Peace with Arabs???

Reader comment on item: Israel's Wayward Prime Ministers

Submitted by Bob Hathaway (United States), Jun 29, 2004 at 12:31

Mr. Pipes,
I always enjoy your articles but must comment on this one.
What I would like to see now is a followup article showing how much the U.S. government pressured and blackmailed the Israeli leaders over the years that most likely caused the change in the leaders of Israel.
Anyone with any sense of history of the conflict would know there will never be peace with the Arabs. They don't want peace and have stated so emphatically many times. The only chance for peace is to defeat them again. That's the only thing they understand. With the recent successes by the Israeli forces I expect that Arafat will declare another "hudna" soon so his terrorists can rebuild their forces and appoint new leaders to continue the fight.
