Peace and War

Reader comment on item: Bibliography – My Writings on Modern Warfare

Submitted by Arif Jayish Al Amiriki (United States), Jun 1, 2010 at 05:57

Well other than die sometimes war is the choice. Certainly the case with Israel.

We really need to educate our populace on history, real history and not the indoctrination they receive.
The Israeli claim is as valid as any on earth including ours in America. More so, we had no historic claim to this land. The Muslim and Arab claimed the land by force. The Jews at least bought some of it.

I really think it's time to start starving the educational establishment's rather too generous funding, which has grown at 300% plus of inflation. As forced austerity will be the creed of the age we have begun, bankruptcy is not such a bad thing. They'll also be forced to face reality.

You are right about the Israelis and the West getting a epic FAIL on IO, but it's a question of degree as long as the International Left gets to define the terms. The entire narrative must be refuted.

War is part of the human condition. Israel has as much right to exist as any people. Their enemies refuse peace and make war upon them, so they must defend themselves.
