this is inexcusable. not that any of the other terrorist acts they’ve perpetrated are excusable, but if the palestinians were really willing to give peace a chance, then why send a suicide bomber into israel on the day of powell’s visit? it validates the theories of those who say that they really don’t want coexistence. that they can’t live with israel and would rather destroy them. it validates the military actions of israel. it will be interesting to see what arafat says about this.
