Rice: Palestinians should live free of 'humilation of occupation'
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday that Palestinians deserve to live under better conditions than they are subjected to and be "free of the humiliation of occupation" in a state of their own.

"I promise you my personal commitment to that goal," Rice said at a dinner marking the third anniversary of the American Task Force on Palestine.

"There could be no greater legacy for America," Rice told the group, which describes itself as nonpartisan and supportive of a Palestinian state living side by side with Israel.

"The Palestinian people deserve a better life ... free of the humiliation of occupation," she said.

1. On the other hand, Iraqis LOVE being occupied!
In fact, they "tolerate" the death of over 655,000 of their civilians.

3. It's evil that I burst out laughing.
I suspect I wouldn't be laughing if I were an Iraqi and the men in my family had been kidnapped and tortured, or blown up for seeking a job, or........

Or maybe it's gotten so bad that I would have laughed.

5. You're not laughing AT them. You're laughing FOR them.
If we can't laugh, we die.

If we die, we fail.

If we fail, then this madness will go on forever.

2. Oh great. So we will be pushing Israel to withdraw
from the occupied territories? I suspect not. She is a liar.

4. The pot calling the kettle black...

and I mean no racist slur by saying that, I should add. It's just ironic that the Bushies would even think we have the moral authority to lecture Israel on occupation, or to lecture anyone on anything anymore since September 29th, especially. These people have some gall.
