A single attack by Gazatians on Egypt, and the Egyptians, in retaliation, have closed the border with Gaza, and the world keeps quiet. When attacks on Israel had came from Gaza and Israel had closed the border, the world went wild. But then, when Israel was attacked, there were no Olympics games.
And a related issue. The ambassador of Syria in Tehran declared today that his country is in war with Israel which, together with the USA, are responsible for the grave situation in Syria. And this post Olympic games.
I just can't seem to make sense of it all.

This is not a Zionist agent
In 2010, before the Arab spring, a serious of shark attacks on swimmers in the water of the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh lead to the Egyptian media blaming Israel for training the sharks to destroy the Egyptian economy.
At the onset of the Libyan revolution, Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan tyrant – for years a supporter of anti-American and anti-Israeli campaign – was blamed by the Arab media for working for the Israeli Mossad.
When his father, Hafez al-Assad died, there was a moment of hope that the UK-educated, self spoken new Syrian leader will enter peace negotiations with Israel. Within months, it became clear that his views about Israel are even more extreme than his father's. This, however, did not stop the Arab media from blaming him to be a Zionist agent, when he launches his massacre rampage against his own people .
A group of Jihadist from Gaza attacked an Egyptian post, killed 16 Egyptian soldiers, stole their armored vehicle and used them to break through the Israel border. Once in Israel they where intercepted and destroyed. But who is there to blame? Israel, of course. The Egyptian government is now claiming that the Mossad was trying to destabilize the newly elected Egyptian government. Naturally, nobody even tries to explain why would Israel want to have an unstable Egypt as it south border.
For the last hundred year, nobody has killed, maimed, terrorized or tortured as many Arabs as the Arabs themselves. But until the Arab people start listening to reason and fact, and unless hey wake to realize that blaming Israel for their own misdoings will not solve their problem, their misery is here to stay – probably forever.
Repentance, was the noble intention of the good soul who sent me the set of picture from the Southern Californian blaze. The flames consumed everything along their way, and only the single cross (at the right corner of the first image) survived. Wasn't it a sign of a God? Wasn't it a true miracle?
Well, if indeed it was a miracle and not the result of the unpredictability of fires - as some infidels will surely claim - it must be the work of a devil: one who saves a relic for those who have been consumed by his doing, to come and pray to him again.
If this is your symbol of a miracle, I am proud to be an atheist.
