Submitted by Avraham Weissman (Israel), Apr 27, 2004 at 14:26

The very likely consequences of a premature withdrawal from Iraq will be - that is without the establishment of a viable state which features a pluralistic society - & in fact, anything that could be interpreted by the Moslem Arab world as a victory for Jihadi Islam - will result in a reinforcement of - and increase of worlwide Islamist jihadi terrorism and a strengthening of Islamic and Islamist power in Europe and in the USA.
