While pro-War conservatives such as I are outraged by the disgraceful conduct of American soldiers at Abu Gharaib prison, it is instructive to point out a story that probably won't get much press in Al-Jazeera or Al-Arabiya:
In a devastating terror attack at 12:45 PM today, Gazan Arabs murdered a Jewish mother in her 8th month of pregnancy and her four children - spraying their car with bullets and then shooting each child repeatedly at point-blank range.
Understand that this was an attack conducted against a Jewish woman in her fifth month of pregnancy in addition to the deliberate wounding, followed by the coup de grace, of each of her four children.
The terrorists, from the Hamas group, will be glorified as shahid for this act of swinish murder. This attack is instructive in that too many on the left have no idea what our enemies have in store for us should they win. However, the Usual Suspects will ignore this attack as they train their anger on American barbarity in a prison in Iraq.
I know this much about the Left. They were wrong about Soviet communism, wrong about Chinese communism, wrong about what was going on in the corrupt kleptocracies of the Third World, and they are most definitely wrong about this war. History will be very harsh with them, I predict. But not before their asses are saved by a conservative government.
