Just a short note on those wicked Qassam rockets. Is it just me or are these the most crap weapons ever invented? Two hundred years ago, in the Napoleonic era, weapons were very rudimentary. Anyone watching any Pirates movie or Sharpe on TV should know that the roundshot fired by those muzzle-loading cannon were nothing but balls of iron. They did not explode. If you see 19th century cannon-fire explode, you are watching Hollywood bullshit. But amazingly those clumsy 200 year-old, non-exploding, iron roundshot did more harm to people than these worthless Qassams.
You'd have to wonder why the Palestinians bother. But apparently they persist with this most pointless and least lethal of weaponry. Or so says the Israeli propaganda machine. (Hey Mark Regev when I hear you spouting your petulant racist shit with that Australian accent you make me sick. I hope you and I never meet mate.) But maybe the Palestinians concede the point. I have no idea. They're not on the telly. They should get better agents, ha ha ha. And better weapons. And where are all those weapons allegedly smuggled in from Egypt? Anyone seen any?
Given that the Israelis are hell-bent on ethnically-cleansing Palestinian 'beasts with two legs' and are looking for every excuse to kill them all, if the Palestinians didn't fire these idiot Qassams, the Israelis would have to do it for them. They certainly wouldn't do it any differently to the way it's being done now. When was the last Israeli casualty from a Qassam, by the way? Years ago? And how many in total? Could you count them with the fingers on one hand? Anyway, when the Israelis say the Qassams must stop what they really mean is, Thank God for those Qassams! If not for them they'd have no excuse for their relentless murder-fest and everyone might view the Israelis as the most genocidal, racist fuckers on the planet.
