Israel controls the weather

It's official: Hamas says so.

Have you heard the one about how "Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said, “Israel is the one to blame for what is happening in the Gaza Strip. The Knesset’s restriction on bringing building materials prevents us from fixing infrastructure and that is why we have floods.” No? Then you need to read this.

It would appear that Israel now controls the weather. Snoopy, do the Elders know this? And if so, why did Israel get so much snow?

Actually, of course, if they didn't use so much building material in shoring up tunnels designed to attack Israel, they might have had enough to maintain or improve their infrastructure.

But then they couldn't blame the Israelis, could they?

By the editor: surely they can. And do. And more:

Hamas’s Disaster Response Committee chairman Yasser Shanti told journalists on Friday that Israel opened dams just east of the Gaza Strip, causing a flood in the area of Moghraqa near the town of Deir El-Balah.
There is one small problem with that claim: there are no dams east of the Gaza Strip. But for the anti-Zionists of the world, this is an insignificant detail, I guess.

Shoring up tunnels, yes, that makes sense. I wondered why they're always going on about building materials.

The silencing of the ducks is silly, just one more distraction (on purpose) from our idiot president and his burgeoning assault on health insurance. Who cares if the duck guy doesn't like homosexual sex, which is also practiced (according to various polls) by a surprising number of heterosexuals. Whoop-de-doo. But I must say the duck babble about "Christian values" is horse manure. What Christian values? Discrimination? Pogroms? He has the right to say it and I have the right to sneer. Now back to our regular programming. I hope.

Yep. The last big one consumed about 500 ton.

Sneering at religion is another matter. And it will be taken care of too soon, with Muslim pressure in UN and all that.

You should try. It is a very healthy and inspiring pastime. Speaking of sneering at religion, I am now reading Reverend Mercer's series by Joe Lansdale. Cool.

Israel does a very bad job controlling the weather. Didn't they go through a mutliyear drought? And if they wanted to destroy Gaza why didn't they flood them thoroughly?

No Israel cannot control the weather. Now God can. I suppose God is pissed at Gaza. They can blame him.

They can't, it's Allah, all powerful and just. Since he is just...
