Gazing at Gaza

So far, my favorite bullshit excuse for killing Palestinians was Ariel Sharon's dog-in-the-manger moment at Al-Aqsa, which followed Yasser Arafat's jubilation aboard the fishing boat Jandelay (September 27, 2000) when an offshore natural gas well went online in Gaza territorial waters. Thus British Gas reaped the heady rewards of pouring venture capital into Palestine.

For some reason that bit of history reminds me of Barbary Macaques at Gibraltar. Or the opening of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
