Reader comment on item: Abba Eban Speaks on Israel's 10th Anniversary

Submitted by Joe Kaffir (United States), May 17, 2008 at 04:35

With reference to comment #2:

I agree that Abba Eban was indeed an an eloquent speaker on par with Churchill. But there the difference ends. Churchill had no illusions about islam. Abba Eban, like so many contemporary Israelis, shared the false vision of peaceful coexistence with their moslem neighbors. This unreality is the greatest threat facing Israel.

Unless islam is modified/reformed or destroyed Israel will never have peace. Churchill was a realist, Abba Eban an idealist.
