Re: [casi] accusation that Iraq gives remuneration to suicide bombers' families

Hello. Glenn here.

A balancing point to make, perhaps, is that the US government gives massive
diplomatic, financial and military support to Israel.

Because of this, Israel can continue its illegal occupation, its killings of
civilians (four or five times the amount of Israeli civilians) its use of
torture, harassment, destroying of homes, schools, ambulances etc.

For supporters of Israeli illegal warfare to express (like Rumsfeld)
indignation that a state may give money to support people who commit
violence, is hypocrisy on an astonishing scale.

All the best,
