Okay call me silly but when I read Reuters reporter Nidal-al-Mughrabi’s story this morning stating that Hamas views Israel’s suspension of formal security ties as a “declaration of war” I mused.. Wait. Did we have a noon coffee date together and now we just screwed it up? Wait, Wait. Does this mean you won’t be picking up the lunch tab?
Well I guess not seeing as the EU and U.S. cut off direct aid over the weekend.
I just don’t get it but again, I’m far from a political analyst. When an entity won’t recognize a country, won’t renounce violence and its judicial branch proudly and publicly declares Jihad and “death for the sake of God” as its new government is being formed …that seems a tad “troublesome” in more than just a roguish, drank a few-too-many-beers-last-night kinda way. But shucks..What would I know?
I know this: No money + declaration of war = No Good.
This feels like that kid at school who is determined to punch no matter what you do or say. Heck, you could declare your undying love and offer up a year’s lunch money and the kid would still bloody your nose.
Israel is BY NO MEANS whatsoever the impish, cowering kid in the corner so let’s rub out that implication from the get-go so as to give this posting’s comment section a break. Hamas, however, isn’t that cowering kid either.
I’m concerned over what may go down during Passover holiday.
