Yes Yoav, ken, please tell us more of this great success

Reader comment on item: Assessing the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty, Thirty Years Later
in response to reader comment: And yet

Submitted by jaames burke (Canada), Mar 27, 2009 at 07:53

Here is what I can tell you - the Yom Kippur war began because the Israeli govt at the time ( Golda Meir and long lefty Dayan) chose to ignore the evidence and allow Egypt et al to strike the first blow. They were worried about losing world support.

The lives of the Israeli soldiers to be killed or maimed were not on their minds.

It is a rumour that Golda had poison prepared for her if Jerusalem will be invaded by Arab soldiers intent on killing her.

Unfortunately it was not given to her by error with a shot of whiskey.

Please give us facts on this great success. Both financial and spiritual.

I say that the lives you claim were saved by this folly would never be at risk if the the edges of the Sinai were treated as a militarized " no mans land" equipped with thousands of sensors.
