An open letter...

... to the senior Hamas official who went on record to taunt Israel with the following bit of psychological warfare:

"it's possible Gilad Schalit was injured [during the Gaza operation] and it is possible that he is fine. It doesn't interest us any longer. We did not allocate special security to him because he is equal in worth to a cat or less. His fate doesn't concern us and doesn't preoccupy us any longer."

Look, it's bad enough that you clearly revel in Hamas' ability to flout international law regarding the treatment of prisoners.  But flouting international law cuts both ways.  Please note that nobody is sitting in the Hague over the untimely deaths of Yahya AyyashImad Mughniyah or any of the other people sub-humans on this list.  

So if it turns out you really do know anything about the fate of Gilad Schallit, or worse, if you had anything to do with his capture or incarceration... my advice to you would be to have someone else answer your cell phone and start your car for the next few months years decades. 

I'm just saying...

Delicious, and cathartic. I would want you on my side in any argument. Especially against a total slimeball.

That said, here -- take this. Take a really long pull on that bottle. There you go.

Now, could you stop letting them get inside your brain? They are nothing. They do not have power over life and death. There is only One Who can make that final decision. And every evil thing they do will be dealt with. Every act of terror. Every sneer of contempt. Every. evil. thing.

No punishment I can invent could ever be fully what they deserve. But I know that The True Judge will take care of it. Perfectly.

If they make us mad enough, does that help us? Don't even feed them with your rage.

Listen to rutimizrachi. Very wise words.

Your reaction is exactly what they want. Double the fun for them. They do terrible things AND they know that it bothers you. They WILL be punished.

Didn't even bother reading the list once I realised that they were people already whacked. Meh. They're dead. They should be forgotten.

I am more concerned with finding out the names of the persons who called me a dog and nazi last week.

Have two-by-four, will travel.

I'm with you Mr. Bogner. I do catharsis quite well. But my anger is reserved for the government. Some of the best of Israel are gone now and Gilad Shalit is still prisoner. To say how much that saddens me is beyond my ability to put in words. They did it. They went in. Beyond the obvious fact that Hamas should have been utterly destroyed, Gilad Shalit's freedom should have been a condition of their leaving. It just seems to me that it has become too easy for them to waste young lives.

Trep, who published those execrable words? Who let him on the record? Those people should have their journalistic licenses revoked. As for me? I'll be studying up on how to stick c4 into cell phones I guess ;o/
