Bipartisan agreement to slug it out

ABC News is reporting that “Israel and Hamas have both rejected an order by the United Nations Security Council to stop the assault on Gaza.”

How glorious!!

Israel is continuing to batter Gaza with bombs and shells, vowing its offensive on Hamas would go on despite an order by the UN Security Council to stop the assault that has killed hundreds of civilians.

Truly sterling form that, matched only by the chutzpah of Israel’s bete noir...

A Hamas official in Beirut, Raafat Morra, said his group was also rejecting the UN resolution, because “it is not in the best interest of the Palestinian people.”


And both these unlovely tribes expect the world to respect and embrace their causes — and who on Earth could resist...?

Of course, the UNSC has a bad history of unreasonable demands, such as ordering Saddam’s Iraq out of Kuwait, and to disarm themselves of WMD...

The World Community should join with Israel and Hamas and tell the UNSC to just fuck off.
