They Made Their Choice--Let Them Live With It

Reader comment on item: Why Hamas['s Electoral Victory] Leaves Me Neutral

Submitted by Jane O (United States), Jan 31, 2006 at 11:35

I completely agree with Dr. Pipes' words. For me personally, the election proved that I can no longer hope the majority of Palestinians were being deceived by their leaders. I would cut off any and all aid to the entire population. They were willing to show the world by their votes how they felt, so let their chosen leaders lead and support them.

I, for one, have no desire to support terrorism in any form. Our hard earned tax dollars should never be wasted on Palestians who clearly support and prefer radical Islam and terror to modern legitimate governing. We should spend our money more wisely. Money is limited and needs to go where it can do the most good.
