Pictures say it all

The text of this New York Times article seems almost ludicrous, especially the quotations from Olmert, when you look at the pictures illustrating it. This is David against Goliath for sure. It's just taking a little while longer than the Biblical battle.

From reading the Ha'aretz report, it seems like many politicians and the media were hoping that Disengagement had broken the pro-Eretz Yisrael population, especially the kids. They were certain that a strong "showing" by the (sic) security forces would frighten the young demonstrators away. Instead it had the opposite effect.

The younger generation hates and despises the police and soldiers. They don't fear them. They don't respect them either. The only ones respected are the ones who have refused orders. They are considered the true heroes, risking their service records and careers for Eretz Yisrael.

Yesterday, on the way to Ofra, we passed a number of road blocks. I saw young kids peacefully trying to explain to the soldiers and police about the significance of Amona and the importance of settling the Land. These little kids, who rarely reached the shoulders of the military are so much larger and greater in spirit.

And via this Arutz 7 link you can see many more pictures of what really happened in Amona.

This situation is just unbeliveable, and heart breaking. If there were a magic wand I could wave...

The NY Times has become a joke. The Grey Lady is a lady no more, it's a bastion of liberal hatred.

I never thought I'd live to see the day when the leaders of a Jewish nation would turn on their own. The protesters at Amona, Zionists in every sense of the word, were treated like terrorists and Olmert is using it for political gain. This is like some sort of weird alternate universe.
