The Only Good Terrorist Is A Dead Terrorist

The Only Good Terrorist Is A Dead Terrorist: Israel is certainly holding up their end of the ‘War on Terrorism’. About a week and a half ago we heard that the Israel had effectively eradicated the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine[1] in the West Bank…

Israel may have effectively wiped out the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The Israeli army this week arrested another two leaders of the PFLP terror group in the West Bank, according to the Jerusalem Post. A Palestinian Authority official said the Israeli crackdown on the PFLP has virtually destroyed the organization in the West Bank, though its cadres in the Gaza Strip remain intact. The PFLP’s assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi last October, ostensibly in retaliation for Israel’s assassination of PFLP leader Abu Ali Mustafa, marked the beginning of the end for the group, the official said. Since then they have been a constant target of army operations. “Their political and military leadership has been completely wiped out,” the P.A. official told the Post. “In a way, you can say that Sharon has won the war against the PFLP.”

This week, we’re hearing that the Israelis may have done even more damage to Hamas…

“Israeli intelligence officials assert that 98 percent of the known members of the Hamas[2] military wing have been arrested or killed over the past five months, leaving the terrorist organization in a state of disarray, Time magazine reported Monday.

…The magazine quotes the officials as saying that the Israeli military crackdown in the West Bank, which began in April after the suicide bombing on the first night of Pesach that killed 29 people at the Park Hotel in Netanya, has caused severe disruption to the group, making it “no longer possible for cells to organize across different areas.”

Israel had better be careful or they’re going to kill and lock-up so many terrorists that they’ll break that “cycle of violence” the peace activists are so fond of talking about.
