I've thought of a new word. Murdyrdom. Or maybe Murtyrdom. We'll take a vote. But you can see the meaning, of course. It's a new rite to the greater glory of Gog. Elsewise Allah will be displeased, or despised, or something. In any case, it's a new religious obligation. The Sixth Pillar of Islamism. Inspiration for this most neo of neologisms is the current affray outworking itself in the Lower Levant. You know, the one where the Jews are attacking the downtrodden indigenous Islamic peoples? Oh. Wait. I mean where the Hebrews are committing genocide against the Palestinians? No, wait ... that sounds even worse. Where the Kikes are butchering the righteous innocent practitioners of the Rileijun of Piss? Uh ... I'm working from the MSM Manual of Style, published by the NY Times Corp. It's somehow skewing my meaning, and I'm sure I've mispelled something, although the spellchecker isn't catching it.

You know what I'm talking about though. After three years and six and a half thousand missiles launched into Israel from Hamas-controlled Gaza, the Jews -- by which we mean Israel, which has a significant population of Moslem citizens, who have full civil rights -- the Jews, I say, are finally taking draconian action to oppress this horseplay. Is my tone inconsistent? I hate it when that happens.

Charles Krauthammer speaks with his usual flawless moral clarity. Hamas "deliberately places its weapons in and near the homes of its own people." Well, yes, homes -- but hospitals and mosques and pre-schools as well. "This has two purposes. First, counting on the moral scrupulousness of Israel, Hamas figures civilian proximity might help protect at least part of its arsenal. Second, knowing that Israelis have new precision weapons that may allow them to attack nonetheless, Hamas hopes that inevitable collateral damage -- or, if it is really fortunate, an errant Israeli bomb -- will kill large numbers of its own people for which, of course, the world will blame Israel." Of course it will. The world will die with a millstone around its neck. "For Hamas the only thing more prized than dead Jews are dead Palestinians. The religion of Jew-murder and self-martyrdom is ubiquitous." Behold the birth of a new word. Murtyrdom. Or maybe murdyrdom.

Well. What are we to expect? Blame? There's plenty to go around. I mean, who are the Jews to resist their own annihilation? They're bucking the historical trend, and that hardly ever works. As for Hamas, well, is that not just one letter away from Haman, as in, the Agagite? Turn your attention for a brief moment to the book of Esther, chapter three, verse six. Not the first, nor the last -- rather a central, and typical, anti-Semite, eh? Like Antichrist, Antisemite returns again and again. Like a mindless mass of pilgrims wheeling around a crypt containing an asteroid. But there's enough blame to go around. As long is the Jews end up with it all.

To keep the wheel a-turning, Hamas produces a number of child-oriented television shows for their precious children. In one such, "an adorable live-action Palestinian Mickey Mouse is beaten to death by an Israeli (then replaced by his more militant cousin, Nahoul the Bee, who vows to continue on Mickey's path to martyrdom)." What a hoot. As Krauthammer observes, and I can only parrot, one side seeks peace, the other craves death. It's a sort of equation, I guess, but using some non-standard set of axioms, where lines are not parallel, as responses are not proportional, and where a point has area -- the entire landmass contained within the boundaries of what some are pleased to call Israel. An empty set -- empty of Jews, that is. An elementary sort of Palestinian word problem, is what all this is, to educate our children with.

And when Israel gave the Palestinians the land they claimed they wanted -- doing "something never done by the Turkish, British, Egyptian and Jordanian rulers of Palestine" -- did "the Palestinians begin building the state that is supposedly their great national aim? No. No roads, no industry, no courts, no civil society at all. The flourishing greenhouses that Israel left behind for the Palestinians were destroyed and abandoned. Instead, Gaza's Iranian-sponsored rulers have devoted all their resources to turning it into a terror base -- importing weapons, training terrorists, building tunnels with which to kidnap Israelis on the other side. And of course firing rockets unceasingly.

"The grievance? It cannot be occupation, military control or settlers. They were all removed in September 2005. There's only one grievance and Hamas is open about it. Israel's very existence."

What can I say. It is a culture of child molesters.

"...wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom..."

"It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones."

Hell is not soon enough.
