...Pipes hits the nail right on the head!

Reader comment on item: Bush is rewarding [Palestinian] terrorism

From : Bush is rewarding terrorism - Daniel Pipes

Few possess the ability to see reality, to say what is truth
quite like you in such a clear concise manner... time after time.
Of all the op-eds and editorials I read today, none came close to the scope of what you wrote.
Sadly those who possess the greatest amount of credibility, dance around the 'real' issues and miss the chance for real change, for true peace, in exchange for political correctness.

In your brilliant essay you stated:
- Moral equivalence: Bush implies a basic commonality between the plight of Israelis who suffer terrorism and the Palestinians who inflict it. "It is untenable for Israeli citizens to live in terror. It is untenable for Palestinians to live in squalor and occupation." To see the error of this statement, change it to "It is untenable for American citizens to live in terror. It is untenable for Afghans to live in squalor and occupation."
George W. stated a simplistic commonality which in itself is morally wrong.
Sadly our president in part is ruled by the Department of State, rather than what he knows to be true.
In the mean time all people who embrace freedom should stand tall and fight for those who wish to destroy us.

From myself, my family and friends both here and in Israel we wish you PEACE.
Thank you so very much.
