Democracies DO move citizens.

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

Submitted by David (United States), Aug 9, 2005 at 11:06

Let me say first that I totally agree with the logic in the article, however, in 1941 OUR democracy moved thousands of Japanese. Democracies DO move its citizens and thus this eviction is not quite as unique a social event. Moving thousands of people of one religous group is something the USA MUST consider in our post 9/11 paradigm. It is unfortunate, true ... and again would not be a unique event.

Regarding the palestinian arabs and this social science experiment ( a term I dislike but will use ) i posit to you that if Israel relocated to Bermuda, the palestinians, arabs and muslims would find a reason to bomb her in the name of islamism.
