224. Palestinians have hurt their cause
 
 Medhat Credi (Feb. 15) [223] makes a reasoned case for a Palestinian state- up to a point.

 What he fails to mention is that the reason that the creation of such a state has been delayed is because of the barbarous Palestinian suicide bombings of Israeli civilians.
 
 His attack on the Israeli prime minister is also disingenuous, since the massacre in the refugee camp was actually carried out by Christian Lebanese militia outraged at the Palestinian subversion of their once-democratic nation.
