Reader comment on item: Israel is Winning

Submitted by Norman Mann (United States), Aug 8, 2002 at 09:45

I am sick and tired of hearing reports about the sad plight of the Palestinian children. Hasn't anyone looked at the newspaper pictures of the Arab kids dressed up in their designer "t" shirts, baseball caps, Nike sneakers and looking robust and full of joy in throwing stones and other objects at the Israelis. Hasn't anyone told the Arabs that because of the sadistic suicide and drive by bombers that they are receiving the least lethal reprisal from the IDF? Hasn't anyone listened with disgust to the Arab mothers with 6 to 8 healthy children who wish their children could be suicide bombers? Has any one in the "free world" criticized with vigor the Arabs who sit around and plot the death, maiming and destruction of Israelis which is the reason they are experiencing some discomfort. Has any Islamic court or Imam issued a condemnation or fatwa against the suicide bombers? The answers are that there is a deafening silence from those who just find it easy to criticize Israel for defending itself.

The Arabs use the time tried tactic of the criminal who has just murdered his parents and pleads for understanding and sympathy because they are now orphans. Where are the intelligent Europeans who have watched Arabs in Gaza and those in the territories dance with joy when the mad bombers have created deadly carnage with their deliberate massacres not only at the Hebrew University but after the destruction of the World Trade Center? My advice to the crying Arabs is to get them to turn over the terror squads and destroy the murderous gangs of PA affiliates and then they will be surprised at how fast their self made needs will be restored. JUST GIVE ME A BREAK FROM THESE VIOLENT TERROR SUPPORTING ARABS. THEIR LAMENT IS A FUNCTION OF THEIR OWN ACTIONS.
