Another Attack: Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip have attacked an American convoy carrying U.S. diplomats. After years of targeting innocent Israelis while the U.S. restricted Israel's retaliations, Palestinians are now targeting Americans, too.

This shouldn't be a huge surprise, considering that it was the Palestinians who were cheering and dancing in the streets in celebration of the 9/11 attacks.

So will the U.S. grant Israel its right to attack terrorists? I suspect that Bush will still call for Israeli "restraint". It seems Bush is trying to take other Middle Eastern governments' concerns into consideration. This makes sense, considering we'll need their help in smoking out terrorist organizations in the region. But to ask Israel to show restraint against its terrorist threat seems hypocritical, and simply wrong.

And incidents like these add to my frustration over liberals who call Bush a Nazi and throw their support behind Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein, claiming that they're being innocently attacked by Israel and the United States. Arafat is a terrorist and Hussein is a murderous dictator. Is this really who you want to support?
