Why Does the International Community Accept Palestinian Terrorism?

(National Review) Saul Singer - Palestinian terrorism will stop when the international community decides to hold the Palestinian leadership fully accountable for its aggression and to vocally support Israel's right to self-defense. A UN resolution unequivocally condemning Palestinian terrorism and affirming Israel's rights under Article 51 of the UN Charter, followed if necessary by the threat of sanctions, would induce the Palestinians to advance their interests by other means. In addition, the U.S. and Israel should not just speak of the need for two states, Israel and Palestine, but of the true obstacle to implementing that vision: the continuing Arab refusal to accept a Jewish state in this land. If the Arab states truly accepted the two-state solution, why did they recently fight tooth and nail against welcoming Israel and Palestine into the International Committee of the Red Cross? Why do they foment boycotts and rabid anti-Semitism? And why does the international community accept such behavior without comment?
