Blind

Reader comment on item: [The Abu Ali Case and] Balancing Liberties, Security

Submitted by Donald W. Bales (United States), Mar 1, 2005 at 18:22

Are these people blind? Not visually blind, but mentally blind. Not dumb as in unable to speak, but dumb as in stupid.
Do they not realize that we are in World War IV with an implacable, determined, clever, and evil enemy?

Of course, as they have reacted to the terror against Israelis and Jews, in their minds, plots against President are okay. After all, he is responsible for all our troubles. Threats against the President, no matter who he is, or of what party, is an attack against us all.
I have only just learned what the culprit was the valedictorian of. Probably such plots aided his being chosen as valedictorian in that school. I was under the impression before that it a U.S. school and not a Muslim one.

It is time we did something about the mosques and madrassas spewing out lies and hatred. in the U.S. and it is time that we leaned on the Egyptians and the Saudis to stop in theirs.

Don't we give a lot of money to Egypt? Wasn't it a bribe to make peace with Israel? Was not there some idea that they would stop preaching hatred of Israel and Israelis as part of the peace treaty? Why give money to the Palestinians when they continue to promote terrorism?

Of course, certain groups think terrorism against Jews and Israelis is really not as bad as it would be to some other groups. Many European countries evidently felt that way per Alan Dershowitz's book, "Why Terrorism Works." I don't like many of Alan Dershowitz's views, but I surely did like his book and I think he got it just right.

I didn't like JFK, but I deplored and was sorry for and angry about his being assassinated. I had an extreme visceral dislike for Bill Clinton (and still do-and for Hillary,also), but I would be very angry if someone tried to kill either one of them. (In Bill's case it was not that the TINO, Al Gore, would have become President, either-a horrible thought).
