Stupid Is What Stupid Does


In his article “A prophecy fulfilled” Cal Thomas sharply laments the one sided peace treaty and frets over the idea that thing can only get worse under the current arrangement. He refers to the recent storm of rockets from the now unoccupied territories. It is a very worthwhile read

( Look at the bottom - I took some excerpts out for the challenged)

While something must be done to alleviate the stress in the area, unilateral moves by Israel is not only unjust it is countrerproductive. What then must be done? I don’t know.

However, saying that something must be done and employing irresponsible strategies that have only proven itself dangerous is not the solution.

Israel should not proceed at all until the other side declares what they want for this peace road map to take affect. This is called Basic Treaty Making 101. I will do this in exchange for that - pro quid pro. Sadly, the other side has been declaring what they want – I say sadly not because this has been their mantra but because we, the world, have been ignoring it.

The price Jews have to pay for this experiment is obsene. I refer not to the "Israeli conquests" but rather to Jewish blood. The murders will only end when one of two things happen. Either the other side promises that it will cease all terrorist activities pursuant to a treaty or one side forfeits. To persist in this fashion is suicide.

Suicide is stupid.

Stupid is what stupid does.

Some Excerpts:

Having given so much and received nothing in return, it may now be too late to save Israel, but giving more without getting anything ensures Israel's extinction sooner . It took just 12 days from completion of Israel's withdrawal from Gaza before rockets started raining down on the Western Negev area from the now-unoccupied territory. The attacks late Friday might have occurred sooner had the terrorists not been preoccupied with torching synagogues and destroying flower-growing operations in Gaza that could have been used to produce income for Palestinian residents. Sadly, their hatred of all things Jewish prompted them to act against their self-interest....

The "Quartet" of the U.N., the United States [State Department], Russia and the European Union hassucceeded only in pressuring Israel to give and give and give. Whatever pressure it has applied to the Palestinian-Hamas-Fatah side has produced no cessation of violence, no disarmament and, in fact, no concessions at all....

The frustrating part is that no one pays attention to the pronouncements of the terrorists. Hamas announced it would flood Gaza with its soldiers once Israel withdrew. Islamo-fascist clerics call for the annihilation of Israel and tell jihadists it is their religious duty to kill Jews and Christians.....

Meanwhile, the Bush Administration and its State Department sink deeper into denial and pretend the terrorists don't mean what they say. The terrorists trumpet their plans and then carry them out. After they have caused death and destruction, they promise to do it again. Objectives can't be made clearer than that

    I don't think this is such a deep concept.

    If you and I have a deal and not only do you not specify what you want from the deal but you are constantly renegging then the deal is finished. If I persist - I am doing something STUPID. Stupid is.....
