Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"
in response to reader comment: Walid Shoebat - hero or snakeoil salesman?

This article is ridiculous. First off, you won't find anything about Walid Shoebat as a PLO terrorist because it's an assumed name. If your family was threatened and your life was in danger, would you not live under an assumed name? And would you reveal documents that had your real name? Would you honestly be that stupid?

I am not even eighteen and I can see what a dangerous mistake that would be to broadcast your name where the terrorists who want to kill you can see it. If you have someone's name, it is very easy to track them. I pity you if you do not have the sense to see why he doesn't wave documents showing he was a terrorist in your face.

Second, if you are the first to condemn palestinian terror, why are you criticizing a man who has the courage to stand against it? That doesn't exactly scream condemnation. And may I remind you that "Europe" did not kill 6 million Jews. It was Germany. Germany and Hitler. I do recall most of Europe being appalled at the Holocaust. Need I add that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem supported Hitler. If you didn't know, the Grand Mufti was in fact Muslim.

Third, have you ever heard the saying, "never trust a man who sells out his own people," used for a man who stands up for what he believes in. That saying generally applies to a traitor. How, pray tell, does condeming the slaughter of Jews in a Muslim country constitute treacherey? Would you like every Palestinian, Iranian, Afghani, etc. to promote terrorism just so they don't "sell out their own people?"

If that is what you think, then you have serious issues. Word of advice, know what you're talking about before you open you mouth. I'd like to see from your point of view, but I can't ...
