How Israel Can Win

Reader comment on item: How Israel Can Win

Submitted by Pastor Jim Scanlon (United States), Apr 4, 2006 at 18:52

I agree that Israel must take a winning attitude in order to bring any semblance of order in the Land of Israel. However, I do not agree with your "peace" assessment.

You state: "Ironically, Israeli success in crushing the Palestinian Arab war morale would be the best thing that ever happened to the Palestinian Arabs. It would mean their finally giving up their foul dream of eliminating their neighbor and would offer a chance instead to focus on their own polity, economy, society, and culture. To become a normal people, one whose parents do not encourage their children to become suicide terrorists, Palestinian Arabs need to undergo the crucible of defeat."

I can see no possibility of the Palestinians giving up their dream of eliminating Israel. They have been pushing that goal for many years, as has all of Islam, and will not change. No matter how many times the armies of the Islamic nations surrounding Israel have been defeated they continue the goal, as promoted by their holy book, to eliminate the Jews and others who will not convert to Islam. The forces of Islam will ultimately be defeated, and eliminated as an enemy of Israel. However, this will not occur until the Lord Jesus Christ brings His final wrath upon the ememies of Jehovah.

Thank you for your continued thought provoking articles.
