Root Causes

The column “Pejorative Payouts” was OK, as far as it went, but it doesn’t touch the root cause(s).

  1. The Palestinians must stop teaching their children, from earliest school experience through terrorist acts, to hate/kill Jews.
  2. Mideast nations must stop using Palestinians as a “cistern of hatred against Israel” to divert attention of their respective populations from structural problems in their homelands.

For at least a millennium, the world has used Jews as scapegoats for its problems. Since it seems to work, why should countries stop now? Look no further than the number of U.N. member nations who sign up for every measure condemning Israel to see what I mean.
