Upside Down and Dangerous

It seems like I'm running a dictionary service.

The lead headline in the N.Y. Times email had me going.

Militants' Raid on Israel Raises Gaza Tension

Nu? What's a "militant?" According to word web dictionary:
Noun: militant militunt
A militant
reformer- activist
Adjective: militant militunt
Disposed to warfare or hard-line policies"militant nations"- hawkish, warlike
Showing a fighting disposition"militant in fighting for better wages for workers"- competitive
Engaged in war"militant nations"- belligerent, fighting, war-ridden, warring

It sounds like a bunch of flaky, benign idealists, like the militant activists for the environment, protecting endangered species and all that.

It sure doesn't jive with the first paragraph of the article:
JERUSALEM, June 25 In an ominous development, Israel threatened strong military action on Sunday after eight Palestinian militants in Gaza, including members of the governing faction Hamas, emerged from a secret tunnel dug 300 yards into Israel, killed two soldiers, wounded three and kidnapped another.

What does it sound like to you?

And how are the Israeli Security Forces gearing up to defend the country?

Distancing Orders Issued to Outpost Activists 15:24 Jun 26, '06 / 30 Sivan 5766
by Hillel Fendel

The government has taken its first steps to destroy four Jewish outposts in Judea and Samaria, distributing restraining orders against some 15 activists on Friday and Sunday.

Civil Rights don't exist for Jews in Israel; that's for sure. All those people being banished from their homes in the name of "national security," should take it as a compliment. It means that:


The government is trying to stifle free speech. None of these people have done any crime. The government is "restraining" them, preventing from living their lives in their homes.

Arab terrorists wander around freely, building whatever and wherever they want. Only Jews, Israelis are restricted.

Wherever you are, protest! Don't be embarrassed that it's against Israel! This is not the Israel you feel loyal to. We must restore the country to one of growth and development and freedom for Jews.

If a Jew can't live in the home of his forefathers, where the Bible took place, where can we live safely?
