Reader comment on item: Palestinians Taste a Dose of Their Own Medicine

Submitted by Dan (United States), Nov 16, 2005 at 12:34

In all the discussion regarding the bombings in Amman, the one ingredient I did not see discussed is the reason for the assautl (its certainly possible I missed this in the media). And if so, I apologize for my post. Having said that, it is possible this event was in fact a tactical error, after all, in the end, just how smart are these criminals? Look at all the ridiculousness they actually believe in. Its not a giant leap to think they may have simply missed the correct target. Maybe they got the wrong coordinates. Who knows. It must have been a mistake, afterall, look how upset the Jordanians were about this event. As others have amply pointed out, its celebration time when the Jews, Americans or westerners get blown to smithereens, but when its their own, its a terrible event! So the whole thing MUST have been a simple mistake.

The western world remains in its selfimposed dreamland when thinking about the religion of peace; it is only a religion of peace if you're a muslim and even there I'm not so sure. The most important question is how to put all the intelligence showcased by Dr. Pipes and the posters here into legitimate policy to protect the US, I believe when the large domino called France falls, Europe is gone but there is still hope for the us if we have effective leaders who are not afraid to call the problem what it is; an ideology called islamism.
