Lest we think terror only strikes at Westerners, we have the horrible spectacle of at least 45 dead and 200 wounded in Egypt. This episode is supposedly related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This is why the 'tolerant', 'understanding' approach to terror simply won't work. Is there any end of grievences? How many people do you know, even affluent people, who are satisfied with their lot in life?
It cannot be stated enough, and this is as plain as I can state it: terror is not an acceptable negotiating tactic, anytime, anywhere, for any reason.
