Reader comment on item: How Israel Can Win

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Apr 4, 2006 at 15:38

It is good to see Mr. Pipes has the wit to say, at least to these eyes, that victory is the acceptable policy for the survival of the Israeli nation-state.

Even before 1948, a very honourable goal was peaceful co-existence amongst those in the Mid East, regardless of the faith tradition they adhere to. So, how do we get to that goal from where we are?

I'd like people to try this on for size: Israel gets neighbours that do not have it in for Israel. This involves replacing the portion of the top echelon of Israel's neighbours who prefer destruction with those who want to get along with Israel.

That way, progress can be made in the spreading of the light of liberty to those who have been in metaphysical darkness for far too long.
