It ain't just the SBS, mate
It is the SMH too.
I got the Review piece from a reader and the SMH shite on my own. What both organisations have in common on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is an inability to credit Palestinians with anything other than victimhood. They are, to my mind, no longer victims. Munich Olympics, Achille Lauro and too many squeals of humiliation etc etc blah blah have dulled whatever legitimate complaints they may have. They get press. SBS is a signed up, SMH, ABC, even The Australian, definitely Reuters and every soft American and English rag getting around on the stands too.
The Palestinians are A-grade losers, from dawn until dusk.
I have explained before why. I will do so again for the hard of thinking. Because they have no opposition to their bug-eyed stinker of a leader. And they behave as if they do not care whether they live or die. That suicide bombing business, and the imbecilic rock throwing. At tanks. Which do not break from rocks thrown at them. G'uh.
The Syrians, the Jordanians, the Lebanese, the Saudis etc etc. They also do not care whether you live or die. Why should they? You do not.
If you have not got an opposition you are not whole. You are broken.
Start by sacking that bug-eyed freak.
Remember after 11 September 2001, Seamus Milne wrote in the Guardian, I think, "They do not know how much they are hated"? And he was referring to the Yanks, natch.
Well, I will wager the Palestinians have no freakin' idea how much they are loathed. I mean loathed. From Germany to Italy to Oz.
Urgh. Just the photo on that SMH piece makes me angry.
