**NOTE: A couple years ago, I wrote the following post on the then-current “ceasefire” agreement between Hamas and Israel.
Given recent events, it seems appropriate to remind us all that what we’re seeing today is whatever comes AFTER déjà vu: we don’t simply feel that we’ve seen it before, but that we’re destined to see it again, too.
And I still maintain, as I did two years ago, that Klavan’s suggestion (below) is the best option around…
PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST: “You’re Doing it Wrong”
(Originally posted November 23, 2012)
Don’t get too comforted by the temporary armistice between Hamas and Israel, everyone.
First of all, as Ed over at Hotair.com said, “The description of the cease-fire as “tenuous” is a masterpiece of understatement“.
“This is a respite in Gaza, not a resolution“, Max Boot flatly stated.
They’re both right, of course. That’s because Israel wants peace, and Israel’s enemies want …the end of Israel.

It’s been Lucy’s plaintive question nearly every day recently. “Where IS God? Is He up in heaven?”
He’s everywhere, Lucy. He’s here with us now.
“But Mama, I don’t SEE anyone else here. “
God is invisible, Lucy. He is so great, He isn’t limited to just one place–if He had a body, He would be. God can be everywhere at once.
I draw a breath, ready to launch into a discussion of the fourth dimension, and the fact that God is eternal.
“…I still don’t see Him,” says Lucy.
This is an example of either:
- blatant, head-shaking stupidity, OR
- this man’s ego is such that he honestly believes whatever vacuous verbiage spills out of his pie-hole to be unqualified brilliance, despite any/all previous contradictory utterances on his part.
Of course, it COULD be both…
From the Washington Times:
“…In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news.
But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night.
