Forest for the trees in Israel

Reader comment on item: May an American Comment on Israel?

Submitted by Andrew (United States), Jul 28, 2008 at 16:15

One related point you didn't mention, Daniel. Sometimes, one can be so close to...whatever...that he misses the proverbial forest for the trees. Such is the case with Schweitzer. Not just in the granting of a perceived victory for Hizbullah with Kuntar's release. But how many Israelis will die or be maimed, due to some of the released prisoners trying yet again for "martyrdom?!" How many more IDF members will be kidnapped because the bad guys perceive how far Israel will go? And what incentive does Hizbullah have to keep kidnapped IDF members alive? Israel will pay an exhorbitant price for the return of corpses.

This entire incident was appalling. Those who engineered Entebbe must be sickened.

Keep writing the truth as you see it, sir. Maybe at least some eyes will be opened in Israel.
