Pipes Lidice

Pipes Lidice.  After the Nazis killed the ‘murderers’ in the Czech town of Lidice, and seized many others, the rest of the population of Lidice dispersed.  This is Pipes’ solution for the Palestinian villages from which – allegedly – Palestinian insurgents are firing rockets in the general direction of Israel.  Pipes is now a foreign policy advisor to Giuliani.  Do you think Rudy will drop Pipes for advocating Nazi-style collective punishment?

Curiously, Lidice is often listed in Holocaust commemorative websites, although the victims were not Jewish and the people hosting the websites take the position that only Jews died in the Holocaust.  It is such a good story they just can’t resist deceiving people.
