APPROVAL OF SUICIDE BOMBERS

Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think

Submitted by HERB ABELOW (United States), Jun 27, 2006 at 11:19

YOU WROTE: Likewise, suicide bombing is popular. Muslims who call it justified range from 13% (in Germany) to 69% (in Nigeria). These appalling numbers suggest that terrorism by Muslims has deep roots and will remain a danger for years to come.

Think about this: has there ever been a response in-kind for a Suicide Bomber attack? Palestinian blows up a bus and kills 15 Israelis. Israel blows up a building...maybe. Have they ever paid a price for their deeds? Kill 15 Israelis...kill 150 Palestinians. 10 to 1. Kill 20 Israelis...kill 200 Palestinians. In a short time the Palestinians...and also the REST OF THE WORLD would have learned a long time ago that Suicide Bomber DON'T WORK!!! (never use the excuse that Palestinians are 'innocent civilians'. So are the Israelis...never mentioned in the media).

Since there never was a retaliation for Suicide Bomber, it is perfectly understandable that the Muslim World looks upon the act favorably. Like a spoiled child who has never been punished for bad deeds.

United States is making War with Iraq. Israel is making Peace with Palestinians. Palestinians are making War with Israel. When will Israel make War with Palestinians?
