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

Again, yes. No argument from me on that.

But they won't do all of what they have to do. A little here, maybe a little there, just to put on a show. It's like a story I heard once about some giant beached fish flapping it's fins ineffectually in the air to give the appearance of seriously charging it's enemy. But the insane wild and sharp horned monster attacking it has no fear of death, and so will never fall for the bluff.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe advised many of the current leadership of Israel ...about everything bad that would happen in Israel at every juncture, and frequently many years prior to it happening, if we capitulated to terror. It has all happend, just as he said. If Israel doesn't listen to someone who showed that he knew 100% what he was talking about, I don't see much hope for the rest of them, especially with people like Dr. Pipes and Sheikh Pallazzi being marginalized or ignored, while CAIR is still lauded as "moderate."

Perhaps if the Left wasn't so strongly opposed to everything necessary to win, just to create the illusion they are taking some moral high road in a desperate attempt to give themselves an air of credibility?

In any case, the bottom line is that in selling Israel down the river they have embraced the goals of their enemies. That being the case, one wonders just what exactly they ARE fighting for. It can't be what they say it is, because that fight is already lost with their surrender. Your guess is as good, or better, than mine.
