaster of alternate periods of hopeful sanity and 180° looniness? (When was the last actual move or gesture that seemed sensibly protective and fruitful anyway??)
"Members of the most active West Bank terror organization are set to participate in security forces being deployed to protect President Bush during his visit to the Palestinian territories next month...
According to Israeli security officials coordinating deployments of forces with the PA for Bush's Ramallah visit, members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah's declared military wing, have been called upon by the PA to participate in the protection of Bush's convoy and in securing the perimeter during the meeting with Abbas.
The Brigades is listed as a terror organization by the U.S. State Department. The group took credit along with the Islamic Jihad terror organization for every suicide bombing in Israel between 2005 and 2006, and is responsible for thousands of shootings and rocket firings. Statistically, the Al Aqsa Brigades perpetuated more terrorism from the West Bank than Hamas, according to the Israeli Defense Forces..."
I struggle to find words to describe this incredibly blatant move of stupidity! How can Bush and Co. be so utterly naive and place this country at such a perilous doorstep inviting catastrophe? How does this game of all inclusiveness in the name of the Cult of PC trump our knowledge of the history of such terrorists? On the heels of the Bhutto assassination, has Jorge become suicidal also?
You will never get to the end of the list of the atrocities committed by the Al Aqsa Brigades, but in the interest of illustration I will point you to this exceptionally well organized timeline presented by LindaSog of 'Something... and Half of Something'. If you are not a reader of her excellent anti-Islamicist blog, the following excerpts from her post will give you a strong whiff of her unwavering grasp of the here and now:
"I understand your concern but remember, President Bush has given Mahmoud Abbas and Fatah his official Seal of Approval. The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades is the military arm of Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah Party and they are armed and trained by the US, using US tax dollars.
I'm tired of the double standard, why does the War on Terror stop at Israel's border?
Given President Bush's support of Abbas and his merry band of terrorists, he should put his life into their hands, just as he has asked Israeli citizens to do. If there are consequences, well, he should suffer them. If something horrible happens, I would say he has reaped what he has sown.
And if Fatah does kill him, well, they'll just blame it on Hamas.
The "moderate" Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigages is President Bush's pet terrorist group and they have been killing Jews for over 40 years.
Its a funny thing about terrorists, whether you call them extremist or moderate, no matter which brand of terrorist kills you, you are still dead, as are all of these innocent people killed by Israel's Partners in Peace™ - Mahmoud Abbas's moderates, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades..."
If Jorge Bush were just some regular schmo whose death would be just another notch in the gun barrel of some crazed terrorist, it would still be very bad. But he is our fricken' President, and to even ignore the message that his act of foolishness will send, sans his very possible death at the hands of the snakes he attempts to charm, is an inexcusable disservice to America and the people who have placed the office in his hands. The social, economic and security implications of his potential murder, at the hands of these barbarians he seeks to cast in a civilized light, are completely off the scale! This is very simply unconscionable.
What the hell has happened to reason, reality and recognition? God, once again... save us.
