How To Do (Unspeakable) Things Without Words

"Zionist focus only on what is said is disingenuous -- that is, "this is what X (Palestinian terrorist said) about Israel = these people are evil!" Using this rhetorical sleight of hand, Zionists have continued to claim that what Palestinians say reveals their "evil intentions" and conveniently do not engage with Zionist practices (dispossessing Palestinians of their land). Conversely, Zionist murder of Palestinians is explained away in the name of: "But X Zionist military commander said we were not targetting civilians!" while dropping two ton bombs on Palestinians houses." (Ptochos, Blogora, 9/10/2006).

From Haaretz:

"The government is planning to build 164 new homes in three settlements in the West Bank, despite an obligation under a U.S.-backed peace road map to halt such construction on land Palestinians seek for a state.The Israel Lands Administration, a government agency, issued a tender inviting bids on 88 plots in the Ariel settlement, 56 in Alfei Menashe and 20 in Karnei Shomron." (Government issues tenders for 164 new homes in the West Bank,, Sat., September 23, 2006).
