Long Live the Youth of Israel!

No, I do not have a problem with the title of this article by David Wilder, a spokesman for the Jewish community of Hevron. It is just that the article itself is so full of crap that TBIFOC could use it for a year of refills.

Many journalists asked: How can you put up with such 'violent hooligans,' in their words. The answer is very simple. These youth are neither hoodlums or hooligans. Rather, they are some of the most ideologically motivated people in Israel today.

Aha, now it is clear. Ideologists in ski masks. Throwing stones is probably the best way to make your ideology clear. In other words - violent hooligans, no matter how many other terms are applicable.

The road to hell is paved by ideologies and religions, dear Mr. Wilder. Your starry eyed ideologists are a mix of both, which makes them even more dangerous to our nation.

These kids are true lovers of their land, of Eretz Yisrael.

As opposite to the rest of us, that puny majority that considers that the Jews have nothing to do in Hebron, no matter how sacred the site is to all of us. So the hooligans are true lovers and we are... what? The haters, apparently, who provide these battalions to protect you around the clock, although most of us do not want you there.

These youngsters are still crying the pain of expulsion from Gush Katif and northern Samaria. Their hearts are still bleeding the wounds of our land being abandoned to our enemies. They hurt the hurt of thousands of homeless Jews, who committed no crime but to live in Gush Katif.

Let's cut the crap, Mr. Wilder. It was an over-televised, over-dramatised show, and it is over, so forget it. And let's call a hooligan a hooligan.
