Dan, thanks for reporting the "business professionals" remark from the White House. It speaks volumes about the attitude problem we face.

Indeed whenever I see statements that the same people who have ordered the deliberate murders of so many innocent people are going to be content to be peaceful elected pols--I wonder. How could they live with themselves? They have done all these terrible acts in the name of destroying Israel (if not world Jewry) and now they will be able switch careers? What will they tell their children?

I have just finished a book called "Ordinary Men" that describes the Germans and Poles who were conscripted especially to murder Jews, mostly in Poland, before the death camps were set up--they were called "Action Squads". They had to march groups of Jews into the forest and shoot them in the backs of their heads as the kneeled. Thousands of Jews were murdered this way--up close and personal. After the War most of these men went unpunished and just went back to civilian life. How many of them would have given up there anti-semitism? A clue is given in the book Schindler's List, which reports that Germans spat on Schindler when he was recognized on a bus in Munich after the War.

I still think Patton's approach is best--kill as many Hamas as you can, and then see if those who are left become businessmen out of fear.
