Reader comment on item: Right wing hardliners gaining ground in Israel

Submitted by henach (United States), Jan 2, 2013 at 20:52

A poll of Israeli Jews shows that the vast majority understands that there is no chance for peace to break out, that neither the Hamas terrorists nor the Fatah terrorists could provide peace (even if they actually wanted peace rather than their obvious desire to eliminate the Jewish state).

Faced with such a situation, the Israeli public is wise to choose self-defense rather than pie in the sky self-delusion.
