Parrish the Thought

It seems Carolyn Parrish is running her mouth again. Her latest round of idiocy? An email to CBC's the Hour, hosted by George sackofcrapopolous Stroumboulopoulos, in which she states the following:

"I have been to Israel, I have seen the wall, it is a wall of apartheid..."*

Well I've got news for the unhonourable Mrs. Parrish: That wall of apartheid is designed to prevent this kind of thing from happening (warning: very graffic). Perhaps you don't realize it, but it happens with startling regularity in that part of the world.

Where is the outrage at such an act? Why is building a fence equated with the unforgiveable sin, yet straping on a nail-laden semtex belt and exploding yourself in a marketplace or coffee shop is merely considered an act of civil disobedience?

Would someone please hit the voters of Mississauga-Erindale with a Clue-Bazooka? She cannot be elected again.

*Note: paraphrased as best I could remember. I just watched the show a few minutes ago.
