Noah Pollak: The Juicebox Mafia

I was reading this article by Noah here

:The Juicebox Mafia is working shifts on the Gaza crisis. Matthew Yglesias writes something dumb enough that it needs no elaboration:
But already the number of Israelis killed by Hamas rockets has increased (from a baseline of zero) since the retaliatory attack that was supposed to prevent such killings.
Spencer Ackerman, who becomes very Jewish when it comes time to condemn Israel:
Fellow lit’ry tribesman: do you believe for a moment that leveling Gaza will stop the rockets? Well, then you’ve lost your right to call the peaceniks naive.
Noah's main point is spot on.
No, what is interesting about the collective opinion of the Juicebox Mafia is the proposed rule of just war: Whoever kills more is the guilty party. This amounts to a total rejection of the distinction between aggression and self-defense and indeed the entire concept of deterrence. Taken to its logical conclusion, moral victory becomes impossible, because the moment one side has dispatched with a greater number of enemy than casualties have been suffered, justice has been forfeited. The only means of ethical conduct is pure immolation — which is indeed the prescription for Israel, expected to behave as the only true Christian nation on earth, responding to attacks by endlessly turning the other cheek.
I then noted that there were some comments criticizing Noah for his new term.
The Juicebox Mafia? When will they learn to write?
Which was almost a valid criticism until I saw this.....

So apparently there are Evil Zionist Juices, I just never knew. Vinnie suggests we can start calling Jooosef al-Khattab by his new name Juiceff al-Khattab.

Hat Tip: The Silent Majority who apparently took the above shot. Thanks to Urban Infidel.
Update by Stable Hand: The above shot was taken by Vigilant Squirrel Brigade.
