The Murder of Palestinian “Collaborators”

IRVINE, CA -- Last week’s little-reported torture and murder of a 35-year-old Palestinian mother of seven, along with the brutal killing of a teenage Palestinian girl, both accused of “collaborating” with Israel, is further reason that the Palestinian leadership must not be negotiated with but destroyed.

A few days after September 11 President Bush vowed to Congress and to the American people that the “war on terror” would not end “until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.”

The United States has already listed the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, which carried
out the executions, as a terrorist organization. “It is time,” said Dr. Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, “to include Yasser Arafat’s Palestinian Authority on that list--and eliminate both.”

“To achieve this, America need not commit its own troops. It need only give its moral sanction to Israel’s right to defend itself.”

Is anybody in the US administration listening?
