Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon
in response to reader comment: What Israel can do ?

Submitted by Ted Belman (Canada), Mar 2, 2010 at 21:50

If appeasement does not work against the Arabs, neither does the path of total war and destruction. In any event, the latter approach is just not feasible for the simple reason that neither America nor Europe will allow such action. And both America and the E.U. have the leverage to enforce a moderate response by Israel. After some 60 years the governing elite in Israel have learned the lesson that there is no military solution. The slow grinding approach of negotiations, with all its frustrations and setbacks wiill in time yield the desired results.
