You must have been watching too many blown-up busses.

Reader comment on item: Israel is Winning

Submitted by Moishe Sachs (United States), Aug 8, 2002 at 23:10

You state, "In brief, terrorism is not working. It takes a toll on the Palestinians without having the intended effect on Israel. Barring a major change, the Palestinians will wear themselves out fairly soon, probably by the year's end."

Israel's economy is devastated.

Tens of thousands are jobless. They have 5, 10, 15 kids. Industries are destroyed. Ten times the WTC per capita in Israel are dead just in less than two years.

Israel is terrorized. Tens of thousands are maimed, shredded, horribly burnt, physically devastated beyond what anyone should ever know.

Israel's deplorable political system leaves the population powerless to dismiss the inept, Jewishly ignorant, power-loving mixed multitude Cabinet consisting of 40 members of the k'nesset or to replace it with decent leadership.

Excepting the arrival of the Messiah or a miraculous Yamin Israel Party victory for revolutionary change in Israel's untenable political system, Israel is doomed.

Perhaps seeing only the charred busses and not the human pulp after terror strikes is a victory for the media in its war against the Jews.

My highest regards,
