Unabashed Support for Israel Vital to Winning War

Reader comment on item: Polls, Palestinians and the Path to Peace

Once again, the word from the 'American Street' is unequivocal and realistic---support Israel since the majority of Palestinians desire western democracy's destruction; if only our president and his secretary of state would wake up to that imminent fact.
Since the terrorist atrocities of 9/11 the Bush administration has embraced Arafat and his Mideast Mafia as morally equivalent partners for a peace which has resulted in unprecedented carnage wreaked upon the Israeli public. This is not only disheartening to those who took Bush at his word that any entity which supported terrorism would be dealt with harshly; it gives sanction to terrorists and leaves a dangerous precedent that we will actually blink when confronted with such heinous regimes.
Even when faced with shiploads of arms intercepted from the murderous mullahs of Iran bound for the 'peace-loving' Arafat ,Powell and his boss refuse to admit the incontrovertible----Arafat is the murderous, duplicitous thug known to those realists who are steeped in the facts of the modern Middle East. Until Arafat and every one of his henchmen in the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and Islamic Jihad are driven to ground or, better yet, put under the ground, a key nexus of Mideast terrorism will continue to flourish. In what Benjamin Netanyahu so astutely describes as 'Arafatistan' various intelligence agencies have confirmed that Al-Quaeda fighters have found a hospitable home from which they can attack America's only democratic Mideast ally.
Israel is the future's face for all America----should Bush and Powell continue to shy away from applying overwhelming, devastating military power against the terrorist international, be it Iraq, Syria or the Gaza Strip, we will find our own homeland subject to the onslaughts of bloody Islamists bent on wiping out our culture and way of life.
