Quote of the Day

Yahye Sinwar was with us the 1st 3-4 days. I asked if he wasn't ashamed to do such a thing to people who supported peace for years? He didn't answer. He fell silent.

  -- freed hostage and veteran peace activist Yocheved Lifshitz in an interview about her experience in captivity

I get the question, but the question is flawed. She thinks she is different, they are different, because they were peace activists. They think they are different because they tried to help Palestinians and Hamasniks. 

They were tools. 

Hamas doesnt care about peaceniks and about Israelis who want to help them, they just use them until they are no longer useful. On that note, Neturei Karta better watch out and learn the lesson Mrs Lifshitz learned the hard way.

Asking that question, of everything she could have asked (let the kids out, why take kids, mothers, elderly men and women, why attack and bring this on the Gazans, etc), shows how her entire world view crashed down upon her. I do wonder where she goes from here. Does she continue same as before, working for peace, helping the Palestinians, saying it was only Hamas, not the others, or does something change?

  1. I recall the interview she gave when she was released. An Israeli next to me muttered "If she was so happy there, she can go back and we can get someone else."
    For peaceniks like her, it's all selfish. She felt good about helping the poo' wittle Arabs. She felt good about defying that nassssty Bibi and his right wing extremists. She knew better than them about how peace would come about! And she was sure that when the reckoning came, they would stop at her door say "Oh, you're on our side" and leave her alone.
    She, she, she.
