Who Is Speaking Here?
Last week's suicide attacks against innocent civilians in Amman shocked us all. It is unclear what message the suicide bombers were conveying and there is no logical cause justifying such insane acts.No, it's not George Bush!
Muslims and Arabs should not only have better condemned the terrorist acts carried out everywhere around the world, but also should move to isolate the destructive, invented beliefs promoted by a group of insane people and carried out in the name of defending Islam.
Serious action should include preparing plans to cripple these people and their freedom of movement, to impede their receiving shelter, to draw plans to cut them off from their financial sources and to deny them the capabilities to recruit people.
Right. Suicide bombers make us look bad and damamge the cause.
It's remarkable that the criticism of the more violent Palestinian groups from within the Arab world is now harsher than in the European press. I think we are seeing the dawn of a new political age in the ME. I hope it sticks.
