Suicide Bombers Kill Innocents- No Justification

Dennis Prager discusses the Palestinian contribution to the world: Suicide Bombers. Prager also believes that the world's Left has been enablers through their justification for the killing of innocents. The Left's logic goes as follows:

According to the world's Left, it's OK for Palestinians to put bombs in an Israeli student cafeteria because:

1. Israel occupies Palestinian land (even though a leftist Israeli government offered 97 percent of it to Yasser Arafat)

2. Therefore, Palestinians are engaging in legitimate resistance

3. Since Palestinians don't have sophisticated weaponry, they use their weapon, the suicide bomber

4. Israelis kill Palestinian civilians, so there is a moral equivalence between Israel and the Palestinians (even though the Palestinians target Jewish innocents and the Israelis do not target Palestinian innocents)

But, alas, the anti-Israel Left (an almost redundant description), too, did not understand the genie it had helped unleash onto the world. Why is it all right for Muslims to blow up Israeli children, but not Russian children? Israeli buses, but not British buses? Jews in Israel, but not Muslims in Iraq?

Even during my decades as a liberal, I could never buy this logic. It reminds me of the case against guns as stated by gun control advocates. But, again, even as a liberal, I recognized that it was the shooter, not the gun, who was guilty of crimes. Here, it is the bomber that is guilty.
