Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Vance A. Bailey (United States), Jun 20, 2002 at 10:35

I would suggest that the Israelis are on the wrong track to stop the "suicide " bombers.
They should follow the example of the Romans at the time of the Caesars and when you kill your opponent , you kill his wife, children,their children and all his living ancestors. Then you don't have to watch your back from that quarter.

The "suicide" bombers achieve martyrdom, kill Israelis, cause incursions that inflame hatred on the part of the Palestinians, and they famly becomes wealthy. Remove the family from that equation and the bombing will cease.
