NY Times letter 2006 May 16: Money to Terrorists

Money to Terrorists

To the Editor:

Re ''Cold, Hard Cash,'' by Geoff D. Porter (Op-Ed, May 11):

I find it mind-boggling that anyone can continue to think that supporting terrorists will lead to a moderation of terror. The Palestinians were offered a state by Israel's prime minister, Ehud Barak; the answer was terror. Israel has pulled out of Gaza, and the response has been more than 500 Qassam rockets fired into Israel. The Palestinians were given weapons to control terror; those weapons were used in terrorist acts.

I beg the world, for the sake of the lives of my children and all children living in Israel, please do not revert to giving money to terrorists.
