Freedom is the fundamental political reqirement for humans

Reader comment on item: Pro-Israel Palestinians

Submitted by Ralph C. Whaley MD (United States), May 11, 2005 at 09:54

The observations noted in this article demonstrate that even those living under Palestinian Arab tyrants understand to some degree, that freedom is essential for human happiness. They recognize that it is a condition abundant in Israel and absent in their miserable state.

Tyranny is the enemy of human life. Political freedom and its protection by government is essential for men to pursue and attain individual happiness on earth. Political freedom includes private property, freedom of speech, peaceful assembly, religion, petition for redress of grievences, and rule of law, a written constitution with laws giving clear statements of what is not allowed and the sanction to be imposed on those who vioalte the laws and trials for adjudicating charges of violations by juries of ones peers to determine guilt or innocence.

The Mid-east has only one nation that has any semblance of these conditions and that is Israel. Israel deserves America's support. No other current government in the area does!
