Arab Conflict essays

Arab Conflict essays The Nazis used to say openly, 'we use democracy in order to destroy democracy.' Muslim terrorists and their international allies do not hesitate to use democracy in order to destroy it.

Some of them are on trial in our courts. There is always an element of revenge. When you punish a terrorist, you know that his comrades might act...
