He took all the fun out of it

Little Green Footballs has a post about the Palestinians using abandoned and now destroyed synagogues as rocket launch sites for strikes against Israel. The money quote is this paragraph concerning a spokeman for the “Popular Resistance Committees” —

Mr. Abir blamed the Jewish state for the desecration of the Gaza synagogues by Palestinian Arabs, claiming the decision to leave the structures intact was part of an Israeli conspiracy. Israel “left the synagogues behind so the world would see the Palestinians destroying them,? Mr. Abir said.

Beyond all the obvious insanity, is not Abir effectively stating that the Palestinians are so stupid that they would walk right in to this Israeli trap, despite its obviousness? I would say that when your best excuse is “we’re violent and stupid”, you might want to rethink a bit.
