Apparently don't put "Jewish News Weekly of No. CA" in the Zionist camp

Reader comment on item: Conservative pundit argues for 'victory' over Palestinians

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Nov 6, 2007 at 10:55

This is certainly not a puff piece.

I entirely agree with getting tougher with the Palestinians and no negotiations -- Israel gets not a shred of credit for being nice (any more than we do for pulling our punches in Iraq.) Savages understand force, and only force and ensuing suffering might (though I doubt it) convince them it is hopeless.

But the sad fact is, the Palestinian cause is not hopeless. If they are willing to be nothing but ants breeding and fuming for the future of the Palestinian ant hill, and accepting being treated like geopolitical poker chips by their fellow Arab "allies" (and they're in their third generation of all of that), the force of their high birth rates will overwhelm Israel in the decades to come.

I want to quibble with one thought attributed to Dr. Pipes, which I don't think he actually believes.

"He stresses that radical Islam is the problem, while modern Islam is the solution."

Modern Islam IS radical Islam, spread by Wahabi maniacs fueled by Gulf State petrodollars.

Islam is going in exactly the wrong direction, and it is gaining strength in the Moslem world as the secular nationalist/socialist alternative continues losing credibility.
