Give these people a state, and quick (5th in a series)

In a story about the kidnapping of a Dutchman and an Australian, in Gaza, there's this:

Gaza has been wracked by lawlessness and a total security breakdown in recent months marked by a spate of kidnappings, bombings, as well as shootings targeting PA officials, foreigners, and members of the judiciary.

Hmm. Odd. The infidels are gone, what could possibly be stopping Palestinians from having a perfect society now that they've forced out the evil Jews?

Read the whole article for some good insight into what a disaster area Gaza has become since the 'occupation' withdrew.

Previous in this series.

And yet, when Iraquis blow things up, it's a sign that Democracy is on the march?

Sounds like IRAQ.....

In all fairness the Israilis completely dismantled the infrastructure (police, military..etc) in Gaza, even if you believe the occupation was justified or not. It takes a long time to build up security, something we take for granted in the States perhaps.

Everyone knew this would happen - it's been essentially lawless, or thug-ruled in all of the occuppied territories for at least the last ten years, but beforehand they could channel most of the violent energy into blowing themselves up.

It's interesting; what's happening in Gaza is essentially what the anti-war crowd claim is happening in Iraq - civil war, social breakdown. But I'd much rather be living in Baghdad than in Gaza right now. Even if I weren't, you know, an infidel.

The last four Palestinians alive will sign a peace treaty with Israel that will result in a lasting peace.

I would rather be in Baghdad than Detroit or Washington DC. It is statistically safer for Americans.

Well it's all those years of abuse at the hands of the JOOOOOOOOZ, naturally.
