When Parody Meets my Column...

...I'm flattered.
Last Sunday, I wrote in the Star about the futility of negotiating with Hezbollah:

Were we to engage in such fecklessness, what would we discuss with Hezbollah? Its stated desire is the eradication of the state of Israel, with a promise that Jewish and Western targets be attacked the world over.
So would we, say, negotiate a reasonable number of attacks per year?
Or, would we talk about allowing Hezbollah to eradicate a certain percentage of Israelis? They are also fans of Islamic law. Would we negotiate an acceptable number of rights women could give up?

Then I discovered the Hezboliberal site, now located here, and saw the following "parody" headline, about a Hezboliberal plan to broker a settlement in the Middle East:
Breakthrough Compromise: Half-Destroy Israeli State
The best humour always comes from just slightly tweaking the truth.
