Online strip-poker games include Texas Holdem, 7 Card Stud and Racy Poker, and uncensored live porn is their come-on gimmick.
Termed “Operation Protective Edge”, the current deadly Muddled East cycle of violence started on July 8.
In a combination of huff ’n’ puff ’n’ bluff, greedy casino masterminds have overplayed their faceless, heartless hands in a pocket-rocket-and-misguided-missile shell game. Meanwhile uneven-odds mediators struggle to reconcile strident demands between the double-dealing Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades (the armed wing of Hamas) and the stacked-deck “Israeli Superiority Complex” unruly hardliners holding all five aces (including the wild-card Joker), intent on a Royal Flush.
Hamas is looking for a face-saving compromise that would end the suffocating blockade, provide an “honourable exit” and legitimise Palestinian homeland sovereignty. In war there are no victors. We’re all losers, raising a future global generation coping with anger, distrust, hatred and fear.
