Via Powerline, listen to Sheik Ahmad Bahr, acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council:

The Hamas spokesperson concluded with a prayer, saying: “Oh Allah, vanquish the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them all, down to the very last one. Oh Allah, show them a day of darkness. Oh Allah, who sent down His Book, the mover of the clouds, who defeated the enemies of the Prophet defeat the Jews and the Americans, and bring us victory over them.”

These are the people who cheered 9/11, yet the American taxpayer still hands them money hand over fist, directly and through the ever-honest UN.

Paraphrasing Sergeant Brooks, if the Palestinians lay down their arms there will be peace; if the Israelis lay down their arms there will be another holocaust. Few observers of the Palestinian conflict could deny that dichotomy. Yet the world insists on treating each side as moral equals.
