Reader comment on item: [After Sharon:] Israeli Politics Will Revert to Its Past

Submitted by AK (United States), Jan 16, 2006 at 18:47

Dear Mr. Daniel Pipes:

The possibility of the Palestinians accepting Sharon's or any other Israeli peace proposal can best be understood by stating the expression, " the more things change the more they stay the same". Palestinians cannot accept the presence of a Jewish state in the Middle East.

They do in fact desire piece, not peace. First a piece of Jerusalem and the West Bank followed by more terrorism until more and more land again and again is conceded.

One should have learned from Hitler's claim that all he wanted is peace; he took a piece of Austria, a piece of Czechoslovakia, and only when he took a piece of Poland did the blind begin to see that the real threat was not to someone else but to themselves.

The fact is today not only Israel but the non Muslim world faces the threat of Muslim aggression by the use terrorism. The solution does not defy gravity; review the lessons learned and emulate the actions taken by Winston Churchill, the sooner the better.
