A View From The Right

Reader comment on item: Assessing Kadima

Submitted by Seamus MacNemi (United States), Dec 26, 2005 at 17:53

As a long time friend and supporter of Likkud and the Israeli right I must express my very serious objections to the present course that the Sharon Government is taking on. I can see only disaster in the continuous efforts to placate the Palestinians with more give aways of land that was hard won with Jewish lives. The Palestinians have not abandoned their ideal of the destruction of Israel and the future of such a course I see as bleak indeed not only for Israelis but as well for the entire Jewish community world wide. The Palestinians, by themselves, are not capable of creating a viable nation in any sense as they have demonstrated time and again with the squandering of the resources that have been provided to them in the past.

They have had ample opportunity to prove themselves and they could, with Israels help, achieve their dream of solid nation hood. But without Isreal they will devolve back into the medieval tribalism that has characterized their existence since time imemorial. Vendetta and clan warfare are more the norm than the exception amongst them and their primitive notions of honor and sexual purity will result in more murders of young women as the west becomes more and more of a factor in their lives. They cannot live in isolation as a purely Islamic society and expect to do business on an international scale which is what is necessary if they are to survive as a nation.

Sharon's cave in to the Palestinian terrorists bodes ill for all concerned, the Palestianians included.
