Rewarding terror

Terrorism continues because terrorism works

Winning World War IV requires de-legitimizing terrorism. But terrorism today is a thriving enterprise because for at least three decades, terrorists have been rewarded. Republicans and Democrats alike have been responsible for this error. Europeans even more so.

Almost exactly 32 years ago, Palestinian terrorists entered the Olympic Village in Munich and massacred 11 innocent Israeli athletes. That act of mass murder was not considered sufficiently serious to merit canceling the Olympic games – or even postponing them for a day.

The group responsible for the killings, the Palestine Liberation Organization, received more encouragement than condemnation. Two years later, PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat was invited to address the UN. The PLO was welcomed to the General Assembly and “the question of Palestine” was introduced into the agenda.

A few years later, Arafat won the Nobel Peace Prize. Abu Daoud – the unrepentant terrorist who planned the 1972 massacres – received the Palestinian Prize for Culture.

And everyone else in the world with grievances and complaints learned the rules: Terrorism is acceptable. Terrorism works. Terrorism succeeds – like nothing else. So why not use it?,7340,L-3140711,00.html

This is the initial post which establishes this blog as a counter to the lies told by peacepalestine and Umkahill.

While there will be no censorship of ideas, certain language will be removed. Basically profanity.

great, you finally started your blog. That means you have total free reign to express yourself, and I can delete anything I wish from my blog without worrying that you feel cheated out of your free speech.

Have fun. Will come from time to time to comment.
