Regarding "Iraq bomber kills 27, most of them children", IHT, July 14, 2005: How can anyone believe that there is a causal connection between poverty, lack of democracy and the plight of the Palestinians on the one hand, and the brutal murder of commuters in London, schoolchildren in Beslan and poor Iraqi children on the other? The only link that I can think of in this context ( and after the murder, in Israel, of three beautiful young women and one lovely grandmother, whose daughter and 3-year-old granddaughter are still fighting for their lives ) is one between a perverted version of religion and blind hatred, absolute evil, a lack of humanity, and contempt for life.
