The Palestinian Heart

Reader comment on item: Bush is rewarding [Palestinian] terrorism

Submitted by Dan McDowell (United States), Jun 26, 2002 at 21:44

The article was insightful, but it left out the most critical element: the Palestinian heart! The Palestinian heart is filled with hatred toward Jews. The Palestinian heart is polluted with vile slogans and beliefs. It is a heart that has been nurtured in lies and hate for an entire generation. That heart receives masked terrorists as heroes like we received Roy Rogers, and The Lone Ranger. That heart visions BAD as GOOD, and GOOD as BAD. That heart tolerates corruption as the lesser of evils, the greater being peace with a Jew. Strike at the HEART of the Palestinian and you'll have a better chance at changing his direction. Appeal to the realities of where their heart has brought them, and to where it will take them if there is no change and I believe that change is possible, but only BLUNT CONFRONTATION with the man on the street will penetrate all the armor that surrounds his heart. That armor guards against the most fearful threat of all. That threat is the realization that one, may indeed have, A THOROUGHLY CORRUPT HEART!
