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

Submitted by Mike (United States), Sep 9, 2003 at 20:35

How can the Israel government negotiate with an organization that wants every one of its citizens (men, women and children) dead?

I don't understand why the Israelies don't declare full out war on the Palistinians and go in and take out Hamas and Islamic Jihad themselves. At least then, their soldiers would be on the front line instead of their civilians.

I used to really have some sympathy for the Palistinian people's desire to have a country of their own, but groups like Hammas are just killers. They can talk all they want about thier "suffering", but now I just see a sick group of guys who get their jollies by murdering innocent children so they can gleefully watch the mothers cry. When I see the Palistinian people celebrating these murders I find myself not feeling anything for them anymore. It's really sad.
