CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 4, 2001

THE STRATEGY OF ISRAEL’S ENEMIES SHOULD BE OBVIOUS BY NOW. PALESTINIAN SUICIDE BOMBERS BLOW THEMSELVES UP AND KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE, INCLUDING CHILDREN. ISRAEL PROPERLY RESPONDS BY HITTING PALESTINIAN MILITARY SITES, WHICH ARE FREQUENTLY AND DELIBERATELY HIDDEN AMONG CIVILIANS. WHEN SOME CIVILIANS THEN DIE, WE SEE PARADES OF THE DEAD AND WOUNDED ON AMERICAN TELEVISION. PALESTINIAN OFFICIALS VOW REVENGE AND CALL ON THE UNITED STATES TO RESTRAIN ISRAEL, WHICH IT USUALLY DOES.


MORE THAN TWO-DOZEN CIVILIANS, INCLUDING TEENAGERS, WERE KILLED LAST WEEKEND IN ISRAEL. PRIME MINISTER SHARON PROPERLY RESPONSED BY HITTING ARAFAT’S GAZA HEADQUARTERS, AT A NEWS CONFERENCE YESTERDAY IN JERUSALEM, SHARON SEEMED TO BE MAKING COMMON CAUSE WITH THE UNITED STATES IN ITS BATTLE AGAINST TERROR. HE SHOULD. IT’S ALL THE SAME AND IT COMES FROM THE SAME PLACE AND THE SAME MINDSET.


ISRAEL’S ENEMIES WANT TO WIPE HER OFF THE MAP. THEY’LL NEVER CHANGE. ISRAEL SHOULD MAKE THEM PAY A PRICE AND THE UNITED STATES OUGHT TO BE ENOURAGING THEM TO DO JUST LIKE WE ARE DOING IN AFGHANISTAN. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
