Forget Proportionality in Gaza

Proportionality is a sneeze in the wind that comes back to you

And germs up your face.

There is no such thing.

And there shouldn’t be because it is disrespectful to injuries

And death.


To diminish amputations is to leave an absent arm

Swinging in the breeze.

We are not talking about slaps in the faces,

Red cheeks,

Embarrassed Sundays.


We are talking about Palestinians shooting rockets

And parents putting bombs in their children’s

Knapsacks along with candies.


I know a Jew who sides with the Palestinians and travels

To Egypt to hobnob with the Moslem Brotherhood.

I am a Jew.

I do not side with my enemies.

You want to kill me; I want to kill you

Or the balance in the universe is out of kilter.


The Palestinian loving Jew has no idea that he is a joke to al-Qaeda,


The Moslem Brotherhood

Or the average Palestinian

Throwing rocks like David at the Goliath

Of his own hatred.


This Jew thinks that he is respected for betraying his own people.

It’s cheeky to turn the other cheek.

Christ underestimated his enemies.

Muslims decapitate you for apostasy in religion.

In politics it is even worse.

The Iranians want to wipe the Jews off the face of the map.

And we are worried about proportionality?


Liberal Jews treat death like it is a joke.

They play the hands they are dealt

Even-Steven so that heads are equally balanced in the sand.

Give me the disproportion of my side winning.

The losers are the dead.


What man would let his wife get blown up because he

Was stupid enough to believe in the proportionality of his ideals?


Does his daughter matter or is she just another card that he folds?

In the casino of death the liberal Jew is a loser.
