What Israel Should Do About Terrorism
By David Holcberg (August 21, 2003)
Once again, Hamas and Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for a deadly terrorist bombing in Israel. This time a terrorist attacked a Jerusalem bus, murdering at least twenty and leaving more than a hundred wounded. What should Israel do?
Keep pretending that the "road map" will work? That the terrorists running the Palestinian Authority will get rid of the terrorists in their midst? That dismantling Jewish settlements and releasing Palestinian terrorists from Israeli jails will soothe those who call for the genocide of Jews? That anything short of the total destruction of Israel will be acceptable to the majority of Palestinians?
No. Israel should wake up and face reality! It should stop all negotiations and go after the members and supporters of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and all other terrorist groups operating from among the Palestinian population. Eliminating Palestinian arch terrorist Arafat would be a good start.
