War on [Islamofascism] terror is real, and deserves concern

War on [Islamofascism] terror is real, and deserves concern

December 16, 2007 Editor, the Record:

Take notice, liberals (specifically the few John Edwards supporters out there).

A recent news headline reads: “Thousands in Sudan Call for British Teddy Bear Teacher’s Execution.” In summary, thousands of practitioners of Islam, the “religion of peace,” are calling for the death of an emigrant British teacher for nothing more than naming a teddy bear after Mohammed.

This type of irresponsible behavior may not come as a surprise to most sensible Americans, as they realize the threat of Islamofascism is very real, and if not dealt with, could result in another terrorist attack on our soil. But a key number of liberal politicians actively downplay this threat in an attempt to turn the citizens against the aggressive Bush administration.

Your opinion on the Iraq War is beside the point. Let’s both agree that the war on terror is very real, and not merely a “bumper sticker.”

Palestinians brought problems on themselves

Jacob Amir: Palestinians brought problems on themselves

Dear Editor: The authors of the column “Jews need to speak out on abuse of Palestinians” blame Israel for the difficulties facing the residents of Gaza.

One wonders if the authors can imagine what would have happened if, immediately after Israel left the Gaza Strip, all terror activity from there ceased. Which means no rocket launching, no weapons smuggling, no efforts to bomb the border crossing points, no efforts to send suicide murderers into Israel.

Then all the crossing points would have remained open, there would have been free merchandise exchange, thousands of Gazans would have been able to work in Israel, and it would have been possible to travel between the West Bank and Gaza. The Gazan economy would have been much stronger, and the daily life of the citizens would have been much better.

The authors do not tell us that the Palestinians chose to continue with their war of terror. As a result they brought nothing but disaster on their people. They infiltrated into Israel, killing two soldiers and abducting a third. In the last two years, since Israel left the Gaza Strip to the last inch, more than 2,000 Kasam rockets have been fired at Israeli villages and towns.

Like any other country Israel will do its best to protect its citizens.

Jacob Amir, Jerusalem, Israel
