"As to tolerance, the threats that are being made in Palestine is by those who cannot accept this democratic result -- the US and Israel. Threats of cutting funds, threats of killing the elected prime minister, threats of toppling the new government, and threats of overturning the election results are being made by those who are unable to tolerate the sovereign decision of the Palestinian people. What the US and Israel can't tolerate is people standing up to them."

"Standing up to them"... "threats of cutting funds".... What right do the Palestinians have to MY money? What possible reason am I to be expected to pay for them? What am I getting for my investment? For that matter, cut all aid to the Muslim nations - Egypt doesn't deserve my money either.

I remind you that Hitler was "elected" democratically. I think the Palestinians have made their desires quite clear. These terrorists attacks are not the actions of some roque element, but the will of these people. As such, any further terrorists attacks carried out by the "Palestinians" should be dealt with as the acts of war they are. Actions - and voting - have consequences for adults....
