The Samaritan Report

A Newsletter for Those Who Actually Give a Damn; As Chomsky Said: “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum.” Keep THAT In Mind.

Conveyed The Due Credit

“The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the sexiest conflict in the world, and everybody wants to be involved.” So said Israel FM Tzipi Livni. Why? Because "before the IDF attacks Qassam workshops or warehouses it distributes flyers asking the residents to evacuate the area. But Hamas exploits the flyers and places small children on the rooftops in order to foil the attacks. And thus because of this trick the IDF is forced to halt many such bombings at the last moment...We are working with our hands tied because of all these laws and because we are part of the free world and because this is part of our values."

Credit should still be given where it's due, especially when Israel does something rare like avoid civilian casualties. Palestinians still explode bombs in their hands and bury themselves alive during smuggling runs. And these are just the reported cases! Meanwhile, two out of every five Mauritanians are slaves. Some might call that a monstrous crime.

Now, what is big government? Rush explains that Texans and Californians have learned the hard way concerning traffic law in the former and gasoline in the latter. But Rush seems to think it also applies to water rates in the south, applying it to conservation rather than the more likely and most obvious culprit, the drought.
