Martyrs for "Leverage"

Attention all you Palestinian martyr-wanna-bees out there: Your "sacrifice" is not for the "liberation of your Palestinian land". Rather, it is all for political leverage.
The head of the political department of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Farouq Al-Qaddoumi, has stressed the need to continue the Palestinian resistance against the Israeli occupation. Al-Qaddoumi said, "Any government without resistance will not be able to strengthen its 'cards' in the negotiations".
Kill yourself so some crooked politician can barter more effectively. Sounds like a plan. A bad plan, but you are free to squander your life as you wish.
