Chaos Doesn't Work?

Reader comment on item: The War on Campus

Submitted by Ron Edge (United States), May 2, 2010 at 16:20

It's been over 91/2 years since Mr. Hasson wrote his Comment. Others also led, and echoed, him. What do you think of the relative strengths of the Palestinian and Israeli causes today? May 2, 2010... Their "Cause", which has as its core goal/value the complete destruction of Israel as a State with the, concomitant, murdering of as many Israelis as possible and the enslavement (Dhimmi-tude) of the rest, has been so successful that the USA has elected a faux-Muslim as President (so eager were we to reject the "realism" of Neo-Con "rule"); Great Britain, along with other EU members, has provided a venue for Sharia Law which will take precedence over English Common Law (which was the springboard for the Magna Carta (philosophically, at any rate); (misguidedly) The USA and Coalition Partners, are losing one war; about to leave another theater, after spending so much treasure and blood, in the hands of puppets of our, now, most threatening enemy and, NOT finally, we are disenfranchising the only REAL partner in the War on Terror (take THAT, Mr. President) in favor of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iran (and their surrogates: Hamas, PLO, Fatah), et al.......whew.... And those who always "reject" murder as a legitimate political strategy can still find justification(s), and peace of mind, in supporting those who DO find such activities as eminently preferable AND imminently occurring on a grand scale here in the West. My Dear Young Sir and Madam: "It" has, is and will "work" as long as the alternative is considered to be reprehensible (to we in the West: NOT our enemies)... Because appeasing these people is only encouraging them to demand more. You're not so "young", tho, are you? Is "It" such a conundrum? What must be done to, not only to these enemies but the others also.....AND, just as important, to their children? Of course you know. And, if we don't, collectively, find a Leader whom we'll trust to do "It"....."IT" will be, as is occurring as I write this missive, done to us....and OUR children. I'm old, now. And will, willing or not, will soon leave you to your problem(s). I'll leave you with this: When the "Unbeatable, or Unrestrained Force" meets-up with the "Unmovable or Too High and too Wide to Avoid Object".... SOMETHING'S gotta' give. In your case, it's either their goals/aims (NOT going to happen because, to THEM, those "goals/aims" are living / breathing) or your first, Views of yourselves. And, second: your Democracy (for years, at least...).
