Terrorism works

News Weekly, June 10, 2006
When a democratic country retreats in the face of terrorism, it motivates terrorists to use the same tactics in other places.

Popular US radio host Rusty Humphries recently went on a fact-finding mission to Israel where he met Palestinian Hamas leaders and Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades terrorists.

He said:

"I thought the civilised world learned its lesson about appeasement from Hitler, but clearly we haven't.

"The terrorists attacked. Israel retreated and gave them the Gaza Strip. Now Hamas has been propelled to power promising to get the Palestinians the West Bank. Rockets are being launched almost daily from Gaza, which has become a terror sanctuary for even America's enemies, including al-Qaida, according to many reports. Attacks are being stepped up in the West Bank, and in response Israel is planning to retreat next from there.

"The message being sent loud and clear is that terrorism works. I've talked with the terrorists. They tell me they won't stop until they get Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and all of Israel. And you know what? I believe them. Why should they stop when Israel responds by giving them more territory?"

Humphries, who is neither Jew nor Muslim, went to Israel unconvinced of the justice of either the Jewish or Arab claim to the land. Now he says:

"I am afraid not just about Israel but also about the rest of the Western world. Terrorists all over will take notice. They will see a democratic country retreating in the face of terrorism and it will teach them that terrorism works. It will motivate the terrorists to use the same tactics in other places – that if just the right amount of terrorism is applied in Iraq and Afghanistan, and eventually worldwide, it will cause the West to retreat."
