Our Gutless Wonders

A news story posted on the World Net Daily web site is reporting that the Al Aqsa Brigades claim they have fired a missile into Israel carrying a chemical warhead. This is according to Abu Qusai, spokesman for the same group. Al Aqsa Brigades is the armed wing of Fatah, headed by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Israel has said that they have no indication that such an attack has occurred. But even if it hasn’t happened yet, if terrorists ever get possession of WMD’s, of course they’ll use it.

This Al Aqsa Brigades claim comes as gutless and appeasing political leaders the world over are demanding “Israeli restraint”. The E.U. has urged both Israel and the Palestinians to "step back” and allow “diplomacy” to resolve the crisis.

The Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy of France said the crisis could only be solved through a “political dialogue”.

Japan’s Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, is making noise to the effect that his scheduled trip to the Middle East next month needs to be re-evaluated because of the current events.

The gutlessness extends to the Bush administration also as U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has also urged Israeli restraint.

In fact, Israel herself seems all too eager to appease even as Israeli military forces are massing at the border of Gaza. The Israeli retreat from the West Bank continues.

Appeasing terrorists just never seems to end with the gutless politicians that we seem to consistently elect and re-elect.

“Israeli restraint”
"step back”
“political dialogue”

Winston Churchill said it best:

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile - hoping it will eat him last.
