It's all about INTENTIONS

Reader comment on item: Israel Shuns Victory

Submitted by Peter Feinsteni (United States), Mar 29, 2006 at 12:41

...Anyone believing that land for peace is a viable path to anything other than the destruction of Israel is just kidding him/herself. That's just not on the Palestinian agenda. If Israel INTENDS on remaining a nation-state then somehow, some way it's going to have get up the courage to tell the Palestinians to prepare for their extermination...and then do it. Oh don't be outraged, it's an expression of an emotion and an intention; you've certainly thought it yourself. If you say you haven't, you're deluding yourself and you're lying to others about your false 'egalitarian' views; God knows better how you really are!

It all hinges on INTENTIONS. The Palestinians intentions' have been, for ALL human beings, clarified like no other time in their brief contrived history; their democratic process gives every human being on earth the unequalled opportunity to observe the power of INTENTION. Their vote crystalized their 'policy' and now Israel may, if it wishes, decide how the Palestinian intention fits into Israel's vital national interests. If it isn't a fit, there is no negotiation; you tell the Palestinians, essentially...to go and try to overthrow Jordan, or try to pull their crap in Egypt or Syria. And you tell them that they now have 45 days to find elsewhere to live because in that time, Israel is recanting all previous agreements and either going to kill or forcibly remove every non-Jewish inhabitant...and then do it on the 30th day, not waiting till the 45th day; payback for Yom Kippur's a b--, aint it?

Are you upset? Do you think I'm nuts? I hope you ARE upset; at least you're feeling something. I am not nuts; I am simply making statements (that I don't necessarily support or denigrate) that have INTENTIONS attached to them. The power of INTENTION is what you're witnessing. Intentions when expressed can create quite a bit of discomfort, huh? ...

This isn't to say I advocate any of this, I DON'T. I don't advocate any form of war, however if a peaceloving people (anywhere in the world) finds itself threatened, it must act with all force to eradicate the threat, peroid. There are some who would say to such an Israeli stance, "See, you're no different than the Palestinians.", to which I would respond, "So, you really have known/understood that the Palestinians mean to end Israel and kill as many Jews as possible all this time, but just didn't care?" And then I would remind them that as an Israeli, I have no designs on any country; Israelis seek to secure our borders with the reacquistion of land that we, in error, ceeded away to a popluation of war-mongering, dangerous killers." We are benign in our designs, they are malignant.

Oh well, I guess I could go on...
