Israel is committing suicide

Reader comment on item: [Israel's Gaza Withdrawal:] A Democracy Killing Itself

Submitted by Ralph C Whaley MD (United States), Aug 15, 2005 at 20:33

When the state of Israel was established in 1948 Muslim Arab nations immediately attacked with the openly stated goal to wipe out Israel. It continues today. Israel's response has been sporadic limited military actions interrupted by disastrous concessions. Withdrawing from Gaza is another disastrous concession.

Loving the enemy or compromising with him can not save Israel. Israel's survival requires waging all-out war that destroys both the ability and the will of the enemy to wage war. Israel must rain massive death and destruction on its enemies. Israel has the power but presently lacks the moral confidence to fight with all the ferocity required to destroy the enemy and live in peace. Understanding this will produce the confidence Israel needs to survive and live in peace, prosperity and happiness.
