Reader comment on item: Israel Shuns Victory

Submitted by ralph shapiro (Canada), Mar 28, 2006 at 13:59

I totally agree. War is hell but bleeding for a long time is purgatory.

Israel must gather up the political courage to understand that this is a fight to death to the end, or else it will either lose or bleed away, way more than necessary.

Was it not General Grant in the American Civil War who not only said the same but did it and the war ended sooner and in the end with fewer lives lost on all sides.

When the Cossaks raided jewish villages, some jewish villagers met them at the train station with farm implements in their hands. they knew if they got off that train they would be crushed. that stopped them from getting off.

so what did they do? they went to the next village which cowered in the shul and well you know the rest of the story.
