How terrorism takes root ....

Reader comment on item: Don't deal with terrorists

Submitted by DebG (United States), Jan 27, 2006 at 15:26

I feel it important to re-explain to the West how terrorism takes root,
i.e. with the coercion/threat/murder of innocents in the "neighborhood" of the terrorists themselves, be it Gaza or South Lebanon.

Those who don't cooperate with them are threatened and the threats are carried out when cooperation is not forthcoming,

So it's "cooperate or die," "hide these weapons or die," in order for terrorists to begin to succeed to prevail over their very own people.
