Europeans are part of the problem

Reader comment on item: [Theo van Gogh and] "Education By Murder" in Holland

Dear Daniel,
You say the Europeans are waking up to Islamic extremism- would that were the truth.

Arafat was only a symbol of Europe's fear and hatred of the Jews. Those who legitimized him and delegitimized the Jews are still in power and the death of one man will make no difference.

Sounds simplistic? All international intelligence services and even his own people, for whom rumour is more credible than truth, were well aware of his talents as a cruel dictator, corrupt politician, sexual deviant, manipulator of good intentions and abuser of innocence. Nor were foreign journalists ‘deluded' nor did they really succumb to his ‘charms'. He was a tool of the Europeans and he served their purpose very well. Europe will never forgive the Jews for uncovering its uncivilized and coarse nature during, and before, the Holocaust.

Arafat united the Arabs through appealing to their basest instincts: blood-letting, jealousy, hatred and covetousness. Along with taking the Lord's name in vain at every opportunity he violated every commandment. And any methods would do – murder, lies, theft, bribery and fear. The Europeans were willing, even eager to go along with this as long as Israel was at the receiving end of the mayhem.

Even though the Europeans must realize that their tolerance has backfired, now that terror has been introduced as a norm in their own societies, they still have not learned that if you lie down with dogs you get up with fleas.
