Reader comment on item: Israel Shuns Victory
in response to reader comment: The hour has come

OK, the mere idea of saying that the West should smash into the Muslim World and force them to our ways is rIdiculous. The fact is, Israel is where it is, the Palestinians are where they are, and the Arabs need to accept that the land was Jewish holy territory centuries before Islam even existed. They own a tiny area of land - Israel is smaller than the state of Connecticut. Israel's people are very sick of being under fire from Palestinians, granted. But a wholesale genocide like you are saying is what is needed is insanity. Do YOU want to go out there and fight it? Such an act by any one nation is impossible. And you'd be sowing the seeds of terror for centuries to come - not to mention the threat of retaliations.

Israel is going to set its own borders. If the Palestinians won't negotiate with that, well they had the chance, if you decided to elect terrorists to govern you that's your problem, and if Hamas wants the best deal in what they get from the Israelis, they need to negotiate with them. They'll never destroy them, so what really is the point of the armed battles?
