Palestinian Terrorists Are America's Enemies
By David Holcberg (August 28, 2003)
Apologists for terrorism against Israel have claimed that Palestinian terrorists are merely Israel's--not America's--enemies.
But Hamas leader Abdel Aziz Rantisi demonstrated, once again, that this claim is false. "President Bush has become Islam's biggest enemy," he stated last week.
Another terrorist organization, the Palestinian Authority, which President Bush entrusts with carrying out the "road map to peace," has recently broadcasted from the mosques of Gaza the following call: ''Wherever you are, kill those Jews and those Americans who are like them--and those who stand by them. They are all in one trench against the Arabs and the Muslims.'' And just a few months ago Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah exhorted his Palestinians followers "to take suicide bombings worldwide."
It is only a matter of time before Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups will begin to systematically attack Americans--as they have been attacking Israelis. Should America wait until that happens--as America waited for September 11 to happen--before acting against its terrorist enemies?
If we want to win this war with as few American casualties as possible, we must turn our attention to what Palestinian terrorists are really saying and doing. Then we will clearly see that Israel's enemies are America's enemies too--and that by supporting Israel, America would be acting in its own defense.
