Reader comment on item: Zionism's Bleak Present
in response to reader comment: Israel will survive and Israelis have all the right to live in peace

Submitted by Bruce Sterling (United States), Oct 15, 2007 at 16:55

Egyptian Christian writes:

Israel should live in peace and I am sure it will survive all the danger that it faces today,

but Israelis should think of a peaceful solution to the Palestinian problem

Bruce Sterling says:

I agree with the first part of the writer's post and commend him for his optimism, but the second part is wrong. There is only one solution to the Pali-Israeli conflict: Palestinians outgrowing their medieval past and coming of age-meaning overcoming their racism, cultural imperialism and religious intolerance. When Palestinians raise themselves up to Israel's high moral level then and only then will the two peoples live in peace.
