Terrorism

Continued from page 4

Jewish people are called "Is-
raelis" while the Arabs living in
eastern Palestine are called "Jor-
danians."
Few of those now being called
"Palestinians" are descendants
of those that were native to what
was Palestine. Around the turn of
the century, Palestine was a
sparsely-populated, desolate
wasteland of deadly malaria in-
fested swamps and empty barren
deserts — land considered unin-
habitable. It was our Jewish
people who brought that neg-
lected land back to life. Arabs
flocked in to benefit from the
Jewish developments. Now those
Arabs say the land belongs to
them and Jews have no right to
be there.
Most of the "Palestinians" were
created in the United Nations
Arab refugee camps which
America has been supporting for
the past 38 years. When Israel
was reborn in 1948, seven Arab
states proclaimed a "war of ex-
termination" and attacked. Al-
most 6,000 Jews died defending
their land. It ended with 420,000
Arab refugees in the care of a
"temporary" UN agency estab-
lished to resettle them. But any
Arab was accepted as a "refugee."
The UN camps swelled with
Arabs that came for the free foOd,
clothing, housing, medical care
and the education for their chil-
dren — an education that nur-
tured a "Palestinian" identity
and taught hatred and violence.
Over and over again we hear
about the Arab "refugees, those
homeless Palestinians." But
there is not a word of the 800,000
Jews that fled Arab lands, leav-
ing behind all their possessions
and a cultural heritage of 2,000
years. Those Jews from Arab
countries were absorbed by Israel
and they, together with their de-
scendents, are a majority of the
country.
To cover up a fanatic religious
war by the Arab-Moslem world
against the Jewish state, the
identity of Arab-Palestinians was
invented — a people and their
history that never was. That pro-
vided the battle-cry: "Palestine
for the Palestinians" and the ex-
cuse for murderous terrorism.
Hitler used a somewhat similar
tactic as an excuse to destroy
Czechoslovakia just before the
outbreak of World War II. The
Nazi leader demanded "justice"
and "self-determination" for the
oppressed Sudenten Germans
and the return of their area to
Germany, even though it had
never been a part of Germany.
The area included Czechos-
lovakia's defense fortifications.
England's Prime Minister
Neville Chamberlain, for the
sake of "peace-in-our-time," sac-
rificed the Czechs. After taking
over Czechoslovakia, Hitler next
went to work on Poland, using
the pretext of Danzig and their
suffering Germans.
Now Arab extremists have de-
clared war on America because
we are friendly toward Israel.
Not only Libya is involved, but
brutal Iran and Syria as well.
And Saudi Arabia backs Libya
and gives more than $1 billion a
year to Syria, Russia's main

Mideast proxy, to support ter-
rorism, Syrian take-over of
Lebanon and Syrian purchase of
Soviet armaments. And the
Soviets are accomplices of the
terrorists, providing weapons,
training and political support.
What are we going to do about
the state-sponsored terrorist as-
sault on the Western world?
Fight back or give in?
There is a crowd that says,
"Abandon Israel and you will
have peace." If we give in, it
means states can dictate Ameri-
can foreign policy through the
use of terrorism. There will be no
end to it. The whole world will
become like Lebanon, torn with
violence. Nobody will be safe
anywhere. It will tell the world
not to trust or depend on
America. Israel will not agree to
be sacrificed like the Czechs.
We must stop the spread of ter-
rorism. Terrorists must not have
the right to murder as they
please. States must not think
they can safely wage a small-
scale war on America by sponsor-
ing terrorists' attacks on us. Here
are some things we should do:

• If Americans are hit by ter-
rorists, then terrorist training
centers and bases are proper
targets for reprisals. Civilians
must know that they are in a ter-
rorist base at their own risk. It
was reported our authorities
knew very quickly that it was
two Syrian officers who were in-
volved in the terrorist bombing of
the U.S. Marine barracks in
Lebanon, but we did nothing.
That's wrong.
• America should stop support-
ing the UN Arab "refugee"
camps, the source of much of the
violence. Instead, the countries in
which the camps are located
should assume responsibility for
those people.
• America should lead an effort
to change the international rules
of diplomatic privilege. Just re-.
cently, two Libyans were caught
with a bag of hand grenades as
they were about to attack a wed-
ding party in an American offi-
cers club in Turkey. The two ter-
rorists claimed "diplomatic im-
munity." There are frequent re-
ports that the weapons and
bombs used by terrorists enter
countries freely in diplomatic
pouches which are not allowed to
be searched.
• Training and arming the ter-
rorists and the elaborate prep-
arations for their violence re-
quires great sums of money. It is
no secret Saudi Arabia provides
much of that money -- a couple of
hundred millions a year, besides
the several billions to the Syrians
who also support terrorism.
If there is less funding, there
will be less terrorism. If. the
Saudis continue financing ter-
rorism, that means we can not
trust them. The least we can do is
to stop supplying them with
arms. If we don't, some of those
weapons may end up in the hands
of terrorists and be used to kill
Americans. Already American
weapons sold to Saudi Arabia
have been found in the PLO arms
caches in Lebanon.
