In light of the recent attacks on the state of Israel by Hamas and the continuing issues with Hezbollah and the Palestinians, I want to take a moment to remind readers of some of what I have said in the past regarding this geopolitical situation on this site. My overall view is the same and can be aptly summarized in this phrasing from social media posted ten years ago yesterday:

If a group seeking more land cannot run what they already have without screwing it up royally, then they are incapable of handling greater land responsibility and should be refused!

This is in a nutshell what I referred to in the thread link above as The McElhinney Gaza Scholastic Postulate. And it explains why I view the Middle East situation as I do, especially in light of the recent Abraham Accords which gives even less reason to care a whit about groups who have already wasted far too many people's time and energies on their irrational idiocies. But I digress.

Today is the 19th anniversary of the passing of my uncle David Kanski. If readers could offer some prayers for the eternal repose of his soul, I would appreciate it.

Eternal rest grant unto his soul oh Lord and may thy perpetual light shine upon him...May his soul and all the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
