Dumb and Dumber
Today, Haaretz announced that the Israeli Army intends to cut off the Gaza Strip's electricity supply if the Qassam rockets keep coming (I guess that sonic boom thing isn't really working).
Apparently, this was supposed to happen yesterday but " implementation was indefinitely postponed to give the main Palestinian hospital in Gaza time to purchase emergency generators." I see. It is a sort of humane collective punishment. Reeeal smart move, exposing the entire population to deafening shock waves in absolute darkness is sure to improve security.
This idiotic (but not surprising) suggestion on part of Mofaz has tied for this week's Dumb Move of the Day award (DMD) with the kidnapping of Gaza schoolteachers by armed gunmen. Its not clear why they kidnapped the Belgian and Australian teachers from the American International School, but reports indicate they are either disgruntled gunmen who want "in" on the fringe benefits of the Fateh party.
Cuting off electriciy from 1.5 million civlians, or kidnapping schoolteachers for political ends? Who wins this week's DMD? The verdict's in: Dumb, and dumber.
Now excuse me while I go get my flashlights and earplugs ready.
