I love the idea of buying the land and sending the Palestinians off to Egypt and Jordan...but what are the chances.

Reader comment on item: Israel's Strategic Incompetence in Gaza

Submitted by ellie (United States), Jan 31, 2009 at 00:12

Are we on the same page: Hamas is supported by at least Iran.. The goal as I read it is from what the Iranian leader was interpreted as having said this week was: We do not intend to distroy Isreal but to allow it to die...to that end.....Palestinians incite Israel and dramatize the retalliation to arouse world sympathy for their cause and hatred ... Its a game..and they don't sweat it because they have taught no respect for Palestinian lives. The game is world sympathy, hate to the aggressor Israel and its supporter america....The Iranian leader seemed clearly to be saying: the end goal, Israel will die by itself.... and become Palestine and everyone will live happily ever after. (ofcasue if they believed that they would not be working so hard to bring Israel down.

So, the goal clearly does not seem to be peace....this war has been going on from the day Isreal announced statehood......then what is your answer. Can they fight Iran..and attacks from other Arab countries?

One thing I believe that those who see the danger of Iran to Israel are focused mostly on war. Hamas and his supporters have taken over the strategic thinking. They incite the victimization and then stage the "holocust" by the NaziJews. I agree, the thinkers, the strategists are no longer focused. They have fought hard..and perhaps they are tired. In Defiant when the leader faltered, the younger brother stepped in and problem solved.. Perhaps they need our help. Perhaps we can open a dialogue of options and ......

but I so admit the best would be...if they took the money and ran......but then.....wasn't the reason they were left to rot by the Arab countries after they lost the first war.....to create angry impoverished people...for PR. One Arab commentator laughed to me recently...."well anyway Israel is losing the PR war in America". .

Submitting....
