No substitute for Victory

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

Submitted by Glenn Klotz (United States), Sep 10, 2003 at 08:30

Wars are either won or lost. As it's been said there is no substitute for Victory. The definition here of Victory is Arab surrender to the unalterable fact of Israel's existence. That said, I doubt it will ever happen in our life time. The Arabs have an almost irrational attitude about land and there cultures "tribal" nature makes this attitude even worse. It's a sobering thought having to fight for centuries to hold onto Israel, but Israelis had better realize this is going to be the time scale involved in this struggle.
