Israel Saves Abbas' Life
Judeopundit wonders why (woah, kidding). Excerpt:
A HAMAS plot to assassinate Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, has been thwarted after he was tipped off by Israeli intelligence.

Hamas’s military wing, the Izza Din Al-Qassem, had planned to kill Abbas at his office in Gaza, intelligence sources said.
Great article from the NYSun reprinted at BeyondBT. Money quote:
“Never have I seen such coddled, tutored, overprotected, overscheduled children,” a psychologist who practices on the Upper East Side told me. “Parents are investing so much energy into their children today that it begs the question: Is it possible to over invest in your children? And not just emotionally. Financially, as well. I think the answer is yes. I see parents who view the hurdles that their children face as a deviation from this idealized path of supreme happiness. When of course, childhood is really about learning how to cope with the hurdles.
More people commenting on the problems with others' thinking. A great quote from Robert Avrech's post on Moussaoui's sentencing:
Many people are going to die because ZM is alive in our prison system. Americans on vacation in Europe and the Middle East are going to be kidnapped, and the kidnappers will demand that ZM be released. The innocent Americans will then be beheaded when ZM is not set free.

I am afraid that America simply does not understand that we are at war with a genocidal theology. When I hear the phrase, "We must bring these people to justice," I feel ill.

We must make total war on these human monsters.

Until Americans understand this simple fact, we lose.
The Godol Hador is on a different subject, wondering why people believe in craziness. Interesting post.
