All Palestinian Problems Caused by Israelis and the West

Rekha's latest is a lame apologia for the Paletinians. The Palestinians, a people who are suffering through no fault of their own. And who does Rekha choose to highlight as a peaceful victim of this horrible repression...? Why of course... a Palestinian Quaker! (Must... refrain... from... flip... commentary...)

Despite plans to ease some restrictions, Israel maintains not much will change until Palestinian officials rein in terrorists. Palestinian leaders must do everything possible to arrest, prosecute, condemn and subvert terrorists and break up weapons facilities. Whatever the Palestinian leaders' failings, though, it's unreasonable for Israel to exact such a high price from innocent Palestinians.

So... Palistinian leaders must do "everything possible". But if they don't...? Oh, that's okay. It's just them trying to blow us up in busses, pizza shops and blues clubs. No biggie...

Typical Basu piece... no historical context... No mention of how the current intifada began when Arafat rejected an offer that had 95% of the territory the Palistinians were asking for. No critism of Arafat at all. No mention of the fact that the PA, PLO (not to mention Hamas and Islamic Jihad) have never revised thier charters NOT to call for the elimination of the State of Israel.

Victims and opressors... WE would be the opressors... THEY would be the victims. The US should give money to the Palistinian Authority (like any of that would help the average Palestinian!) blahdee, blahdee, blah...
