Title A non-violent moment - response to "terrorism in America"
Abstract/Summary This article, like so many others, demonstrates that the "War on Terrorism", the "War in Iraq" and the United States tacit support for Israeli violation of Palestinian human rights are having exactly the opposite effects to those intended. Far from generating more security against terrorist politics and attack, these policies are delivering more insecurity for the West, (particularly the members of the Coalition of the Willing). Instead of "draining the pools within which terrorists swim", these pools have become very large lakes for the politically desperate. Far from delivering democracy, human rights and a bright economic future to a post-Saddam Iraq, the Interim Authority in Iraq has delivered higher levels of discontent, given cover to profound Western violations of Moslem human rights, and opened up some extremely deep and bitter internal fissures and divisions.
