"Resistance is our strategy"

Anyway, that's what the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades say. Clancy Chassay, who filmed and edited this fantastic video report from Gaza, isn't the kind of reporter who is going to ask any critical questions. (Um, what exactly does that mean, this "resistance," and how exactly does that constitute a "strategy" that's going to make your people safer and not just provoke furious retaliation?) He's more likely to buy into this whole "noble resistance" thing and blame the U.S. for the region's troubles. That said, who cares? As long as his guerrilla-romancing politics allow him to carry out this kind of "insurgent's eye-view" reporting, Abu Muqawama applauds and will pick up his bar tab in whatever trendy Gemmayze cafe he frequents these days.
