Israel's confusion and lack of leadership

Reader comment on item: [Kofi Annan and] Eliminating Israel Politely

Submitted by Jason Hansford (Australia), Mar 4, 2006 at 10:52

If the power and advantage that one wields is not used when faced with adversity, then that power deserves to be assumed by others. If power is taken by others, then it is to acknowledge their better use of it.

If Israel can't and won't determine its stance on its own political agenda. Why should Kofi Annan try and decipher it? Moreover, at least the Palestinian's are clear and steadfast in theirs.

It is up to Israel to force its position and its advantages upon the Arabs and the World. The world stood back, allowing the holocaust to happen, dare we allow this to happen again, the growing world opinion is disturbing.

Israel needs to be ruthless in its political objectives. It could and should, use the very next excuse, to throw all the Arabs into Jordan, Syria or Lebanon. The world will not criticize them more than it already does, and the Arabs won't hate them any more, than they already do. A country can not negotiate its existence with enemies. It fights for it, it imposes it, it claims what is rightfully its possession and makes that clear to its enemies, then crushes them.

The Israelis are the real Palestinians, while the rest are Arabs, the Arabs belong in the surrounding countries. This is clear, so Israel needs to make it so, because anything less is weakness.
