It has been brought to my attention that not quite everybody in the whole world has seen this clip from Monty Python’s The Holy Grail.
See if you can work out why I’m posting it.
Though I have to say, the sheer villainy of the abandonment by Obama’s America and the cowardly British (no doubt fearful of their belligerent Muslim minority) has left me somewhat unable to joke. Hamas may have been left bloodied and bleeding but they seem to be triumphant in their real goal of destroying the world’s trust in Israel.
And when someone like David Horovitz in the Times of Israel concludes his oped with stuff like the following, perhaps it’s better just to sit on YouTube and watch old Monty Python sketches.
From Hamas’s point of view, it must be a source of immense delight to witness the strains, and practical fallout, in the relationship between Washington and Jerusalem. It wins an election in which the US insisted it be allowed to take part, even though it has never renounced terrorism. It murders its way to control of Gaza. It diverts Gaza’s resources to turn the Strip into one great big terrorist bunker. It hits Israel, over and over and over again. It intimidates international journalists to not report on and film its attack methods. And the international community condemns Israel, the UN sets up inquiries into Israeli war crimes, and Israel’s allies limit its arms supplies.
All it needs to do, Hamas can only conclude, is keep firing at Israel’s towns and villages, forcing Israel to respond, confident that this will bring still more criticism down on Israel as well as growing restrictions on Israel’s ability to defend itself. Wow, the Hamas leaders must be thinking, the free world is just so dumb.
