Gaza under Egyptian control delays the eventual outcome..

Reader comment on item: Solving the "Palestinian Problem" [with the No-State Solution]

Submitted by kman (United States), Jan 9, 2009 at 21:00

With the incereasing Islamification of Europe, the control of Islam is becoming more dominant everywhere. They work hard here in the U.S. and Canada. The reports of world western leaders packing around Qurans, hardly gives me much more hope in giving Egypt control of the Gaza Strip. Mubarak's hold against the radical element in his country is a gradually slipping its grip as steps there by militant Islam follow behind Iran's history a few decades ago.

I think it is unrealistic to expect Egypt to hold any kind of control over Hamas and any other terrorist entity in Gaza. The level of hatred is inexhaustible. I hate the numbers of civlian casualties, but Islam is never going to learn anything from any kind of compromise that involves anything less than a military confrontation like Israel is using now. Hamas must be driven into the ground despite any civilian costs as the civilians seem unwilling to confront their internal problem themselves.

The rest of the Muslim community seems to be unconcerned, so far, about casualties by anyone. I think costs are going to have to be felt by the Arab world as a result of their own thinly disguised governmental backing of terrorist organizations.

The growing power and vehemence of radical Islam needs to be dealt some kind of fatal blow that will dispirit them. Compromise, treaties, and shifting governmental control has no long term effects against the viral hatred of Islam against anything non-Islam.

Islam must face some terrible costs that it has already foisted upon the rest of our planetary inhabitants.

I back a military response against the "religion"of Islam as that is their eventual tactic against the rest of mankind. I back this kind of "solution" because I know the vast majority of the human race has no other plan that will work against a militantly backed religion. If you expect a non-religious response to work against Islam, I think you are putting unrealistic hopes on the dream world.

I realize most of humanity puts little real value in any religion. That's fine as long as the "world" doesn't expect to prevail against a religion backed by hatreds carefully fostered (by one means or another) for decades and centuries. Pent up frustrations over poverty undealt with for generations and all that it encompasses (hate, rage, crime, etc.) is given release orchestrated by Islam. If the wealthy countries of the planet refuse to deal with poverty and repression, then it will be dealt with by Islam in the only way it really espouses to deal with it.

Dealing with all the horror of the impoverished peoples of the globe calls for the drive of "religious" fervor, or whatever you prefer to call it, as eventual solutions. The politics, rock bands, Gates, and Angelina Jolies of the world provide band-aid and photo-op responses with no real conviction or sacrifice. The level of rage, frustration, and injustice prevailing in the Africkan and Oriental continents call for drastic efforts that only come from religiously backed purpose.

I know I'm wasting my time, as man cares little for dealing with the less advantaged in any way that will defeat the "emotional vent" approach of Islam. We can take our pick of two choices - Islam, or the "religion" of heart felt love of the other "religion" by those who have more than token belief in it. That requires a much larger numbers base than is currently enjoyed. But, that is inevitable knowing the inner nature of mankind which leaves only the "other" inevitability.
