Who Stirred the Hornet's Nest?

Reader comment on item: Why Does Hamas Want War?

Submitted by Ludvikus (United States), Jul 22, 2014 at 17:56

The New York Times, in its liberal, alleged humanitarian stance, has editorially elected to grace us with the feigned wisdom of a blogger not previously known to me.

In her view, the metaphor of Stirring the Hornet's Set, is appropriate to the circumstance of the latest explosion of violence between Israel and the Arabs in Gaza under the Hamas "unity" government.

From the standpoint of Critical Theory, which derrves from the Frankfurt School, there is one question here to be observed regarding this Narrative: Who's the Stirrer, and therefore Who's the Hornet's Nest?

I contend that the Hornet's Nest is Israel, and leave it to deduction which factions, or forces did the disturbance; we might also use her, the metaphor of Letting a Sleeping Dog Lie, with the obvious consequences.

In summary, how many "Catastrophes" must the Palestinian non-Israelis undergo before they conclude that the Israelis may not be defeated by "(Armed) Resistence" by pleading the deaths of Arab women and children to win the support of the reast of the bleeding-heart world?
