Lost: The traditional pleasures of everyday life by the sea

Feeling sorry for the people that want to kill jews and drive them into the sea.

Charles Johnson takes his patented note of the glorified terrorist propaganda that routinely passes for news and analysis in the mainstream media. Charles is somehow immune to the pathos Washington Post reporter Scott Wilson evokes for the citzens of Hamastan in "Sealed off by Israel, Gaza reduced to beggary."

It is the burden of Wilson's story to document the extreme depredations inflicted by Israel on the citizens of Hamastan. The depredations extend even to the deaf children of Gaza. For them, hearing aid batteries are no longer avaitable; they are now reduced to sign language. Wilson's photo above accompanies his story and carries the caption:

First-graders at a Gaza school for the deaf have had to rely on sign language since Israeli import restrictions caused the school to run seriously low on hearing-aid batteries. The isolated strip is also short of antibiotics, fuel and food.

In short, according to Wilson, Israel is reponsible for the inability of Hamas "to maintain an effective public health system, administer public schools or preserve the traditional pleasures of everyday life by the sea." Charles observes:
This sob story comes on the same day that tens of thousands of deprived beggars enjoyed one of their traditional, everyday pleasures—a massive Hamas rally, featuring genocidal hate speech and flag burnings.
Charles finds the journalistic counterpoint to Wilson's article in the bloodthirsty braggadocio on display in Khaled abu Toameh's Jerusalem Post article "Hamas: We will never recognize Israel." Charles concludes his report with a photograph brought to us by "the media swarming over one group of disenfranchised beggars, as they enjoy the traditional seaside burning of US and Israeli flags."
