Smart (for Mid-East means - unrealizable) ideas

Reader comment on item: How to Turn Gaza Over to Egypt

Submitted by Leonid Kaplun-Leonov (Republic Of Korea), Feb 7, 2008 at 21:19

Please accept my apologies for my broken "Russian" English.

The ideas – how to turn Gaza over to Egypt – are reasonable and logical, and this is exactly why I think they cannot be implemented. First – regarding the Jews. Political correctness, demonstration of their "uniqueness" ("we are Jews!" – read – so incredibly humane!) looks more important to many of them (including their government) than all-round protection of their citizens. Can you imagine British government supplying German cities when Germans bombing Britain? Would you expect German Nazis be less cruel if it was done? This is casting pearls before swine but it does not seem Israelis going to stop supplying Gaza.

The second is Arab/Muslim mood. Refugees are not new to history: Prussian Germans after WWII, my fellow Russians after the USSR collapses. Normally they are quickly included and settled in the countries of blood relatives. But look at Arabs: they keep their blood brothers refugees as dogs on the chain, fostering fury and hate. It is obvious to any neutral observer – they do not need solutions, they do not need Palestinian state, they do not need peace and prosperity. The only thing they need – to kill Jews.

I have been traveling and working to Middle East for years. I know what I am saying.
