Israel's fatigue

Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win

Submitted by Nissim Avraham (Canada), Jul 21, 2006 at 08:57

Isreal's prime minister Olmert thought to have a new approach to the conflict in the Middle East. He made a mistake thinking that as a continue to Sharon's policy he would extend a peacful hand to arabs.

This is not the way of Arab, they look at Israel as weak, since in their mind it is an opportunity to hit Israel once and for all taking what they could not acheive in war. There is no place for such gesture in our area, your enemy is there to stay, and the people of Israel will have to live on it's sword for ever.

The Arab world does not want to change and will never. Thery have one way to go: "backward" and while the state of Israel moves full speed ahead, Arabs moves full speed backward. The best example is Saudi Arabia. 10 years ago their per capita was equal to Israel now it's half Israel's per capita. The only thing one would make of it is that people are stupid not to see it. Could Arab ever be able to inside and see the real reason for their misery? I am sure they will never.
