Headline News! Terrorist Loon Spurns Hollywood's Appeal for Peace!

I haven't seen Munich -- I may yet. But I have no illusions about it, or its message. Steven Spielberg's comments about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are naive, at best. For example, he is quoted as saying, "The biggest enemy in the region [the Middle East] is intransigence." Except that Israel has been anything but instransigent. They have made concession after concession over the decades. (As Abba Eban said, "The Palestinians never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.") So while I was not shocked at the reaction of Mohammed Daoud, the mastermind of the Munich massacre, to Spielberg's movie, Spielberg himself may well be.

The Palestinian mastermind of the Munich Olympics attack in which 11 Israeli athletes died said on Tuesday he had no regrets and that Steven Spielberg's new film about the incident would not deliver reconciliation...
Mohammed Daoud planned the Munich attack on behalf of PLO splinter group Black September, but did not take part and does not feature in the film.
He voiced outrage at not being consulted for the thriller and accused Spielberg of pandering to the Jewish state. "If he really wanted to make it a prayer for peace he should have listened to both sides of the story and reflected reality, rather than serving the Zionist side alone," Daoud told Reuters by telephone from the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Yeah, he sounds really reasonable, and ready for some give and take. Elsewhere in the story, Daoud admits that Israel allowed him to visit the West Bank following the Oslo Accords. Awfully instransigent of them, non?

Read the story.

Islamofacists think black and say white, that's how honest they are. You can have more confidence in a monkey (the French say bougnoule).

After elections in Irak, they keep murdering innocent people. I suspect that their thinking are poisoned from the childhood with koranic teachings.

Not that they are unintelligent. Rather they use their intelligence to do evil. They seem to rejoice in evil projects. They could have trained athletes of their own to compete in Olympic Games. No instead they try to kill Israeli athletes. And what is worst is they do not repent. That should speak loud and clear for what we can expect from the rattle snakes we have welcomed in our country.

They could have used the space left by Israeli settlers to build housing. No they use it to fire rockets to kill innocent persons.

Allah is great yeah! They really mean the devil.
