Double Standard For Israel

We were attacked by al Qaeda and have made destroying al Qaeda our main foreign policy goal. Why should Israel not be allowed to destroy Islamic Jihad and Hamas? The only reason they are not is because of us. It's time to take the chains off Israel and let them destroy the organizations that threaten their existence.
In a statement released November 21, Secretary of State Colin Powell condemned the suicide bombing on a bus in Jerusalem and extended his condolences to the Israeli government and to the victims' families.

"There can be no excuse for this despicable attack, and we call on the Palestinians to take immediate and sustained steps to eradicate the infrastructure of terrorism and violence that has wrought such tragic bloodshed," said Powell.
