An update onÂ this story. Christopher Hitchens’ useful discussion of semantic engineering in the use of terms like “activists” for the participants in these recent spectacles can be foundÂ here. “Israel blocks pro-Palestinian ‘flytilla’ activists,” by Yolande Knell forÂ BBCÂ News, July 8:

The Palistanian Money Pit
The Palestinian Authority is facingÂ a budget crisis. It has reached its borrowing limit and has a 585 million dollar deficit. So naturally its leaders are asking the West for another handout.
Back in 2007, 7.4 billion dollars was pledged to keep the terrorist edifice of the Authority running. The PA claimed that it needed 3.9 billion for budgetary shortfalls alone. And after pissing away far more than that, the men who give the suicide bombers their marching orders are back passing around the plate.
