A Plan

Reader comment on item: Does Israel Need a [Peace] Plan?

Submitted by Murray Smith (Canada), Mar 6, 2004 at 13:26

A true pleasure to read such logical and lucid material. Might it also be suggested that should Israel give up the 'territories' and leave the Arabs to their own devices, it be made abundantly clear to the neighbourhood that the next time Israel is attacked by hostile armies of whatever country, there will be nothing so simple as the taking of land from aggressors. The answer will be all-out (short of nuclear) war without let-up against whoever starts or joins the fray. Total, absolute defeat will be the reward for such foolishness. Rest assured, given past history and the naivete of the weak left around the world, it will come to that.
I just know that somewhere in that vast wasteland that is the Wahabi mentality there is a remote chance to save themselves waiting for the intelligent minority that exists in every totalitarian society. Would that we could spare them while solving the problem. But then, if the fanatics can't hide behind the innocents, how can they function?

Every success to you.
