The genocide gene evolves

A large proportion of the current global population possess either a strong urge to commit genocide or else considerable vicarious enjoyment and justification of it. President Carter's abhorence of Israel's highly effective security barrier is a prime example of the latter. He'd much rather they take down the impediment so that the butchering, massacring, and slaughtering of Israelis can resume at previous levels and he can thereby derive the erotic enjoyment he desperately craves.

Over the centuries, those who committed genocide were more likely to reproduce than their victims, resulting in a gradual increase in the numbers of those descended from them. They did, however, run the occasional risk that their violent activities would result in their own premature deaths. Greater still are the numbers of those descended from those who did not participate in carnage directly, but supported and justified it from the sidelines. In such fashion have the supporters of terror managed to greatly increase by merely observing at a safe distance from the nasty business.

For the sake of appearances, terrorist supporters deny their secret pleasures and their hidden terrorist-enabling agendas. But they know full well what the consequences are of a civilized society not defending itself from bloodthirsty savages, and are prepared to reap ample enjoyment thereby. What is remarkable is that terror supporters do not realize how transparent their aims are. Once again, Jimmy Carter serves as a prime example. He doesn't mind taking such a high profile in his pro-genocide campaign because he thinks we don't see through his sick little game.
