Jay, you hit the nail on the head, so to speak. It's all about actions, consequences and responsibility. Look at many youths today. They don't want to take responsibility for their actions and when they reach adulthood will have serious reality check.Likewise, it seems the Palestinians and many of the Arab govts and militants seem to think that their actions have no consequences, and they certainly are refusing to take responsibility for their bad behavior. The Palestinians started their foolish Intefadehs, for instance, but refuse to take responsibility for the consequences. Instead, they get human rights organzations which are nothing of the sort, to declare Israel's responses to be actions of Apartheid, and placing no responsibility on the heads of the Palestinians who started the violence. Childish and a shanghaiing of UN organizations....what an apostasy.
