Reader comment on item: Hold Damascus Responsible [for Hezbollah Violence in Southern Lebanon]

Submitted by Carmen Waggoner (United States), Aug 1, 2006 at 10:25

Again, I must commend Dr. Pipes for his insight and the correctness of his reasoning. His voice is the only meaningful one in the frenzy of lustful nations coveting Lebanon. These nations are blinded by their desire to "own" Lebanon, a nation that appears similar to a carnivorous flower: its head and arms is Hezbollah, the rest is blind drones at the service of its evil despot. I pray that Israel will not fall to the attraction of this Venus Fly Trap; Israel must focus on its inherent strength as it pays close attention to past history, as described by Dr. Pipes.

Thanks to his work, I have a sense of relief and hope that more people, especially leaders, will join the fight against Hezballah, Al Qaeda, and all the other hatemongers, including their insane turban-headed leaders. I also hope the Busch administration will not waver and will maintain its stand, next to Israel, its only true ally; our US leaders must demonstrate constancy and strength; this cannot be achieved by empty talks, double talk from "both sides of the mouth".
