self-destructive tendencies

what the hell?

4 soldiers suspected of selling stolen ammunition to Palestinians

for some reason it reminds me of this. There is method to ZM's madness - it serves his purposes to be executed by the United States. Instead of dousing himself with gasoline, he is making his political statement using our Justice system. Let him. Our system is strong enough to allow him his statement.

and it reminds me of the tactics of suicide bombings used by Hamas and Fatah. These too are ultimately self-destructive:

People who want the right thing have an obligation to seek it the right way, even and perhaps especially when those who would deny them their rights operate with no such restrictions. This is what "fighting the good fight" is all about: those who struggle nobly cannot be defeated, but those who rely on calumny can never really win.
