Palestinian Culture Is a Culture of Death
By Scott A. McConnell (July 30, 2004)
After a meeting this Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, President Bush called on Arab states "to reject the culture of extremism and violence" that is a fundamental cause of terrorism. Unfortunately, the president's call will fall on deaf ears.
Palestinian culture is a culture of death. In this culture it is considered proper and moral to dress children in the garb of suicide bombers, to idolize those who kill themselves in the process of murdering women and children, to teach in school that Jews are evil and must be swept into the sea, and to govern through economic and political corruption, and through torture and murder. Palestinian culture is irrational and dangerous and not open to reason. Israel, like any free state, has the right, if attacked, to destroy such an enemy. The blame for the violence rests not with the culture of life defending itself but with those death seekers who believe only in destruction. When will Americans and their media get it?
