Bugger? Didnt his mother teach him not to strap bombs to himself when he was younger?
2001-08-13 09:30:28 AM  
Was he labeled "Suspicious Package" and have the VW logo somewhere on him?

Bet he's gonna be surprised when he gets to the gates of heaven and Allah throws him out for being a prideful and stupid asshole.

I think it's time to assimilate everyone for the good of the collective.

And they say that having "American Pride" is a bad thing... I would sure as hell rather have American Pride than Israeli or Palestinean Shame.

Farking lunatics... Lets nuke them, wait a few years, and then turn it all into a big Club Med

Reminds me of the Darwin Awards story:
"Living On Zionist Time"
5 September 1999, Jerusalem

In most parts of the world, the switch away from Daylight Savings Time proceeds smoothly. But the time change raised havoc with Palestinian terrorists this year.

Israel insisted on making a premature switch from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time to accommodate a week of pre-sunrise prayers. Palestinians unequivocally refused to "live on Zionist Time." Two weeks of scheduling havoc ensued. Nobody knew the "correct" time.

At precisely 5:30 Israel time on Sunday, two coordinated car bombs exploded in different cities, killing three terrorists who were transporting the bombs. It was initially believed that the devices had been detonated prematurely by klutzy amateurs. A closer look revealed the truth behind the untimely explosions.

The bombs had been prepared in a Palestine-controlled area, and set on Daylight Savings time. The confused drivers had already switched to standard time. When they picked up the bombs, they neglected to enquire whose watch was used to set the timing mechanism. As a result, the cars were still en-route when the explosives detonated, delivering to the terrorists their well-deserved demise.

Farkin' Idiots...

You'd think that he'd have had a lot more people telling him how to pull it off, since the Palestinians are basically a terrorist society...
2001-08-13 12:40:57 PM  
Hmm... looks like someone set them up the bomb! :)

Does he still go straight to heaven if he didn't kill anyone else?
2001-08-13 01:01:20 PM  
Yeah sure he did. It's not Israeli propaganda. The Arabs really are dumb. Yeah. Pass the motzah balls.
2001-08-13 01:40:34 PM  
Over half the total foreign aid from america goes to the Jews. Without us,
allah would kick their farking butts. Then there would be no pro american post in arab-land. Where will it end? Regional, limited nuclear war, I suspect.
2001-08-13 01:42:17 PM  
Hey Jester, feeling pride over what america did to the Iraqi children?
2001-08-13 01:49:02 PM  

For what, bombing Iraqi military installations? You know that was all a PR thing Saddam did, by placing military installations on the same sites as civilian buildings. You know, your typical "Hospital For Cute Babies/Nerve Gas Production Facility".

I suspect Tinyperfect is bit proud of his terrorist kin. I love how Arab countries like Egypt blame suicide bombings on Israel's policy of occupation and not the militants who decide to blow themselves up for a harem of virigns in heaven.

The Palestinians don't get it. Terrorism doesn't work. Neither does keeping children close to gun-toting protesters so that when Israelis shoot back at the protesters "they were killing innocent children."

The world might have a little more respect for your need for a recognizes statehood, if you would act democratically. (i.e. Realize that a compromise is the only way out of this situation and that PR stunts are not going to blind the world much longer). Israel is the only democratic country in the Middle East.

Jordan, Egypt and Saudia Arabia, other civilized countries have more to gain through political and economical associations with Israel then militant refugees without a homeland who insist on hurting their situation by promising Days of Rage every other Tuesday.

Why do you think the Arab League barely even discussed the Palestinian situation at it's last convention?

Maybe it's time to rethink strategy and stop throwing parades when babies and blown up in pizzerias.
2001-08-13 02:01:43 PM  

This article appeared in the New York Times too. So no, it's not Israeli propaganda.
2001-08-13 02:03:54 PM  
Wow Tinyperfect looks like I don't even have to defend myself on that one. Everyone else knows how stupid that point of view is too.

"And I'm proud to be an American, where at least we don't kill babies..."

Oh, wait, maybe that wasn't how that went.
2001-08-13 02:15:34 PM  
Sorry... that should have been:

"And I'm proud to be and American, where we don't kill our babies..."

My coworker just pointed out the flaw in my logic... Obviously we'll kill other peoples' babies.
2001-08-13 02:28:18 PM  
Sorry, Jax, if you read it in the NEW YORK Times, then of COURSE, it's true.
2001-08-13 02:31:06 PM  
The NYtimes is notoriously anti-Israel via articles by Deborah Sontag and her husband. They certainly wouldn't spread Israeli propaganda.
2001-08-13 02:31:31 PM  
ahh, but we do kill our own babies.
Roe v. Wade: Abortion
2001-08-13 03:10:26 PM  

Depends on your definition of "baby".
We kill embryos, and occasionally fetuses.

Whose babies were killed at Waco by the FBI & ATF?
2001-08-13 04:47:56 PM  
whats that called when they think they go stright to heaven cause they did the "right"thing?

Worst. Bombing. Ever. I especially love how Islamic Jihad's spokesmoron still treats it like what they consider a 'victory'. You just can't beat terrorist PR spin, eh?

Rei: Surely you're not trying to justify the US's bombing of Iraq's Baby Milk Factory! <G>

I love how our country keeps helping Israel. It sickens me to no end that we defend this, supposed ally, even though they knowingly attacked a U.S. intelligence ship that was in international water. And I like how the administration of the time backed Israel instead of backing our own guys.

I say to hell with Israel. If they are truly the chosen people then they sure as hell do not need any of our damn help or money.

Do not forget the USS Liberty

As for the article, it goes to show that terrorist leaders normally do not send their best and brightest to do suicide bombing, it is usually the worst and dumbest that gets recruited for this sort of job.
2001-08-13 11:21:29 PM  
ah yes...terrorists...i sometimes dread being middle eastern (assyrian...and yes, we don't have a country) because everyone is like "oh, so like, are u gonna blow us up or something" then i tell them i'm atheist and they say "isn't that against your religion" (i was catholic before) anyways, my stance is this: lets build a giant dome over isreal and pakistan, take out all the children and woman, and let the bastards just beat the living shiat outta each other, whoever wins gets the land and stuff.. and think of the mad profits of Pay Per View! shiat, we can say screw the arab countries and use the money for some new energy

I think those babies were in the care of David Koresh.
How would you rate him?
