Writes David Holcberg of the Ayn Rand Institute:



After this week’s suicide bombing on a Jerusalem bus that killed at least sixteen and wounded many more, it is worth asking again: How many more Israelis have to be murdered before President Bush wakes up to the reality that only a total war against Palestinian terrorists will stop these attacks?
 
President Bush should stop acting as if the Israeli government and the Palestinian regime were morally equal. The Israeli government represents a free country, which protects (to a large extent) the individual rights of its citizens, and acts only in self-defense to eliminate the terrorists that threaten its people. The Palestinian regime, in sharp contrast, is a collection of terrorists and supporters of terrorism put together by the father of international terrorism, Yasir Arafat; it’s a regime that has no respect for the individual rights of its own people, and whose main goal is the destruction of Israel.
 
Thus the road map President Bush is trying–and succeeding–to shove down Israel’s throat was doomed to failure from the start. It is past time for President Bush to abandon such misguided moral relativism and choose sides: he is either with Israel or with the terrorists.
