Greenhouses in Gaza

Remember those high-tech greenhouses Israeli settlers built in Gaza, that provided employment for Palestinians and produced an amazing assortment of fruits and vegetables in the midst of barren desert? The ones that rich Westerners (like Bill Gates) bought and presented to the Palestinian Authority when Israel withdrew from Gaza?


Go read this post at Little Green Footballs, complete with Reuters picture, to see these lush gardens.

As I said in this post, these people are barbarians.

Derivatives are the fun!

I have no idea what that means, especially in the context of this post. Maybe anonymous was smoking something from a greenhouse :-)

How many times do I have to tell you, they're a rich, vibrant, in tune with Nature culture, and they're oppressed and marginalized and disenfranchised and disempowered and victimized!

Respect Diversity!

It means that I enjoy finding derivatives of functions!

Barbarians? These people had a civilization while our ancestors were in caves.

Not the nicest people, but far more trustworthy than jews.

Darren said...

So let's see, anonymous. Self-loathing, and anti-Semitic, too.

Why am I not surprised?

These people likely _were_ Jews, or Christians, until forced to convert by the sword a few hundred years ago.

Let's boil this down to the basics-two cultures live side by side for thousands of years. One culture seeks to scratch an existence out of the barren land through hard work, skill and ingenuity. The other culture, full of envy not only seeks to destroy the opposing culture, but to destroy all of its good works. This is seen over and over again in such things as the destruction of one of the oldest statues of Buddha in Afghanistan as well as the random and wanton destruction of kibbutz structures in what is mistakenly called palestine. Which culture is the culture of life and which is the culture of death? That's what it boils down to.

Wow, anti-Semites and anti-Muslim commenters in one post!

Why are you'll talking about barbarians and Jews when Mr. Miller's post was about a girl who was suspened for nothing?

Darren said...

Different post :-)

Darren said...

Not anti-Muslim. I'm judging these particular people on their actions, not the fact that they're Muslim.

That they happen to be barbarians *and* Muslim may or may not be a coincidence.

Wasn't accusing you, Darren. I meant the two commenters. And it is a coincidince. Sure, some muslims kill people, but so do members of every other group in the world.

Boy did I call this one. Israel hands over Gaza, gives the "Palestinians" all kinds of nice infrastructure that they immediately begin to destroy because apparantly it's Jew-contaminated. Now they're starving and destitute and it's Israel's fault.

But then it's ALWAYS Israel's fault, so no news here.

Don't get too cocky jetgirl. Predicting the result of Isreal handing over the Gaza is about as tough as predicting the sunrise. There's just so much in the way of precedent that predicting anything else is what would take either courage or an unrealistic point of view.

I see you failed history.
