The reprint from the Cairo, Egypt, Egyptian Gazette printed Oct. 2 accuses the Israelis of the “cold blooded” and “ruthless” killings of Palestinian “activists.”

The Gazette conveniently forgets that the targeted killings are of terrorists who indiscriminately blow up civilians, including innocent babies and schoolchildren.

If a similar article told about U.S. forces eliminating terrorists who participated in Sept. 11 or of beheading civilians, we would feel a sense of justice done. Why are Iraqi terrorists more evil and deserving of elimination than terrorists who kill and maim Israelis? A terrorist is a terrorist regardless of where he operates.
