> POLITICAL CORRECTNESS when it comes to the
> Israeli-Arab conflict:
> Rule 1:
> In the Middle East, it is always the Arabs that attack
> first, and it's always Israel who defends itself. This
> is called "retaliation".
> Rule 2:
> The Arabs, whether Palestinians or Lebanese, are not
> allowed to kill Israelis. This is called "terrorism"
> Rule 3:
> Israel has the right to kill Arab civilians; this is
> called "self-defense", or these days "collateral
> Rule 4:
> When Israel kills too many civilians. The Western
> world calls for restraint. This is called the
> "reaction of the international community".
> Rule 5:
> Palestinians and Lebanese do not have the right to
> capture Israeli military, not even a limited number,
> not even 1 or 2.
> Rule 6:
> Israel has the right to capture as many Palestinians
> as they want (Palestinians: around 10000 to date, 300
> of which are children, Lebanese: 1000s to date, being
> held without trial). There is no limit; there is no
> need for proof of guilt or trial. All that is needed
> is the magic word: "terrorism"
> Rule 7:
> When you say "Hezbollah", always be sure to add
> "supported by Syria and Iran"
> Rule 8:
> When you say "Israel", never say "supported by the
> USA, the UK and other European countries", for people
> (God forbid) might believe this is not an equal
> Rule 9:
> When it comes to Israel, don't mention the words
> "occupied territories", "UN resolutions", "Geneva
> conventions". This
> Could distress the audience of Fox News.
> Rule 10:
> Israelis speak better English than Arabs. This is why
> we let them Speak out as much as possible, so that
> they can explain rules 1 through 9.This is called
> "neutral journalism".
> Rule 11: If you don't agree with these rules or if
> you favor the Arab side over the Israeli side, you
> must be a very dangerous anti-Semite. You may even
> have to make a public apology if you express your
> honest opinion.
