targeting palestinian civilians

Reader comment on item: Rashid Khalidi's Appointment at Columbia University

Submitted by Michael D. Kaplan, M.D. (United States), Sep 2, 2003 at 22:39

As usual, Mr. Khalidi's remarks are replete with rhetorical lies.

Specifically, why doesn't someone publicly reprimand him for his heinous statements regarding Israel's targeting of Palestinian civilians. ISRAEL DOES NOT TARGET CIVILIANS. The Arabs PURPOSELY put civilians in harm's way. They hide terror masters among women and children. And stone/firebomb throwing individuals are NOT civilians.

The Arab's only contribution to modern society is not merely the invention of terrorism.
They also proudly invented hiding terrorists amongst civilians, inviting retaliation and then exploiting the leftist media to publicize their enemy's (Israel) "targeted killing" of civilians as a "war crime."

It is high time for the educated world to wake up and recognize these cowardly propaganda tactics.
