Europe's justification for terror

What the U.N. Human Rights Commission did on April 15, 2002 according to the National Post (my emphasis):

Six European Union countries yesterday endorsed a United Nations document that condones violence as a way to achieve Palestinian statehood…Canada and two EU countries — Britain and Germany — opposed the measure, which supports the use of "all available means, including armed struggle" to establish a Palestinian state. Guatemala and the Czech Republic joined the opposing voices, but with 40 countries of the 53-member commission voting yes and seven abstaining, the resolution is now part of the international record… "The failure of the resolution to condemn all acts of terrorism, particularly in the context of recent suicide bombings targeting Israeli civilians, is a serious oversight which renders the resolution fundamentally unacceptable," said Marie Gervais-Vidricaire, Canada's ambassador to the commission. "There can be no justification whatsoever for terrorist acts…." EU members Austria, Belgium, France, Portugal, Spain and Sweden approved the resolution, and Italy abstained.

Notice that date? It's not sufficient that Americans are pissed off enough on Tax Day ... !!

UPDATE: Tammy Bruce has more on Europe's current idiocies, like this doozy from Jacques-off Chirac:

"One may well ask if there isn't today a kind of wish to destroy Lebanon -- its infrastructure, its roads, its communications, its energy, its airport. And for what?"

Meanwhile, the London-based Arabic language newspaper Al-Hayat reports that Israel has issued an ultimatum to Syria: stop Hizbullah’s activity, and bring about release of kidnapped IDF troops.
