Patience is No Virtue

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel

Submitted by Barry Black (United States), Jun 5, 2009 at 16:52

While nobody can predict the exact future one can make a pretty good case for a reasonable outcome using past facts. While there are some moderates in Islam who would let Israel be, there are not enough at this point in time. The Law of Sharia demands that Islamic lands always be retained in Islamic hands. This is the basic thinking of the past 60+ years and all actions and rhetoric point to this. Obama is enamored with the Saudi proposal and on the surface appears reasonable, but like that episode from the Twilight Zone, "It's a cook book!"
It's a recipe for the eventual demise of Israel----box in Israel, strengthen the surrounding Arab countries and voila victory and like the Arabs said in 1948 that they have a secret weapon and that is time. They waited long enough for a US president to be more pro Arab and succeeded. And if it takes another 60 years to finalize the final solution----who's counting----the Law of Sharia gives no time limit on victory. Like they say patience is a virtue, but not for Israel.
