Suicide by cop

Reader comment on item: How to Turn Gaza Over to Egypt

Submitted by Duane Gainsburg (United States), Feb 13, 2008 at 08:57

Mr Pipes,

Perhaps the illogical hateful writhings by Hamas are in fact unconsciously deliberate. The phenomenon, "Suicide by Cop"(Googlable), is well known albeit not common and reflects an individual's deathwish when voluntary methods for whatever reason are not acceptable.

Maybe Hamastan has bred something like this into the visible and vocal among its inhabitants. There have been efforts to understand and prevent the act in individuals, but one wonders if Gaza's leaders will nevertheless succeed in this collective drama despite the best efforts of the goodhearted souls in Europe, and in Israel. Enter the Israeli army as cop, with guaranteed post hoc rabid opprobrium by these very same goodhearted souls. Thank you ever again for your continuing and courageous illumination of dark corners, wherein rats live.

Duane Gainsburg
