A couple of months ago, I opined that Israel should pull back its forces after invading and destroying a number of Palestinian cities. My thinking was that an Israeli withdrawal might give peace talks a chance to get under way. When Ehud Barak appeared on The Factor, I suggested to him that if the bombings continued, Israel could go right back in.
Well, the homicide bombings have continued, and the situation is now totally out of control. Arafat can’t handle Hamas and other killers, and civilians are laying dead in the streets.
So now Israel should take any and all measures to kill the terrorists. Whatever the Sharon government deems appropriate should be done. No cause, no injustice can justify bombing attacks on buses and restaurants where children are. That is simply unacceptable in the name of any movement.
Foolish people who justify such murder will always point to atrocities on the other side. Al Qaeda does that. Those terrorists believe they can kill American civilians because we support Israel, and on and on.
But those arguments can only persuade sick minds. The truth is that some Palestinian terrorist groups want to destroy Israel and will not negotiate. Those people must be killed, and America should support Israel in its quest to eliminate the terrorist leadership.
Enough is enough. All decent human beings must act against the growing terror that threatens this world. Excuses for the murder of innocent civilians must be condemned.
It’s about time, buddy!
