Every now and then I do some linking. Now seems to be one of those times:

(1) At the news of Zarqawi's untimely demise, many in the blogosphere (including myself) reached towards "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" for inspiration. But not the far more lyrically gifted Dr. Sanity, who's channeling Sondheim instead.

(2) Richard Landes speculates on whether or not the latest Gaza killing of a family on the beach might be Ballywood inspired or manipulated. A tragedy any way you look at it; you be the judge (and see here for initial results of the IDF probe into the incident).

(3) At Treasure of Baghdad, an Iraqi journalist who had not heretofore been pro-American or pro-occupation expresses joy, and a burgeoning optimism and trust, at the death of Zarqawi and its ramifications.

(4) The above Treasure of Baghdad post came via a link at Alexandra's All Things Beautiful. Alexandra herself has been working overtime lately on topics such as Haditha; as well as the manner, effect, and media coverage of Zarqawi's death.

(5) They can smell cocaine and cancer, and cows in heat.

If the IDF stopped shelling fifteen minutes before the family was killed, doesn't that prove the diabolical nature of the Israeli Navy? They fired a time delayed shell to land in the beach next to the innocent Palestinian family at play. The young son, thinking the shell's a toy, starts taking it apart to get at the high explosive, no doubt thinking of all the IED's he can make and show his friends at school. Suddenly, before he can complete the dismantling, the timer expires, and the shell explodes, interrupting the moment of pride for a young father and mother watching their son prepare for his future.
Diabolical, atrociously despicably diabolical. Zionist devils.

Hi Neo - I think you meant to say "Paliwood" or "Pallywood."

Oops, yes "Pallywood." I wouldn't want to blame the Indian film industry!

Great roundup. I tried to improve the rythm a bit of Dr. Sanity's fine Bozo post: Send in More Clowns.

I'd sing it but it's too much joy at one evil person's death. Did you know the Judy Collins version is different than the Barbara Streisand (which is what's listed as Sondheim's version)?
