The Palestinians are Waking Up

Reader comment on item: Anti-Israel Terror Backfires

Submitted by Arlinda DeAngelis (United States), Apr 20, 2004 at 21:00

Perhaps I am being obtuse, but I was more concerned about Israel's economy and this war than I was about the Palestinian economy that has been on a downward spiral because of Arafat's corruption.

Perhaps the Palestinians are learning they've been had by that murderous despotic Arafat and his cause that enriches only him.

Nothing will become him so in life as his leaving of it.

Israel's strong stand is a marvel. They are an indomitable people and can be called without reservation one of the great wonders of the world. I am glad they are part of our family of nations and they make me proud to say, I am a Zionist.

Thank you for your enlightening and eye opening commentary.
