Comic Relief

Oy, as hard as everything involving the Disengagement has been on everyone involved and tens of thousands (more?) around the world who have been focusing on it so closely lately, it's sometimes nice to have some comic relief.

I found the following article posted this evening on a fairly strange blog, which I had never seen before, and I found it very interesting. Unfortunately I was unable to find the actual, original article, supposedly disseminated by the Associated Press, after several Google searches. But I did find a press release about the same topic on the website of the organization mentioned.

Here's the "article" as I found it:

Animal rights group awaits permission to enter Gaza to save strays
By The Associated Press

An Animal rights group is trying to rescue dogs and cats left behind by settlers being evacuated in the Gaza Strip.

Hakol Chai (Everything Lives) is awaiting permission to bring in a mobile veterinary clinic replete with cages, traps and trained staff.

"Cats and dogs left behind by departing settlers have no ability to survive under the extreme conditions that will exist during and after the disengagement," said Merav Barlev, the group's director. "Without our help, when all that remains is dust and ruins, those who escape the massive bulldozers will die of hunger, thirst, and injuries."

for some reason it reminds me of when PETA complained that hamas used a donkey to try blow up a bunch of Israelis, why would PETA care that a bunch of Jews almost died, the problem was that they used an animal to carry out the attack, better they use a suicide bomber, shows how much PETA likes humans.
