One thought on “‘Exclusion from Schalit deal prompted liar remark’

  1. GregMCuriously absent in your UN settament is any definition of terrorism, thus rather proving my point. Language can be horribly effective in promoting action, especially bad action. As Hitler wrote, All effective propaganda has to limit itself to only a few points and to use them like slogans . By failing to define terrorism, and using it as an empty slogan and contextless category, the UN is effectively promoting its growth and continuation throughout the world.Groups that engage in terror are thus encouraged to follow Clausewitz. Like Clausewitz, modern day terrorists (among the most powerful being the US military and the IDF) think it is the proper method to shorten war. But this shows a contempt for common sense because all of history shows that terrorism stimulates resistance and thus ends by lengthening war.Iraq, Palestine/Israel, Afghanistan come immediately to mind.
