Reader comment on item: What Is Israel's Next Move In The New Middle East?

Submitted by Jules Posten (United States), May 5, 2011 at 19:15

the biggest problem that Israel faces is that whatever their path, whatever they say or do, it makes no difference at all. because Israel will be considered completely wrong, no matter what they do. you have an independent state that world constantly berates and villifies whenever it seeks to defend its citizens from the cowardly assaults from rockets fired at them. when they suffer physical attacks from sneak raids into its border territory designed to kill and maim civiilian targets or kidnap attempts on their soliders,.

the world wags itscollective finger and demands that Israel show restraint in answering these provocations. the constant claim is that somehow these terror attacks are on parity with Israels defensive responses. this Alice in Wonderland attitude has been the norm for far too long. will this lunacy ever end? that is a question that cannot be answered by mere mortals.the answer can only come from a much higher authority.
