Imperical Historical Understanding...

Reader comment on item: Interview: ‘I watch with frustration as the Israelis don't get the point'

Submitted by Lee Stanford (United States), Jun 13, 2006 at 15:57

Thanks Daniel for "getting it' and passing along your wisdom so that others might "get it". Your calling is obviously relating truth even when its not popular and even if it doesn't change any minds. "The truth will (always) set you free". Free of guilt that comes from hiding cures from the "sick", and free of the guilt that comes from not screaming a warning to those that are so very close to impending disaster. Wars (and successful businesses, families...) have never, and will never be won through unclear thinking, wish-washing decisions, slow reactions, and half-hearted action.

All might not agree with you, but that's the result of any argument, true or false. At least we have heard and are responsible for hearing or holding our hands over our ears. Your arguments are based on history, facts and sound thinking. Rare commodities. Thanks for taking a stand!
