G8 Aids Terrorism
By David Holcberg
The G8 leaders' decision to give billions of dollars to the Palestinian Authority in the aftermath of the terrorist bombings in London will only encourage more terrorism.
A large portion of this money will no doubt find its way into the coffers of terrorist groups that will use it not only against Israel but against Western nations, including England. Remember, the Palestinian Authority is a corrupt semi-government that has actively promoted terrorism against Israel and that has numerous connections to Islamic terrorist groups.
This monetary prize handed to a state sponsor of terrorism will not appease the terrorists--or their sympathizers in the Arab and Muslim world. They will see this handout as a sign of moral weakness, and they will be right.
If the G8 leaders are really concerned about fighting Islamic terrorism and ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, they should begin by supporting the victims of terrorism, not the perpetrators.
