Reader comment on item: Israel Shuns Victory
in response to reader comment: This is not a war.

Submitted by gary (United States), Apr 1, 2006 at 11:05

first of all, the moslems/arabs arent dictating anything to israel. israel will do whats best for israel. the summit just held by the arab league was a farce. im sure the israeli government doesnt care a lick about what the arab league thinks. its like the tail trying to wag the dog. i think you have the impression that moslems are respected around the world. well, they arent. the only reason anybody even listens to them is because of the oil. take the oil away and they would be shunned by the rest of humanity. and in the end it is israel, not the arabs, who will decide what its borders are and if the arabs dont like it, thats too bad.

second of all, lets get some reality in here. israel will NEVER return to the 1948 borders. they dont have to. the arabs forfeited that land when they were going to 'drive the jews into the sea" in 1967. in my opinion, they should have annexed all of it and pushed the rest of the arabs out. then we would have been able to see how the loving arab nations would take in their palestinean brothers and sisters. and there will never be a right of return to israel proper. that would be suicide for israel and its just never going to happen. and nobody is going to force it on them either, especially the weak arab militaries. the only military prowess they have is getting 15 year olds to blow themselves up in pizza parlors and to most of us in the civilized world, this is an act of ultimate cowardice.

lastly, leave it to a moslem to bring up years and years of terrorism. let me make one observation. the germans and japanese were crushed by the allies in world war 2. after the officials of these countries were replaced, they went on to become 2 of the most economically solvent and progressive nations on earth. you dont hear about german or japanese terrorism now do you. thats because terrorism and murder are engrained parts of islam that decent people would reject out of hand.

thank you
