Representatives of the Israeli cabinet were said to be furious last night as reports circulated that the much anticipated War of Annihilation between Israel and the Muslim World has been cancelled yet again.
One source told this correspondent that growing numbers of Zionists are starting to feel like their government might not be fully committed to the policy of purging unbelievers and inaugurating an era of ethnic and religious purity in the Jewish nation.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the dustbowl, Palestinians and Muslims of other nations are also embarrassed by the continued delays to their bloody apocalypse. 'Problem with an event like this,' one bearded ululator confided, 'is it gets too bureaucratic. People just want to take to the streets and proudly watch their children charge Israeli tanks with crude bombs strapped to their chests, but those at the top are determined to micro-manage and package the whole event.'
Considering the conflict could involve nuclear as well as biological and chemical weapons, most atrocity pundits are saying that this could be the century's blockbuster deathorgy. One thing is clear - the determination of both sides to utterly destroy each other (and as many of the rest of us as they possibly can!) remains undiminished - even as the pretext once again becomes confused.
