Don't miss even a vague opportunity

Reader comment on item: What Is Israel's Next Move In The New Middle East?

Submitted by Ira Kasper (United States), May 3, 2011 at 10:49

Despite the risks I believe that Israel should come out openly for liberty and democracy throughout the Arab nations, and especially Syria. Although the short term risks are great the long term advantages are also. As a people we have always been in favor of individual rights, and that should be for friends and enemies alike.

It will also put Israel in a better position for future peace with a new Syrian leadership which will definitely come out of this revolution, even if it fail today. Put our principles first and security will follow. Reach out for the hearts and minds of the Syrian youth. That is the only way to eventual peace.
