Irfan Hussain

Irfan Hussain is one of Pakistan's top newspaper columnists and his latest piece on occupation, terrorism and counter-terrorism is once again deeply thought provoking.

The point I'd like to make is that even though most would consider Mr Hussain a liberal muslim who is unafraid to take bold positions on many controversial issues, his position on Palestine is very much in line with most progressive and muslim opinion. It strentghens my belief that it is a grave mistake for Americans in particular to simplify the issue in terms of democracy v terrorism.

Palestinian groups should be condemned when they engage in bombing Israeli towns. However the assumption many Americans make is that as the P.L.O was so late in recognising the state of Israel, a peace accord without a solution to the Hamas problem is destined to fail as Palestinians will continue the bombing.

This is a mistake. As the period after the Oslo accords showed, when given the prospect of peace ordinary Palestinians will help their administration in clamping down on the radicals. Most Palestinians are ordinary people who do want peace. Most Isreali's are ordinary people who want peace. To make it happen America needs to be involved as an honest broker.
