Amona - a sad day indeed

The level of vitriol and histrionics displayed by the right and the left on the subject is overwhelming. There is no need to describe it, just to quote. I have chosen a right wing blog, but the other side is not much better.

...Ehud Olmert and the Israeli government have succeeded in bringing about this terrible situation to its current state. They wanted violence, they want the world to see our pain, they wanted this Chilul Hashem for all to see.

I think, is this not a chillul Hashem to show Jew vs. Jew, the G-dless VS the G-d fearing?

They have LITERALLY made being a "settler" worse than a terrorist in the Israeli media?

I think Olmert is only doing this to help get more votes for Kadima.

When I saw the second picture, it instantly reminded me of the video clip of lynching in Ramalla in October of 2000.

News Flash: Olmert and Hamas sign treaty. Open season on all settlers.

Of the especially revolting:

They did it to Arabs in the meshulash and we kept quiet. They did it to Charedim in Shabbat demonstrations and we kept quiet. Now they're doing it to us and there's no one left to make a noise in our behalf.

Do the blind chazerim in the GOI truly believe that this crazed campaign of expulsion can lead to any good end for Israel?

And one of the pitifully few sane comments:

These "blame" comments are not helping, people. We're all sickened, whatever side of the spectrum.

And, as our Jewish custom, while we are squabbling, the enemy is at the gates and the useful idiots are showing him the way in:

Jimmy Carter: Give Hamas a chance

(CNN) -- Hamas deserves to be recognized by the international community, and despite the group's militant history, there is a chance the soon-to-be Palestinian leaders could turn away from violence, former President Jimmy Carter said Wednesday.

Maybe it's a good time for a wake-up call?
