social-science experiment.

Reader comment on item: "Today Gaza, Tomorrow Jerusalem"

Submitted by Johanna Stephens (United States), Aug 9, 2005 at 11:02

Dear Mr. Pipes,

That is just what this is, a social-science experiment or appeasement to these hostile people. Those people as you clearly state, who want all Israel to just disappear will not stop with this as the Palestinian Arabs will continue to reject Israel's very existence as they have for ever. The answer just might have been to remain strong for the citizens of Israel; taking their lands and handing the property over to Palestinians was and is simply wrong period.

The Palestinians need to build their own country, to mirror the successes they see in Israel. My guess is that they will continue to trash what ever land they have. I am so very sorry this is happening. Appeasement never works.
