Reader comment on item: Countries Threatened with Extinction

Must take exception with, "Third, this situation places Israel's quandary into perspective. However anomalous the threat of extinction in the world at large, it is banal in the immediate region. Israel's troubles may overwhelmingly be the best known of the group, with hundreds of times more press coverage and books than about the other four countries combined, but all five face a comparable threat."

"Redistricting" into a national extinction, arguably by nomenclature ("irredentism" is the word you used), differs from "genociding" into a national extinction, with force a certainty.
