Lessons from the Murders in Gaza

(Ariel Center for Policy Research) Yoram Ettinger - The largest terrorist base in the world has been harbored, coordinated, financed, and incited by the Palestinian Authority/PLO since 1993. The PA/PLO has tolerated/encouraged terrorism, perpetrated by its own "security organizations," Abu-Mazen's and Abu-Ala's Fatah organization, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hizballah, al-Qaeda, Democratic Front, Popular Front, etc. The murder of the three Americans has been the direct result of a 10-year, sustained anti-U.S. incitement campaign, orchestrated by the PA/PLO-controlled education, clergy, and media systems. U.S. taxpayers should stop financing this incitement, as has been the case since 1994, when the U.S. initiated $100M in annual (fungible) foreign aid to the PA/PLO. It is formally channeled via Palestinian NGOs, whose "independence" is identical to that of Iraqi NGOs under Saddam. Egyptian culpability is underscored by Mubarak's tolerance of the smuggling of explosives, missiles, and other military hardware from Sinai into Gaza. The State Department should not constrain Israel into a low-intensity war against terrorism. Israel should implement Powell's Doctrine of disproportional response.
