Beware the flames of frustration in the streets of Gaza

Reader comment on item: "Today Gaza, Tomorrow Jerusalem"

Submitted by Melvin Hassan (United States), Aug 10, 2005 at 20:53

For sixty years the Palestinians have been indoctrinating their children with hatred.
In their homes and in their schools they have been molding a generation imbued with hatred of Americans, Jews and Israelis.

Abbas, granted an opportunity, rejected by his predecessor, has yet to decide whether he will serve the best interests of his Palestinian brethren or the dictates of the Fundamentalist Arab Despots who are intent on sacrificing the last Palestinian to perpetuate their regimes.

An indecisive Abbas is now, reluctantly, embracing a measure of constraint and silent cooperation with the Coalition of Forces against Terrorists. If he does not move to curtail the destructive elements in Gaza, he may soon find out how hatred, carefully nurtured through the years, turns into the most heinous form of self-destructive-frustration.
Corrupt despotic leaders and their cohorts usually end up on the gallows they erect for others.
