KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT WATCH: Ted Turner, owner of the horrible Atlanta Braves organization,(which I might add my New York Yankees always beat the pants off), obviously doesn't "get it".
Here's an excerpt from what he had to say:
"The Palestinians are fighting with human suicide bombers, that's all they have. The Israelis ... they've got one of the most powerful military machines in the world. The Palestinians have nothing. So who are the terrorists? I would make a case that both sides are involved in terrorism."
This is a very
typical argument of those who side with Arafat and his henchman. Apparently being undermanned justifies action against the evil Jews, including "oppressive" teenagers and toddlers.
The response by Ariel Sharon's government was hysterical. It had nothing to say, except to refer to them as "stupid".
I challenge the ideologies of would be suicide bombers: If you are so eager to "die for the cause", why don't you do so on a battlefield against opposing soldiers, rather than on a bus against innocennt civilians? At least this way you might gain some real sympathy. And this way you might even get the prisoner of war treatment, granted by the Geneva Convention, you always bitch about not getting.
It's time for Turner to shut his mouth and focus on that sorry excuse for a baseball team.
