In response to Seth Freedman’s unusually sober, and largely unqualified, condemnation of the terrorist attack in Jerusalem yesterday (Jerusalem bus bomb will harm the Palestinian cause“, CiF March 24) Guardian readers, in relatively large numbers, offered their dissent, many explicitly justifying the intentional killing of Israeli civilians by Palestinian terrorists.
Murder of Israeli civilians justifiable considering Israel’s “ethnic cleansing” of Palestinians.
Such terrorism is “understandable”. Some Palestinians, given their circumstances, will inevitably “just snap”.
We have no right to morally judge such terrorists acts.
Violence, and only violence, is the answer to Israeli “colonization”.
Such “resistance” is justified.
What other choice do Palestinians have other than violence against Israeli civilians?
