Reader comment on item: Palestinians Don't Deserve Additional Aid

Submitted by Donald O (United States), Dec 21, 2004 at 20:06

I agree with one of the 1st comments and the last one as well. The aid should be in the form of secular books [nothing Islamic whatsoever] so they understand the theories of democracy, peace, reason, tolerance etc. If they [Palestinians in this case!] choose not to accept/learn these principles - they will reveal what their real long-term goals are! They need to realize that they constitute 15% of the world's population at best and must learn to accept/tolerate others in this world. Otherwise they can steam isolated in their own Islamic world. And no aid to mosques in Europe or USA.
