Wag the dog

Wag the dog

It was a movie about how a (fictional and) cynical US presidential administration decided to pursue a (fake) war just to distract the public from troubles at home.

Now it appears that anti-Israeli terrorists are doing it for real. According to an Associated Press article about a suicide bombing that killed three Israelis Monday in the resort town of Eilat, "[a] An Islamic Jihad Web site said the attack was meant to help bring an end to weeks of Palestinian infighting that has 60 people in the Gaza Strip since December."

Wow. Now they're not even claiming to be fighting Israel when they murder innocent Israelis. They're killing them to distract themselves from killing each other. .. . . . And Jimmy Carter thinks that all the troubles are Israel's fault. Thanks, Jimmy. You're a pal.
