Boy, those folks at PETA are real pieces of work.
On January 26, a bomb exploded in Jerusalem. By all measurements, this bomb blast was a small one. Thank God, no one was killed and only one person needed to be treated for shock.
However, the delivery method was a little unusual. You see, in this instance, the Palestinians took a donkey, loaded it up with bombs and sent it out. The bombs were detonated by cell phone.
Sure enough, on Feb 3, Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA, sent a fax to Yasser Arafat – not condemning the fact that there was a bombing – but condemning the use of a donkey. In other words, until now PETA hasn’t said a word about the deaths and human suffering (both Israeli and Palestinian) in the Middle East. But, let a donkey get blown up, and lo and behold, there they are in all their righteousness, sticking up for the innocent victims. :rolleyes:

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think that animals should be used as weapons. I just find it odd that (even though PETA is an animal rights organization), they couldn’t even give a statement about the human suffering that’s been going on for years, but finally open thier mouths when a donkey is blown up.
