My Mideast Punchlines: losers ….

Under the Jerusalem Post headline: ‘Terrorism persists because it works,’ lawyer Alan Dershowitz  says it works because, among other things, the UN glorifies terrorism by placing countries that support terrorism in high positions of authority and honour and by welcoming with open arms the promoters of terrorism.

While agreeing with everything Dershowitz writes, he misses one salient point, a point made clear by President Trump during his Middle East tour. The terrorists are indeed ‘losers’. Yes, terrorism may succeed – but only in promoting more terrorism. What terrorism has never succeeded in doing is to overturn the status quo in order to achieve its ultimate goal . Think the IRA; think ETA; think Chechnya; think the Palestinians. The list is endless.
