Eyeless in Jerusalem & Washington

Reader comment on item: Fund the Palestinians? Bad Idea

Submitted by Rena Cohen (United States), Dec 20, 2007 at 09:49

Dr. Pipes – you are absolutely right. Unfortunately, we appear to have entered yet another horrible chapter in which all who notice that when it comes to terror we get precisely what we pay for are made to feel more or less like Cassandras.

It never ceases to amaze me how, whether deliberately or naively, the most monstrous undertakings are cheerily endorsed and undertaken as long as they bear the stamp of "peace." Eyeless in Jerusalem and in Washington, we are. Nevertheless, it is important to put forward these critiques as at some point – though I'd be glad to be wrong – either an orgy of violence or an orgy of embezzlement, or both, will cause at least some people in one of these locations (or their constituents) to wake up and smell the Molotov cocktails…
