Reader comment on item: The Road to Damascus

Submitted by E. Wolf (United States), Nov 27, 2002 at 11:47

This article is making its rounds on the internet these days, obviously, due to the upcoming elections. The indecision to choose Sharon v Netanyahu is LOUD!

Those in the right of Likud want Bibi, since his position is "no Palestinian state". Though, we've heard and seen what he's capable of promising and not delivering, i.e., returning Hebron and, as your article states, negotiating giving away land to Syria. Thus, his ability to guarantee security is very questionable.

On the other hand, Sharon has done absolutely nothing. Either he can't, doesn't want to or is playing politics, which leaves us frustrated. He, also, is speaking "pro a Palestinian state". His politics have not brought security and his insistence upon a unity coalition is ridiculous and doesn't help to accomplish anything! We are sitting ducks, here in Israel.

Much talk about "forgiving" Bibi for his past transgressions, and that he is THE ONE who can bring this country out of the economic slump and re-establish security.

Is it a matter of choosing the best of two evils?, as many are saying.

Can you please do an updated article on the two...perhaps your insight would be helpful to those who have the right to vote in the upcoming Likud and/or Israeli elections.

Love reading your work. Thanks for constantly keeping us informed and seeing things as they are and not "through rose colored glasses", as many prefer to do.
