Absolutely right -- There is no moral equivalency here. Is there any credibility to the view that the terrorism would stop (or even abate) if the demands were met? The PA seeks nothing short of the destruction of Israel and a knife in the belly of the infidel (that means us). What Sharon is doing is unfortunate but necessary. He will clean out as many of the terrorist enclaves as he can, keeping Arafat isolated so he cannot coordiante the cover-up. Already there is evidence that the PA was financing and arming terrorism, and now that Arafat is helpless more will surface. This will be dicey for a few more weeks, and then it will end, likely to resume when Arafat regroups.
