Reader comment on item: Democrats, Republicans, and Israel
in response to reader comment: US-Israel/Iran-Palestine

Harrak would have us believe that the only prop holding the Palestinian wish and action to annihilate Israel is Iran. I am sorry, this is laughable. The Arabs have been at it for 85 years, and counting.

Harrak also assumes that American support is propping up Israel. That is too ridiculous to believe. In 1967, the year of greatest victory any small democratic nation achieved over the inheritors of the Nazi party The USA imposed a unilateral arms embargo on Israel while the Soviets were arming the Arabs to the teeth.

So. Iran, except for that blathering idiot ahmanidijad, is not a factor. America is the only power holding israel back from transferring the Arabs to Jordan, thereby achieving lasting peace. In the end you are right. American support for Israel is the reason the war goes on, but with the opposite outcomes you obviously wish for.
