Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win

Submitted by Tina (United States), Nov 11, 2006 at 21:53

Did you see the article in sfgate about a Palestinian American gay man who decided to have an impromptu gay pride parade in East Jerusalem ( a Palestinian neighborhood) the same day as the gay pride parade in Jerusalem (the Jewish part)? He got an education.

How is it that with TV, radio, public education, high school graduate, college graduate, graduate student, 25 years old, and didn't know what was necessary to protect their safety? These people are American, and have the vote.

Regarding the gay pride parade in Jerusalem ( the Jewish part), I think it is chutzpahdik to use up the time of 3,000 officers when there are 80 specific intelligence warnings of planned terror attacks against Israeli targets and the alert level is raised to Daled or "D," the highest.

So what do you have in this story? Ignorance, naivete, selfishness, self-centerdness, narcissism, lack of balancing of interests, lack of perspective, lack of judgment, stupidity, insensitivity, lack of gratitude, useful idiots, distraction that can cause other people to lose their lives....
