The argument that one culture’s just as good as another fails to take into account that practitioners of one are using their heads for target practice:
It is a truth universally acknowledged that what goes up, eventually comes down.
Except in the reichlet of Gaza, and in most of the Arab/Muslim world.
When Muslims celebrate the beginning of a war, they fire their AK 47s into the air. When they celebrate the end of a war, they fire their AKs into the air. They blast away at weddings. They blast away when a Jew is kidnapped or murdered. Basically, they pull triggers at every opportunity.
Invariably, someone gets dead because bullets surprise! fall to the ground.
If this seems counterproductive well, things aren’t going to change any time soon. A recent such incident:
As the cease-fire began in Gaza, Tuesday evening it was supposed to start at 7 PM but rockets and mortar shells continued to fall in Israeli territory as late as 7:15 PM the V Day celebrations erupted in Gaza, after 50 days of clashes.
As is common on such occasions, thousands flocked in the streets, with many shooting randomly in the air, because that’s how folks have been expressing happiness in this region since the invention of gunpowder.
And then people started to drop in the streets. According to tweets from Gaza, as many as 2 locals were killed from those gunshots, and at least 25 were injured.
Life is cheap; but ammo is even cheaper.
