Reader comment on item: Obama and Israel, Into the Abyss

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Jul 21, 2009 at 12:44

I am often puzzled at the way the State Dept works.

Do they realy believe that by calling their ambassador and asking him to stop settlements or halting building projects, that it will happen. You say naiveté, how much more naive can they be?

We are dealing with a sovereign state hat has all its rights to do as it wishes in its country and here we come to tell them how to behave? Come on! Did Obama ever put himself in their shoes? How would he act if he were them? No, sadly, no one thinks in these terms

We know that all the demands by the Palestininas do not make sense, and this can only srengthen Israel's position not to move an inch. And I will never support any action that goes beyod commo sense.

I say no more concessions. Israel has done enough. Can someone tell me what the Palestinians have offered besides teaching hatred in their schools? Or glorifying their own suicide bombers?

I will stop here.
