Damn those “terrorists”

Murdoch’s little helper, Andrew Bolt – his recent adventures in Iraq surely demand an Order of Australia – offers his review of Spielberg’s “Munich”:

“…There’s never actually been a shortage of Jews or Americans required to die for Israel or the US, or for simply being citizens of the West. Plenty are blown up or shot each year.

“What the West needs is not citizens prepared to die for their countries but, if need be, to kill for them.”

“Terrorists” must be snuffed out, according to Bolt. After all, “sometimes there is no other way to protect the citizens of a democracy than by killing those determined to wipe them out.”

Wonder how Bolt would feel about the father of Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni, labelled a terrorist by the British for belonging to the Jewish underground?
