An Eye For An Eye

An Eye For An Eye

Dear Editor;

The entire population of Israel is approximately equivalent to half of the population of New York City- four million people. The vexing problem of suicidal fanaticism is becoming abundantly difficult to tolerate.

Egypt and Jordan have condemned the horrific bombing, but in the same breath reiterated that Israel should not retaliate. Shall we sit on our hands?

The perpetual lies of Yasser Arafat and the P.L.O. have become redundant. I have continually pondered and twirled this around in my mind – how to avert the suicide missions. Although, it would probably be considered illegal, I believe a solution would be to incarcerate the immediate family of the suicide bomber.

This might sound crazy, but the second solution would be to retrieve the fragments of the perpetrator’s body and bury it in pigskin. This would probably eschew his ascension to paradise to meet acquiescent virgins.

It is time for President Bush and Colin Powell to stop restraining Israel from taking its own measures to retaliate against this blatant murder of innocent civilians. They know all too well, that you cannot appease terrorists.
