WAR WEARY OR REALITY STRIKES.

Reader comment on item: Surprising Support for Israel, not Hamas

Submitted by PAUL JEFFERY (Australia), Jul 12, 2014 at 02:12

It seems the Westerners and the media are forming a view that Middle Eastern Islamic societies are all militarised ones , so war and conflict at any level will be a constant.

The Middle East will pushed to the sidelines of by the developed world . This week sees another trigger for more conflict with ISIS obtaining one of the ingredients for a nuclear device. There is now no logical reason to stop Israel from bombing Iran. The West will no doubt stand by and wash their hands of it all. Washing their hands of Palestine , Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Iran. Hamas might want talks and negotiations later on but it will fall on deaf ears.
