Reader comment on item: Lost Diplomats Just Step on the Gas

Submitted by Yoseph Y. Rosenbaum (United States), May 6, 2002 at 10:09

Your views are in good company. King David in Psalm 120, when speaking about making peace with the Arabs in his day says clearly. "I am peace, but because I speak peace, they want war. The commentaries from hundreds of years ago explain this to mean that because I speak peace it is perceived as weakness and emboldens the other side to war.

I thought you might be interested to know.
