Glenn Pulls No Punches
I've often thoght that "Instapundit" is a misnomer for Glenn Reynolds. A pundit is a source of opinion and Glenn mostly offers tons of stimulating links in a neutral tone. He is more of a wire-service than a pundit. However, something set him off yesterday and he let the Palestinians have it:

We should, in fact, be doing our best to make the Palestinians suffer, because, to put it bluntly, they are our enemies. [...] These folks are our enemies, and deserve to be treated as such. They don't deserve a state of their own. It's not clear that they even deserve to keep what they've got. [...]
But let's stop pretending that what's going on between Israel and the Palestinians is some sort of family misunderstanding. It's war, and the Palestinians -- and their EU supporters -- think it's a war not just against Israel, but against us.

Right on Glenn! He also linked to a piece I meant to post before, but I let time get away from me. Here, a former Green Party member of the European Parliment says that Europeans are funding Palestinian terrorism as part of a proxy war against the US. They are serious charges, but they ring true.

"The Europeans," explained MP Schroeder, "supported the Palestinian Authority with the aim of becoming its main sponsor, and through this, challenge the U.S. and present themselves as the future global power. Therefore, the Al-Aksa Intifada should be understood as a proxy war between Europe and the United States."

"It is an open secret within the European Parliament that EU aid to the Palestinian Authority has not been spent correctly," MP Schroeder said during a recent address in New York. "The European Parliament does not intend to verify whether European taxpayers' money could have been used to finance anti-Semitic murderous attacks. Unfortunately, this fits well with European policy in this area."

MP Schroeder, a twenty-five-year-old former member of the German Green Party, began her political career protesting the war in Kosovo and denouncing globalization.
