At What Cost, Peace?

Caroline Glick's newest article, "Our World: Legitimizing Abbas" in the Jerusalem Post brings up many interesting points, ones many of us have been asking ourselves and each other. Questions like why should the Israeli government release 500 prisoners (some with blood on their hands -- a line never crossed before this) to shore up Abu Mazen's legitimacy since he was elected be a majority in a legitimate election? Why is this man, who is supposed to be rejecting terror, insisting on freeing murderers? And why is Sharon giving in? Can this really lead to peace? Glick shares that, "Abbas justifies this demand by claiming that these men and women are Palestinian heroes and that his people won't accept their remaining in prison." Well, his people also don't want Jews to live. You know, just like little Johnny next door and Mick Jagger, sometimes you just don't get what you want. Glick brings up why this reasoning is disturbing. For one thing, "it constitutes an Israeli acceptance of the Palestinian claim that the use of terror against Israel is legitimate." And we all know it isn't. Even more alarming is the return to Bethlehem of the deported terrorists who took over the Church of the Nativity for 39 days -- the same ones who raped and terrorized Christian girls, families and businessmen. This gets more scary with every article I read.

The very core of the invented identity of Palestinian Arabs has been undergirded by the terror they've used to advance it, right from the beginning. And the world has always rewarded them for it.

Of everything this has been the most egregious. There is no excuse for letting these terrorist back in the country. The Christian religions of the world should be most disturbed if you as me. These guys were destroying one of their major holy sites. I was outraged by it when they took it over. I can't believe they are back. You have to wonder what they will do next.
