I’d prefer not to lend the JStreet people even one second more than the 900 they’ve got coming. Plus Anne’s already covered these tools’ faked public confusion when it comes to the Israeli-Hamas truce. But still: I understand why Walt, Mearsheimer, and Obama need to put on airs about how aggressive appeasement will cause the Arab world to accept the values of the US and the existence of Israel. I’ve always taken it for granted that they’ve concluded that the benefits of selling out Israel outweigh the costs – but that they can’t admit their agenda because there’s something kind of unseemly and largely untenable about it.
But could it be that morons behind JStreet actually believe their own propaganda? Could they really be so enamored with their self-styled purity that they just don’t get really basic things? Could they really be so pretentious and vapid that they’d make a big public show of sophistication by bragging that they’re too stupid to know that the Gaza truce will be lucky to last a week:
Three Kassam rockets hit the western Negev on Tuesday afternoon, in a second violation of a cease-fire that Hamas has been abiding by since it went into effect last Thursday. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack, saying that the attack was to avenge an IDF raid that killed one of its members in the West Bank early Tuesday. “We cannot keep our hands tied when this is happening to our brothers in the West Bank,” the group said in a statement. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the rocket attack “came as result of Israeli provocation this morning.” He added, however, that Hamas was “committed to the calm”
“JStreet: Sure We’re Obnoxious And Wrong – But At Least We’re Not Unsophisticated! Join Us!”
