What we learn from history is, we do not learn from history

Reader comment on item: Mr. Olmert Visits Washington

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), May 16, 2006 at 15:34

As long as Mr. Olmert is dashing about like Neville Chamberlain et al. did in 1938, we will see more trouble in the future. If Prime Minister Olmert honestly concludes that whatever he sanctions will have the effect of shrinking or eradicating the belligerant stand Hamas et al show against Israel, then it is sad to say he is sincerely wrong. As long as a quid pro quo is not on the table, and all that Hamas wants is the eradication of the State of Israel, then we will have to deal with the continuing poisoning of Arabs by Arabs.
