Don't really agree with this

Reader comment on item: Reading Sharon's Mind

Submitted by Vijay Lad (United Kingdom), Dec 23, 2003 at 08:32

Hello Daniel Pipes and others.
I'm a great fan of your articles and website and have pretty much agreed with all your comment of the situation in general, especially in your defining of Islamists.
However this is the first occassion i don't. You say that Sharon policy is in a way giving up. I understand your reasoning to one extent. However i feel sympathy for the Israeli people. In the UK we see in the news a constant strream of body bags from that region.
What's wrong with separation?,
Don't you think this is the best policy, to do at present? Because from here we can begin the war on peoples minds.

What are palestians going to do they? With out the enemy?
How will they react when the scapegoating(sometimes justified), people aren't around?
I'll tell you what, they are going to have to rebuid their lives, and they'll get infracture. At present they get Aid from the U.N. so they have time to listern to extremists and think of new ways to kill Isrealis. What happens when they have to care of them selves. Will they come up with a new excuse or try and better their lives, I don't know but the present system isn't working.

The most important reason for this action is for the Isreali people , its not fair on them living how they are living. They need a solution NOW they (i'm pretty sure), are sick of the sucide bombing and seeing busy places as possible bombing places. People are getting on with their lives and the amount of hate in the region towads them won't be fixed in a few years, so why not stop the killings now(THe wall), and then we can just focus on stopping the hate and proganda.

From Vijay
Merry christmas, hanika, and a happy new year
