Piers Akerman, child hating Arabs, Middle Eastern Peace, and the fat owl tilts at the Nobel Peace Prize

In other news today, pious Piers Akerman, sometimes known as the fat owl of the remove to undergraduate adolescents with a childish sense of humor, announced that Arab people don't love their children.

Correction: the fat owl approvingly quotes Golda Meir saying there would be no peace until the Arabs learned to love their children.

Correction: there would be no peace until Arabs learned how to strap bombs on to eleven year olds and blew them all to bits, thereby ending the issue about loving their children. Dead children don't need love.

Correction: while Hamas might have been voted into power by democratic electoral processes, democracy doesn't count when the fat owl says it doesn't.

Correction: terrorist supporters in inner western Sydney councils are well-meaning idiots.

Correction: it's much more sensible to give real support for the people in Gaza through economic development, such as the Portland Trust charity which aims to raise funds for a billion dollar development in Ramallah, including 15,000 homes.

Correction: forget about Gaza, the last Israeli assault produced damage it's estimated will cost a billion and a half dollars to repair. Why throw good money after bad, why try to help people who don't love their children?

Correction: most of the killing in the world today is Muslim on Muslim. The United States tries hard, but doesn't try hard enough. Israel is just a minor player in Muslim killings. It has to lift its game. In 2007 they only managed a ratio of 1:25, which is admittedly better than 2002's 1:2.5, but nowhere near the target of 1:250 required to produce peace.

Finally, please be advised that peace is at hand in the middle east as a result of Pier's Akerman's column Israelis must face their own monsters.

In it, he outlines how both sides' motley collection of hardliners, right wing raving ratbags and loons need to settle down and let the moderates achieve some kind of settlement, rather than letting types like Israeli ultra-nationalist Avigdor Lieberman set the pace in negotiations with the hard men of Hamas.

Correction: Piers Akerman's column is entitled Muslims must face their own monsters, and shows that so long as sub-human, mongoloid, child hating, Islamic fundamentalist Arabs stalk the Palestinian landscape, there can be no peace. 

In his fair-minded appeal to child hating, Arab Islamic moderates, Piers throws his hat into the ring and stakes his claim for a Nobel Peace Prize. Put down your suicide bombs, you child hating moderates, and learn to love. 

The fat owl is generously making his own personally autographed - signed by Reg Livermore, John Waters and Jim Sharman -  copy of the original 1969 Festival Australian cast album of  Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical available to the peace process.

He is particularly cognizant of the lyrics of Easy to be hard:

How can people be so heartless
How can people be so cruel
Easy to be hard, easy to be cold.

How can people have no feelings
How can they ignore their friends
Easy to be proud, easy to say no

Especially people who care about strangers
Who care about evil and social injustice
Do you only care about bleeding crowd
How about a needing friend, I need a friend.

Sadly the fat owl only has rabid supporters, not quite the same as friends. So let's hear it for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Well if Henry Kissinger and Al Gore can win one, why not the fat owl?
