I agree but...

Reader comment on item: In the MidEast, Bush Dared to Be Different

Submitted by Shlomo ben Avraham Pinhero (United States), Oct 24, 2004 at 23:53

Mr. Pipes,

I agree with your article of the daring, yet provocative to Democrats, leadership accomplishments of President Bush. But I too have certain reservations with the President, which will not sway my vote for Bush in any manner, of his persistant and at times, obsession with creating a Palestianian State. This creation of a Palestinian State will not, as you know, solve the Middle East problem. There is still the problem also with the current Arab-Islamic population in the United States waiting to explode their turmoil on the U.S. citizens and I feel President Bush is not giving this issue a serious thought.

The State Department is another issue, which I cannot believe is not being reeled in by President Bush for its anti-Semitic posturing. It is interesting to observe President Bush show his support for Israel, yet simultaneously distance himself from her when it gets down to the independent survival of Israel ( i.e. defense measures to eliminate terrorists after an incident ).

What is President Bush's political posture or ulterior motive with Israel other than a Democratic Middle East Ally? You can not place a stepping stone upon quick sand and expect to cross over safely without sinking. Creating a Palestinian State will do exactly that; it will sink to its lowest depths with rampaging and turmoil soon to follow. These Arabs have proven themselves by their documented action and inaction to be unworthy at this time in history to be considered for a legitimate state. To even consider giving an Arab Nation a free hand at possessing any land they want, is unreasonable in the common usage and illogical in the rules of cause and effect.
