Random thought for the Day = Scorched Earth in Gaza

I, for one, would like to suggest that as Israel pulls out of Gaza, that the last people in line are the ones driving the bulldozers and backhoes.

I hope they flatten every last house, store, apartment complex and park. Dig up every inch of road, pipe, sewer, and power line. Backfill the pools and irrigation canals. Take every last scrap that isn't bolted down or buried back to Israeli turf. Return the entire area to its original, "pristine" condition.

If the Palestinians want a homeland, then let them build it from the ground up like the Israelis, by the sweat of their collective brows and callused hands. Don't let them move into the fruit of Israel's labor like squatters and hobos in train cars.
