Who's a terrorist?

July 31, 2007

Re "In Mideast, Blair debuts as an envoy," July 24

The Times mentions that Mideast envoy Tony Blair had a suite at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, which was bombed in 1946 by "Jewish saboteurs" in their campaign to drive out the British. I find it interesting that Jewish bombers are granted such a romantic appellation while Arabs who adopt similar behavior are labeled terrorists. Perpetrators of violent acts should be condemned across the board and referred to in similar terms, whether they are Jewish or Arab.
