It didn't work with Hitler and it won't work with islam

Reader comment on item: An Israeli Apology to Turkey

Submitted by Doug Mayfield (United States), Mar 23, 2013 at 12:28

Apologies to tyrants don't work. The free world's handling of Adolph Hitler in the 1930s clearly demonstrated that. Islam is a totalitarian ideology whose followers commit rape, murder, atrocities around the world on a daily basis to enslave or eliminate anyone who disagrees with them.

All apologies to tyrants only embolden those tyrants,. I have respect for Netanyahu, but in my view he made a serious error by making this apology. And that error, and the refusal to act on principle which it reveals, may well cost Israel in the future.
