Thomas Friedman: Suicidal Lies

Let’s be very clear: Palestinians have adopted suicide bombing as a strategic choice, not out of desperation. This threatens all civilization because if suicide bombing is allowed to work in Israel, then, like hijacking and airplane bombing, it will be copied and will eventually lead to a bomber strapped with a nuclear device threatening entire nations. That is why the whole world must see this Palestinian suicide strategy defeated.

I have respect for the desire of the Palestinians not to live under occupation, but I strongly believe that suicide bombing is a tactic that must be repudiated.
