Reader comment on item: Maher Hawash: The Terrorist Next Door

Submitted by Gershon Y. Perry, M.D., F.A.C.C. (United States), Aug 12, 2003 at 22:14

There are elements in this country who will cut their nose to spite their face as you so vividly demonstrated. They can not be confused by the facts... Unfortunately, in the process, I am concerned that the nose of Miss Liberty will be chopped off too.

When I see the daily carnage in Israel and in New York City (9-11), I can state that those who have no respect for human life, will have no restrains killing democracy that this great nation is cherishing and stands for. Democracy has to defend itself, and should not be bound to using democratic means to protect itself from those who do not believe in democracy or the right of others to live in peace.

I wonder what you Daniel think about this.
