...as there is no comparison between Israel's various and illegal occupations and the US military operating at the behest of both Iraq and Afghanistan. Al Qaeda is not a homegrown resistance group that limits its activity towards the occupier, indeed, the bin Laden led terrorist organization would like to operate all over the world if it could. They, and the Taliban and Iran take great delight in the fact that the US provides cover for Israel to make war on civilians with impunity, a word that Judge Richard Goldstone is highlighting this week that is no doubt causing great gulps of Pepto-Bismal at the US State Department. This fact gives them a great terrorist recruiting tool, to fight against and attack American and Israeli interests. I propose taking away that excuse forever. And all that needs to happen for that much needed change in accountability is for the world to finally force justice to be done for the Palestinians using the rule of law.
