Israel's enemies don't need nuclear bombs

Reader comment on item: Anti-Semitism Evolves

Submitted by Gilbert Simons (United States), Feb 17, 2005 at 02:45

Dear Daniel:

You speak of nuclear bombs killing 6 million Jews in Israel. The PLO (Abbas) won't need nuclear bombs. If Israel is squeezed into a Cannae in Coastal Israel, which is rapidly taking place, Abbas will only need to borrow a few dozen biologically or chemically-loaded shells, and rain them down from the Judean and Samarian Hills on the Jews of Tel Aviv and other coastal towns, and within 6 hours 6 million Jews will lie prostate (heaven forbid).

This worst case scenario should be recognized by Coastal Israelis who are only too willing to abandon the Jews of Yesha, not realizing that Gaza, Judea and Samaria are the safety belts keeping the enemy from artillery range. The first rule of war is to keep the enemy from artillery range of its population and industrial centers. Sharon has apparently forgotten this fundamental rule, if he ever knew it.
