Part of me wants to say that it's some photoshop doctored picture, but on the other hand there are probably people that do that sort of thing.

Either way it just makes me SICK.

Yeah, the pictured looked really weird when I saw it, it very well could be fake or real. Damn if it isn't freaky though.

GRRRR... EVIL WORLD...MAKES...ME...ANGRY...

HULK SMASH EVIL WORLD!

Sorry 'bout that... It's just...yikes. What kind of fucked up world do we live in when people would:
i) Suggest infant suicide bombers exist
ii) Make a photo like that
iii) Make a baby dress like that
iv) Make a baby into a suicide bomber
v) Be suicide bombers

Crazy...

From what I've heard (CNN), the picture was not doctored, but it may have been a gag. Either way, it's just sick. I don't think I need to say what needs to happen to these people.

Does this remind anyone else of when that Chinese paper recently ran an Onion article as fact?

That Onion episode was f'n hilarious. Let's hear it for Madison humor! Unfortunately, this picture schmozz ain't funny.

According to info from ABC News, a British Sky News interview with a man claiming to be the infant's uncle claims the picture is authentic.

I remember a few months ago, Maxim Magazine showed a picture of a young kid, probably around age 7 or so, at a Hamas rally. Yes, the kid was dressed in fake explosives.

Oy vey.

That's pretty common, actually. Suicide bombers are quite revered in that culture. (In my psychology class, we watched a video of children's programming featuring children dressed in fake explosives, screaming "Jihad!" and swearing to spill the blood of Israel. Really a charming show.)

And then some douchebag starts blathering on about how, in that culture, at least they raise their children to be "productive members of society" rather than "whores like Britney Spears".

He also said, on September 12th, how he really can't get too upset when a bunch of bankers die.

I wouldn't piss on that prick if he was on fire.

Yes, it was so much better when Stalin was killing millions of Russian citizens, just pumping them full of lead and leaving them on the side of the road. Or perhaps before that, during the Holocaust, the world was in a much better state then. And so on, and so forth.

There have always been f'd up people with the power to influence others(*looks at the Hamas in this case*), and there will probably always be f'd up people with the power to influence others. It might be a damn shame, but it's quite simply just the way things are.

Well it's productive in that it gets a little of the moron gene out of the gene pool. Keep that up pretty soon it'll be a rare occurance.

Apparently Arafat is going to step down (according to Drudge). What will this do to the whole Isreal situation. You could get a better leader in, or you could get a crazy warlord in.

He's the only thing keeping what stability they have there. Wait for someone from Hamas to take control, and you'll see a true war.

No, you'll just see Israel eventually slaughter more Palestinians. Palestine will never be able to fight a successful war with Israel without some kind of weapon of mass destruction be it nuclear/chemical/biological in nature. Palestine will have to contiune to resort to terrorist actions until they are all killed/absorbed by Israel or are granted their own country. Then they could actually build their own military and conduct their killing or Israelies more civilly.

What? They don't NEED to win a war. If Palestine want a state that badly, maybe they should try to STOP the terrorists who go out and blow up Israeli civilians and those who fund and support those terrorists, rather than say nothing about it.

Speaking of homicide bombing, there haven't been any homicide bombings yet, since Israel decided to go into the settlements where those terrorist cells are. Interesting.

Now while I don't support terrorist actions, or killing in general, what would Palestinians gain by deciding to stop terrorist actions against Israel? Would Israel just magically decide to give up some of the territory they control to allow Palestine it's own nation? Hardly. If there was never another terrorist bomb, never a rock thrown at Israeli border guards for the next fifty years, there would probably still not be a Palestinian state. Israel is not interested in mending fences with Palestine, or trying to get along with them at all. They proved that by electing Ariel Sharon. To get their own state, and out from under Israel's control, Palestine needs some leverage. There's no money in Palestine, and Israel is buddies with the US, so there's no first world countries arguing on their behalf. So the method they use? Violence and death. I don't agree with that choice, but I do agree that it produces leverage when they had none to begin with. Whether it's enough leverage, or even in the right direction, I guess we'll just find out.

Yeah, it looks like the only real solution is to get someone in a position of power to not only come out in support of a Palestinian state, but also to tell Israel that if they don't back off, they're getting their asses whupped too. IIRC, the terrorist's complaint was our unquestioned support of Israel. When I went to DC this past January, and visited the Saudi Arabian embassy, a spokesman there claimed that Israel's violated more UN conventions than anyone else. Whether or not that's true, it might actually be. Now their methods are unconscionable, but maybe they have a point. Didn't we say that the attacks could lead us into a new era of awareness? (Sure, we said that wouldn't last...)

Anyway, the point is Bush needs to not only say Palestinians deserve a state, but that Israel needs to lay off. And, of course, since that won't be enough, whup both sides's asses equally if/when they start going at it. It's hard to keep the peace where there is none, after all.
