Reader comment on item: Hold Damascus Responsible [for Hezbollah Violence in Southern Lebanon]
in response to reader comment: A few basic points and a suggestion

Submitted by Anubhav Singh (India), Sep 4, 2006 at 00:26

Pakistan was created against the wishes of majority of India. Bangladesh was created against the wishes of majority of Pakistan. USA was formed against wishes of Red Indians and later gained independence against wishes of Britain. Most of muslim states in ME were formed against the wishes of many in Turkey. As far as I know, concentrated efforts by Jewish ppl to move to Israel started much before Hitler. Palestinian actions do not seem like a 'freedom struggle'. India struggled for 100 yrs. and it was in steps. first we started taking part in local elections and parliament and so on.

Palestinian and Hizbollah actions are something like we firing rockets at Brits when they were in the process of leaving India. or like Americans abducting British, after USA became USA. that whole region is indeed complex, but the most important source of violence in Islamic supremacist mindset. as far as Israel atrocities are concerned, they are like angels compared to what British were in India. How many terrorists do u think India produced in its freedom struggle? or how many Tibetans under Dalai Lama have resorted to terrorism against China? it will be myopic to ignore the fact that Jews lived in Israel since 4000 yrs.

Today's Israel has come out of nothing to be a first world nation. its absurd to negate its existence because Palestinians want its destruction.
