The blogger asks:
It would be interesting to know whether the guns and bullets used to kill this thirteen year-old girl were made in America. Of course, in the larger sense it doesn't matter, since no matter where the guns and bullets were made we paid for it.
Another interesting question is why this kind of thing makes the Arab world hate us. I guess it's just part of their primitive, benighted culture.
Well, I can answer that with some confidence. The last time I looked, Israel had its own weapons manufactory, and made some really nice stuff. They also make ammo, sometimes marked as IMI, sometimes with other brand names. It is really good stuff and I can't imagine them having to import rifle ammunition.
And why would the Arab street hate America for this? This was an Arab/Irraeli engagement. Americans weren't anywhere around.
Wanna hate America? We've got lots of ways for you to hate us. Just saddle up your Jihadi ass, get to Iraq or Afganistan, find an American (they're everywhere) and come out to do battle. We'll give your Momma another reason to wail and your Daddy will be proud of his martyr.
But basically, if you want to hate someone, hate the people who send children into free-fire zones. Those people are beneath contempt.
