If I were king of the world...

Reader comment on item: State (Dept.) of Confusion [when It Comes to Palestinian Terror against Israel]

Submitted by David Smyth (United States), Jul 19, 2004 at 16:12

If I were king of this world, I would declare that any use of terrorism will instantly enjoin not only severe retaliation against those responsible, but their "CAUSE" is thereafter rendered MOOT. [why the U.S. State Dept. does NOT adhere to this policy I cannot fathom.]

Resorting to Terrorism renders the perpetrators *CAUSE* MOOT. Theirs is a criminal act, not a self defensive one.

We, (the U.S.) should not even be giving "Humanitarian" aid to the middle east, (except to help Isreal defend itself) Our giving aid is a form of tacit consent towards terrorism and a case COULD be made that it ASSISTS terrorists.

Does not money/food 'aid' allows them to continue to plot their evil deeds, instead of them worrying about "how can I make a living", they are given the warewithall to survive and can then plot their murderous deeds.

Their terrorism, is NOT a quest for survival, it is a deed of DEATH.

Israal, the U.S. in Iraq, and the western technology world in general is always willing to "live and let live". Terrorists attack those who do and mean them no harm (as a matter of POLICY!) - (unless in self defense in response to their murderous work).

The "Palestinians" are FAR BETTER OFF under ISRAEL than they are now - being forced into being literal cannon fodder in their sucide attacks.
