CAUSES & EXCUSES
It's always been a pet theory of mine that what people claim are the 'causes' of terrorism are in fact just excuses used by people, who if denied their sacred 'cause,' would easily find another excuse to justify their murderous tendencies.
Frontpage Columnist Josef Joffe looks at Israel's real connection to the 'causes' of Middle Eastern Terrorism in A WORLD WITHOUT ISRAEL.
IRAQ CRITICISM, A NEW VIEW

Now get reading and talk about this among yourselves.
