Reader comment on item: Why Oslo's Hopes Turned to Dust

Submitted by Jeffrey Vaks (United States), Sep 9, 2003 at 17:45

Watching the events in the Middle East I came to the same conclusion that it is only possible to defeat the terrorism and Palestinian goal of destruction of Israel, if Israel uses its full miltary might defending itself. Bowing to the pressure from Europe and US prolongs sufferings on both sides. Similalry, the US has to use its military might dealing with terrorists and the states sponsoring terrorism. Lack of determination to exercise full force sends wrong message and emoldens the sponsors and the terrorists. You might mention that terrorism and the goals of destroying Israel are supported by Saudi Arabia and Iran who are paying for the blood of civilians murdered by the suiciders.
