Why this double standard

Reader comment on item: "[Symposium] On the Strip: Where To Go from Gaza?"

Submitted by Amitabh tripathi (India), Jun 30, 2006 at 08:03

Dr Daniel Pipes has raised very relevant and important issue. In context of Israel and India it seems as America is not ready to realise the ground reality. Conflict between Israel and Palestine is not based on terririorial dispute and could not be solved with concessional policy.

Palestine media watch in its latest bulletin has released a cassette of a Hamas terrorist leader Yasser Ghalben who was killed last week in intra factional war of Palestine . In this cassette Yasser has declared the mission of his organisation which is not confined only to pull out Jews from Gaza but it will continue till America runs away from Iraq and Afghanistan, Rusia from Chechnya and Hindus from Kashmir. It suggests how Islamic terrorism of one territory has direct effect on other non-muslim terrirtories also.

It also points out goal of Islamic terrorists. But unfortunately America is still following double standard in war against Islamic terrorism . It has centred its focus on Al-Queda and Taliban and shutting its eyes from those forces who are providing logistical support and shelter to these outfits .

America should realise the global nature and interconnectivity of Islamic terrorists . One terrorist organisation or one terrorist leader's elimination in no way is going to solve the problem untill foul ambition of Islamic imperalism will be defeated in every single territory of this world .
