Piece of Cake

Ever have the feeling you can't win for losing? Having brought intelligence, compassion and efficiency to one of the most heart-wrenching policies in its country's history, Israel is "rewarded" with this kind of al-Reuters garbage:

Israel shows moving settlements is not so hard JERUSALEM (Reuters) - In a few long days, Israeli forces have buried any idea that giving up settlements on land Palestinians want for a state would be impossibly traumatic.
The message: it's a piece of cake to uproot entire communities, destroy lives, and rip apart a country -- so this effort should be repeated, often, perhaps so as to include the entire country. Look, it's easy. Just relocate to, say, Uganda or somewhere else that al-Reuters just can't think of right now. I'm not saying the move was ultimately a bad idea. (As I've blogged a few times lately, it may be a strategically wise move, and I know that many Israelis have come to resent the enormous economic burdens the settlements impose on the whole country.) Nevertheless, a more crude piece of writing I don't ever remember seeing. Hat tip: Little Green Footballs UPDATE: If you want an antidote to that foul-minded al-Reuters article, read this.
