Wise up

Reader comment on item: Insight into Obama's Middle East Policy?

Submitted by Jay (United States), Jan 1, 2009 at 11:30

Along with the degenerated problems in the Middle East that Dr.Pipes lists,is the added reality that Israel is now surrounded by tens of thousands of missles.From the north is Hezbollah,and in the south is Hamas.

So lets review. Anytime native Israel leaves an area, the area becomes very militarized. And if that isnt bad enough, every time Israel fights back, the combination of the media,the PA,and the anti semetic world body does everything in its power to stop Israeli victory. In lieu of the basic premise that Israel isnt allowed to fight a war, Israel should wise up,and fast.

There should be no Palestinian state. Palestinians should live in small cantons just like they fear .Israel should retain about half the West Bank,and open it to full settlement. Southern Gaza should be retaken,and on any lands not a direct part of Israel,Israel has to have a presence of some type,albiet out of the way.Israel is surrounded by missles,and is not allowed to fight a war.And its not good. And while everyone is keeping Israel busy, Iran is closing in on nuclear weapons.Wise up.
