MR Daniel Pipes is very much right in his assessment about Palestianian Arabs reaction on the Israeli pull out from Gaza. It is very strange to see policy makers from world wide chalking out same strategy to fight Islam.They know very well why terrorism is going on in their territories but still they pretend to tackle it in diplomatic manner.

Israel is a role model for those countries who are suffering from the virus of fanatic Islamic terrorism but latest decision of this country to pull out from Gaza will discourage the war against terrorism. Terrorism by Islamists are from not any angle is law & problem . It is a theological problem and it should be dealt in that manner only.In the whole world right from America,Europe,Israel to Asia. Islamists want their own Utopian world of Khilafat. Their firm belief is they will occupy this world by forcing others to evacuate their lands.In making this dream true terrorism is their main weapon. Their consistent violence is part of their theology.In every corner of world they are forcing native people to run away from their places. Indian state of kashmir is the best example of this, because of these Islamists more than 2 lakhs hindus evacuated their lands to become migrants in their own country.Now they are applying same technic for Israel.
But decision of government of Israel is more dissappointing because this time Islamists have forced a state to bow down before their demands by escalating consistent violence.Before taking such big decision Israel has to think seriously about its implications on world politics also.From last one year Islamic terrorists had adopted a method to influence world opinions and states as well by using violence.This latest decision of Israeli government to evacuate parts of its territory for palestinian Arabs will only encourage Islamic terrorists and they will take it as their victory.It will increse the frequency of terrorist violence world over and suicide bombing in particular.
