Reader comment on item: South Sudan, Israel's New Ally

Submitted by Amin Riaz (United Kingdom), Jan 3, 2012 at 21:03

Israel support is as political as ever... it has nothing to do with right and wrong. More where there is anti-Islamic support - grab it.

See Israel on Kosovo:

On 28 April 2009, Arthur Koll, the Israeli ambassador to Serbia, said that though it had been more than a year since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence, Israel had no intention of recognising the declaration, and that "Israel is asked from time to time how solid this decision is, but the fact is that Israel's position has not changed throughout this time. The Serbian people and government should appreciate Israel's position, which also demonstrates the friendship between the two states."

It is easy to decide on Sudan.... one wonders where what happens at "difficult" questions.

Submitting....

Daniel Pipes replies:

Israel, a state still struggling to survive, must mix morality with practicality. And, by the way, which state is not practical? There is no shame in this.
