Thoughts on Hamas

Reader comment on item: Why Oslo's Hopes Turned to Dust

Submitted by Clintok (United States), Sep 9, 2003 at 13:03

I agree in many parts with what this article has stated. You cannot have peace until the will to fight is broken. There are more ways than one to break the will to fight.

Simply put, make the lives of those who embrace Hamas and Palestinian terrorists a living nightmare until they see that it will not work. Stop acting like Hamas is a legitimate organization. Stop preaching for the destruction of Israel, and STOP asking Israel to play by one set of rules while the terrorists play by another.

I can just imagine the scene if the UN stepped in and asked that we treat Al Quaida as America is asking Israel to treat Palestinians - when the Palestinians seem to enjoy having that rabid pitbull on call. Perhaps leveling the houses on either side of a suicide bombers house would serve as a better deterent. That mode of punishment works well in the military. If you screw up, the people on the left and right get punished. After a very short time, those people on the left and right of you see to it that you dont screw up. Harsh yes, but I am tired of looking at limbs strewn in the street. This is terrorism and it should be treated accordingly. Destroy those who perpetrate it and those who condone it.
