Israel's current government too weak willed

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

Submitted by Earl Lulloff (United States), Aug 3, 2006 at 23:21

The current government of Israel, in spite of its actions in Lebanon, is too weak willed to try to pressure Syria by force. It's whole purpose at election was to unilaterally withdraw from Samaria and Galliee (the so-called West Bank) and give it to the Hamas (a terrorist organization) controlled government of the Palestinian Authority (itself a supporter of and partaker in terrorism) in the hope that this would make the terrorists stop arracking israel. Appeasement works well -- for the agressor. See Chamberlain -- Peace in our time -- World War Two for a preview of how well apeasment works for democratic states.

Hezballah, Hamas, Fatah, Iran, all have one goal concerning Israel. Complete destruction, hopefully with every Jew dead, and its replacement with an Arab Islamist state like Iran.

In the long run Israel has three choices: Victory, destruction as a state; and/or the Mediterrean Sea. The current government does NOT want to see those choices.
