Reader comment on item: Anti-Israel Terror Backfires

Submitted by Steven Hess (United States), Apr 20, 2004 at 14:21

As many like to say: "From your lips to God's ear," If the Arab world, and specifically the Palestinian, was rational, one might in fact conclude that anti-Israel terror has backfired. But we are dealing with people who proclaim that they "love death" and who willingly send out their beloved children as human bombs. If this policy has "backfired" it has done so only in the minds of the enlightened and there are precious few of those among the Arabs.

Israel should kill terrorists and their leaders when and where they can--the more the better but these weeds sprout faster than the ability to mow them down and the fact is that the Arabs will never, not ever, accept a Jewish presence in the mid-East. There is no peaceful long-term solution.
