Reader comment on item: George Mitchell's Return to Middle East Diplomacy

Submitted by rodney allsworth (Australia), Jan 25, 2009 at 18:29

albert einstein made the distinction of values to build a credible formula that stood the test of time. these so called peacemakers do not use moral values to work out a lasting formula as they are the new breed of diplomats that insist that all acts are equal according to the values free, guilt fee and morals free system the world seems to be going in. with the concept that those who have some moral values and a sense of good and bad and right and wrong and a yearning for a just peace have to learn to live with those who dont. they seem to insist that others accept evil as good and good as evil and then declare all of it as equal. its not and never will be.

the equality of mankind does not mean all acts are equal it only means all mankind has the right to a peacful life etc, equality does not give anyone the right to fire missiles into another mans country,and it seems that these peacemakers are falling into that trap and trying to make the terrorism of these islamists equal to israeli attempts to halt the indiscriminate firing at their citizens by making israeli actions the equal of the terrorists.

its simply not and never will be, unless we are stupid enough to believe those who for 15 attempts so far tried and failed miserably.
