Reader comment on item: Why Hamas['s Electoral Victory] Leaves Me Neutral

Submitted by Ed Katz (United States), Jan 31, 2006 at 12:54

Daniel, I admire those who no matter what happens that is evil, can maintain a positive view; however, I believe you to be a dreamer. Those that do evil things are evil people and, like a leopard, they can not nor will not change their spots.

After 57 years of fighting for Israels security and right to live peacfully, I believe, as a veteran of Korea and the '73 Yom Kippor War, that an offensive war is necessary. For secure borders, Gaza must be retaken, annexed and have all militant Palestinians deported to Egypt. The "good" ones after a period of time may become citizens of Israel.

Hizbollah, the scourge in the north must be wiped out and allow Lebanon the freedom of their own government without interference from Syria.

In order to protect the the unity between Jordan and Israel, all Palestinian militants must be deported from the West Bank not to Jordan, but to Arabia. This area, too, must be annexed. Peaceful Arabs who desire peace, can after some period become citizens of Israel, Those Arabs who decide on peace will enjoy the fanancial benefits.

Iran becomes the problem, not only for Israel, but for the US and the EU.

After all of these problems are achieved, will Israel have peace. In 50 years, for Israel, it will again become a problem.
