Denial, Denial, Everywhere

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Submitted by Eliott (United States), Jul 9, 2002 at 11:44

Denial of reality is the reason why it took 20 months of terrorist violence before W stated that Arafat must go.

This is why Peres and Co. STILL maintain we must "deal with Arafa"."

This is why violent Muslim anti-Semitism in Europe is referred to by the authorities as "hooliganism."

And here in the U.S., even after September 11, the denial STILL goes on...so idiotically, that we will continue to search Al Gore and his grandmother for weapons at the airport, while sleeper killers plan their next move.

Europeans have a long history of paying blackmail to Barbary (Muslim) pirates and terrorists. But the USA created the Marines rather than pay tribute to pirates. Why are we this time sticking our collective heads in the sand??

How many more must die before we call a spade a spade??
