Cliff May in the Corner:
It’s not getting much media attention but Palestinians have moved into former Israeli settlements in Gaza where they are setting fires and using sledge hammers to smash synagogues, and putting up the flag of the Militant Islamist terrorist group, Hamas.

That link is to a NY Times story carried by the International Herald Tribune. Obviously the liberal media are determined to bury this story.

Yes, I find the actions of these vandals regrettable. But after 38 years of military occupation, living in squalor in the world's largest refugee camp, and seeing up close the luxury that their oppressors enjoyed, and knowing that their oppression was required to maintain that luxury, let's not pretend we don't understand where this sort of rage comes from.
