Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Hospitality

This posting got lost a few months back, on July 20 2006, in the middle of the Israeli counterstrike against Hizballah's territory in Lebanon. It is as true now as it ever was.

Imagine if you will that a friend of a friend comes to visit your country and your town, and because of your friendship you agree to let him stay at your house. Imagine that one day you come home to find that your visitor has gone to visit the neighbor's house and killed someone there. It turns out that your visitor is a murderous madman.

Are you responsible for what your visitor has done? What do you do? If the visitor is too scary for you to kill or capture yourself, then what do you do? What are the limits of hospitality? And which is more important, GOOD or FRIENDSHIP, however distant?

That is the situation that Lebanon is in. She has a visitor from Iran named Hizballah who has been murdering the neighbors. Now the neighbors are going through Lebanon's house to look for the murderer, who is hidden somewhere in the house and has hidden weapons under the baby's crib, behind the toilet, and under every mattress. It's time for Lebanon to take responsibility for the actions of their guest and STOP HIZBALLAH BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
