News and views on Israel, Zionism and the war on terrorism.

Now, that’s irony

The God of Irony must be operating in overdrive these days.

Russia is never absent among the nations rushing to condemn Israel with each steps she takes to defend herself from terrorists. Nor does Russia spare efforts to oppose the US regarding Iraq, or to support a second Palestinian state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza (“Yesha”).

Today’s [October 24, 2002] headline in the Ottawa Citizen reads, “Terrorists seize Moscow theatre, threaten to kill hundreds inside” (concerning the incident that began on October 23, 2002, see also AP report).

France is Russia’s prime competitor in denouncing Israel’s war on terrorism, in opposing the US on Iraq, and in supporting the creation of a second Palestinian-Arab state in “Yesha”. A fortnight ago, (on October 6 - see Arab News) terrorists bombed the French ship Limburg in Yemen.

Talk about Irony.
