47. "Liberal apologists for Dean"
There is nothing wrong with Kerry signing the AIPAC statement condemning Palestinian violence. The issue is not that condemning Palestinian violence is bad, it is that doing so and turning the other cheek to Israeli violence is hypocritical, wrong, and dangerous.

Kerry differs significantly from all others except for Kucinich in calling for parallel concessions - which are the key to lasting peace in the Mid-East. Kerry says that the problem is extremists ON BOTH SIDES. Condemning only Palestinians - especially while giving Israel the helicopters to kill them with - will only continue the vicious circle of death. The only people who benefit are the extremists - both Arafat AND Sharon.

Perhaps someday, under different circumstances, these men can temper their stances and commit to peace. But for now, the violent oppression of innocent Palestinians is no better than violent terrorism against innocent Israelis.
