The end of terrorists? When we r die.
or maybe sooner if we stop supporting terror with our media.

The night before Boston we were talking to brother B. His house, in Baghdad, had electricity and none of the family were hurt in yesterday’s or today’s bombings. It was a good day, and he told us about the lady next door.
B was on the way home from the store. He passed his next door neighbor and they stopped to chat. After she congratulated him on his recent surgery he asked her how her children were doing in the U.S.
She is a retired lawyer in her 70’s with a daughter and son in the U.S. She’s always been very protective of her children. The kind of protection where when the children took 100 in the exams she would say they took 90’s so there would be no jealousy aimed at them. It was very hard for her to see her children leave Iraq.
“They are fine, Inshallah. But their safety is important. I thought as long as they are safe and happy…so I let them leave. But now I feel they are threatened there because Korea is about to bomb America.” A reassured her.
“America is a safe place, don’t worry.”
That same night, before Boston, we chatted with A, in Smawa, who posted, “It was close. The bomb, but I am OK.”
“Happy you are OK. When will it all end?”
“When we r die.”
And today the TV is an endless loop of terrorist propaganda. It is just what the bombers want. The publicity makes them feel strong. The terror that is induced by the repetitions magnifies the effect of their murder and maiming.
We support terror with our insensitive, profit-driven media.
