Reader comment on item: On Biden in Israel
in response to reader comment: The Visitor

Submitted by Kiel Hesselmann (Denmark), Mar 15, 2010 at 18:24

Appeasement politics are always dangerous. Those who press the Israelis on the disputed borders in Samaria and Judea - not to speak about areas close to the Libanese border and Gaza - are people who wish to eliminate the Jewish presence in the Middle East. You give away one bite for another, and suddenly you have nothing more to give. The bloodthirst of your foes is still with them - the jihadis.

To please Biden or the sloppy PA or the infamous Hamas and Hezbollah is far out. It seems the present Democratic administration in Washington is going to repeat the mistakes the previous presidents - notably the hapless Jimmy Carter - have done in relation to islamists.
Some insists on the Talking Cure. Also called the (ongoing) "Road Map". But the sad true is, that nothing is going to be cured down that road. The Israelis have to fortifie so much of the disputed areas as possible to make a safe haven for themselves. You can't talk the jihadis from hate of the infidels. You have to rely on strength - sadly enough.
