War without end

Reader comment on item: How Israel Can Win

Submitted by Rebecca Bynum (United States), Apr 6, 2006 at 07:48

While I agree that Israel must wage a robust war, but I don't share your inclination to think that war will ever actually end and I wonder about your last bullet point about Israel not having to take on the entire Muslim world. I think we will be in a state of endless, permanent conflict unless or until Islam is completely destroyed. Of course I don't see us doing that (at least short-term), but I do see us containing Islam and dealing with the Muslim world as a hostile bloc. I think that has to be step one for American foreign policy - Israel will follow in alignment along with other states as their predicament becomes clearer. We should have been doing everything possible to get Russia and/or China on board - looks like its too late with Russia already. Beware the red (communism) green (Islam) alliance. Perhaps it's inevitable.

I worry about Israel getting thrown to the wolves in the wider conflict. Look what happened to Finland during WWII. That's what I worry about. The pressure will only build on Western leaders to appease Islamic forces and the big piece in their hands is Israel.
