Choose Life

This week's horrifying terrorist attack in Spain shows that we have a long way to go in reducing the threat of terrorism. Let's listen to what Meryl Yourish has to say about this latest atrocity:

Terrorism is terrorism. You cannot excuse the palestinian terror against Israelis and then turn around and condemn the terrorism in Iraq, in Turkey, in Spain, in Kenya. Lebanon is a terrorist training ground. The IRA holds weapons classes for Al Qaeda and other Islamic groups, teaching them how to blow people up more efficiently. The result: ten bombs killing hundreds and wounding thousands during rush hour in Spain.

The world needs to stop thinking that Israel is the problem. Terrorism is the problem. The world has been rewarding terror for decades now. Cut off the funding, cut off the support, shun leaders of states that support terrorism, jail and kill the terrorists. Or suffer your rush hour massacres.

George Bush had it right: You're either with us, or you're with the terrorists. Choose.

Choose life, it's the only choice.
