International community promotes terror by embracing Palestinian cause

Alan Dershowitz:
Every time a horrendous terrorist attack victimizes innocent victims, we wring our hands and promise to increase security and take other necessary preventive measures. But we fail to recognize how friends and allies play such an important role in encouraging, incentivizing, and inciting terrorism.

If we are to have any chance of reducing terrorism, we must get to its root cause. It is not poverty, disenfranchisement, despair, or any of the other excuses offered to explain, if not to justify, terrorism as an act of desperation. It is anything but.

Many terrorists, such as those who participated in the Sept. 11 attacks, were educated, well-off, mobile, and even successful. They made a rational cost-benefit decision to murder innocent civilians for one simple reason: They believe that terrorism works.

Tragically, they are right. The international community has rewarded terrorism while punishing those who try to fight it by reasonable means. It all began with a decision by Yasser Arafat and other Palestinian terrorist groups to employ terrorism as a primary means of bringing the Palestinian issue to the forefront of world concern.

Based on the merits and demerits of the Palestinian case, it does not deserve this stature. The treatment of the Tibetans by China, the Kurds by most of the Arab world, and the people of Chechnya by Russia has been at least as bad. But their response to grievances has been largely ignored by the international community and the media because they mostly sought remedies within the law rather than through terrorism.

The Palestinian situation has been different. The hijacking of airplanes, the murders of Olympic athletes at Munich in 1972, the killing of Israeli children at Ma'alot, and the many other terrorist atrocities perpetrated by Palestinian terrorists has elevated their cause above all other causes in the human rights community. Although the Palestinians have not yet gotten a state – because they twice rejected generous offers of statehood – their cause still dominates the United Nations and numerous human rights groups.

Other groups with grievances have learned from the success of Palestinian terrorism and have emulated the use of that barbaric tactic. Even today, when the Palestinian authority claims to reject terrorism, they reward the families of suicide bombers and other terrorists by large compensation packages that increase with the number of innocent victims.

If the perpetrator of the Manchester massacre had been Palestinian, and if the massacre had taken place in an Israeli auditorium, the Palestinian authority would have paid his family a small fortune for murdering so many children.

There is a name for people and organizations that pay other people for killing innocent civilians: it's called accessory to murder....
...
There is more.

The Palestinians are a beggar culture that profits off of its terrorism by getting funding from the UN and other countries including the US.  They would rather wally in poverty than create something besides mass murderers.  Until there is a change in attitude they do not deserve a state nor do they deserve the sympathy they have received from the international community.
