What Palestinians Deserve
By David Holcberg (August 6, 2003)
Last week, President Bush asserted that "The Palestinian people, like people everywhere, deserve freedom, they deserve an honest government and they deserve peace." The truth, however, is that the vast majority of Palestinians deserve none of these values.
Do they reject arch-terrorist Arafat as their leader? No, they embrace him. Do they revolt against Arafat's brutal dictatorial regime? No, they support it. Do they condemn, jail or execute suicide bombers and terrorist murderers? No, they lionize them and hail them as heroes. Do they promote goodwill and understanding towards their Jewish neighbors? No, they preach hatred of Jews in their schools and call in their mosques for genocide of Jews.
Most Palestinians actively or passively support a terrorist regime that is responsible for the injuries and deaths of hundreds of innocent Israelis, and thus have done nothing to deserve freedom and peace. Instead of striving for peace Palestinians have created a terrorist culture of hatred, violence and death. What do they deserve?
Exactly what they have gotten so far: oppression, misery and death.
