It is inconceivable that after 25 Israeli citizens have been murdered and hundreds wounded in terrorist attacks by Palestinian and Israeli Arabs that there is no outcry from the international community ("Jerusalem's nightmare," Oct. 17).
Instead, the press in most parts of the European Union, and particularly in Great Britain, has indicated that such attacks are justifiable resistance.
Unfortunately our own government has been ambivalent in condemning these attacks by failing to mention, except on rare occasions, that the attackers are Muslims and that the terror is being perpetrated in the name of Islam.
Terror is terror whether it be in France, Mali, Somalia, Yemen, the U.S. or Israel.
