    I have been intimately involved with the Islamic world for nearly 30 years.Haaretz, B'tselem and other left-wingers (especially the Jewish NGOs) are regarded by them with contempt as "useful idiots”. The fundamentalist groups I have had exposure to, are dedicated to the goal of the destruction of Israel. Their every waking moment is devoted to plotting and planning. They are now engaged in a coordinated worldwide endeavor to delegitimize Israel. Their literature talks about the day that the streets will run ankle-deep in Jewish blood. Unfortunately,Harretz is helping that day become more probable ,and closer. My Catholic friends classify the foreseeable consequences of such actions as being a" mortal sin". (They regarded it as murder.) One of the Palestinian heroes frequently quoted as being “peace-loving” by left-wing Jews was personally involved in terrorism. Some years ago, when I interviewed him as part of the Time magazine feature story ,he stated that if you kill one Israeli soldier you have a eliminated one Israeli soldier, but if you kill an Israeli woman, you have eliminated five future Israeli soldiers. It is that it mindset that is, unfortunately, very prevalent in the Islamic world that every Israeli should recognize. All Jewish men, women, and children anywhere in the world are regarded as legitimate targets. Possibly, the Jewish liberal NGOs should focus on bringing this terrorist state of mind and the activities are taken as a result of the state of mind to the attention of the world.
