Reader comment on item: Palestinians Don't Deserve Additional Aid

Submitted by Mike Nargizian (United States), Dec 21, 2004 at 11:50

There is not a so-called cycle of violence, just a predictable cycle of enabling the problem. The Europeans and UN will always enable the Palis to continue to believe they can destroy Israel without having to really do a thing. Then Israel gets pushed eventually into action and then more and more harshly condemned for it.

This is the cycle of violence. The Europeans and Arabs will of course give more $ to the Palestinians. They, the Europeans, don't know any other thing to do and they believe that its mainly Israel's fault for the conflict and the Palestinian embitterness so they believe this is the answer anyway. That is the legit Euro bureaucrats that there actually are.

Yet the underlying cause of the problem as you state is the Palestinian and Arab world won't/can't accept Israel publically, loudly and fully.

So the game of appearing an inch forward and then deceiving and then "moderating" and then deceiving continues. There will be no motivation to change or seriously challenge it if/unless the Palestinians and Arabs are fully defeated and the Arab states have much to lose for continuing the propping up of their favorite propaganda tool.
