I wonder if Jenny Tonge understands this, too.

Wait, I'm confused! There are skinheads in Gaza now? When that Spanish police officer's grave was robbed, we were assured it couldn't possibly be Islamists, because Islam is a Religion of Peace, and a Muslim would never do such a thing, because it's against the teachings of the Koran!

Oh yeah, that's real nice. Mindless "acts of revenge."

Bastards.

Ooh, that sure showed us! Tough guys. Real tough guys. I'm sooooo intimidated and shamed by this act.

Not.

Maybe this is just another example of my stunted sense of propriety, but I read this and I think, "Damn. Stupid kids. That'll cost."

Stupid, yes. But I rather doubt there was much intentionality behind it.

Of course, I used to trick people into sticking their fingers in my dad's ashes and then make them try to guess what it was. So obviously I don't take that whole death ritual thing too seriously.
