Naivete of Ideological "rebels" getting in over their heads

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Attack Their Supporters

Submitted by sara (United States), Apr 15, 2011 at 18:24

It is sad to see the reality of the stark differences between the Palestinian 'youths' who are chanted to, broadcast to, goaded, fed a steady diet of hate and victimhood; and the rudderless leftist ideologue 'activists' who come from bright clean university campuses, weaned on oppression, imperialism, western evils, Israeli atrocities, vying to 'support' the cause.

One can understand how the young Palestinians have no other option culturally, when it is considered a cause for celebration to murder innocent people in their beds, on their buses, or in their cars. This is coupled with the innate tribal mentality of the endemic arab population where there is no regard for rule of law, and killing is done indiscriminately and with vigor.

Perhaps if the academic la-la land did not create the fantasies and lure their students to over identify with the poor victimized (UN fattened) Palestinians, the pre-dispositioned lost souls who embrace others' perceived causes would not end up dead in some house in Gaza.
