I just watched a bit of CNN – Wolf Blitzer with the Mayors of New York and Jerusalem in Jerusalem, all three of them saying how wonderfully secure they feel, even safer than in American cities. Which makes you wonder why it has been necessary to kill 700 Palestinians.
CNN is really going on about this flights issue. It seems to be the main story in the US. It’s the first thing that I’ve found amusing. Israel is FURIOUS with America for cancelling all flights and wants the decision reversed because there’s no danger. The trouble is, Israel has spent the last two and a half weeks bleating about how deadly Hamas rockets are. That is what you call being hoist by your own petard – or being hoist by your own exaggeration of Hamas’s petards.
