Reader comment on item: Israel, U.N. Favorite

Submitted by Edward Goldsmith (United States), Dec 5, 2005 at 18:16

There is something fundamentally wrong with the Jewish mind set, regarding warfare.
When America and it's allies went to war in the 2nd World War against Germany, Japan and Italy, they demanded unconditional surrender. To achieve that goal the U.S.did not hold back in it's total warfare, even when they destroyed whole cities using atomic bombs.

The Israeli army and the politicians cannot function with such determination. After the 6 day war with the Arabs was over, the whole population from many Arab towns where trying to leave for Jordanian territory. The first thing Moshe Dayan did was order the Army to stop them and take them back to their villages. Today there are more Arabs in Israel than ever and their population is growing twice as fast if not more, than the Israeli population. The dream of the Jews having their own country is dwindling fast, and I am very pessimistic about Israel's future.

Is it any wonder that the respect Israel had, from the World, after the 6 day war, is gone? People love winners and hate losers. When Israel is constantly apeasing the Arabs and claiming that they are doing so, because of American pressure, they are just losing all the respect.
