Zero Tolerance

Reader comment on item: My Peace Plan: An Israeli Victory

Submitted by bob stogdill (United States), May 4, 2010 at 20:07

How about a middle of the road approach to victory. Inform the enemy that you are going to begin a Zero Tolerance Policy to offensive actions such as missiles, or rockets being shot into Israel. This would be implemented by permanently taking any land from which they are fired, or from which aggressive actions originate. When they quit aggressive actions, Israel will stop taking land away from their enemies. Then, don't give the land back!! You won it, you gave fair warning, and now it is yours!

It seems that would eventually give Israel all the Land Scripture has promised, or give you Peace from your enemies. In thinking of this, what did the early settlers in America do when aggressive actions were directed toward them by the American Indians? They took their land! Have they given it back? Not in over 200 years. So there is a precedent that is hard to argue with unless America would like to restore American Land to the Indians: and, While they are at it, give Texas and New Mexico back to the Mexicans.
