Reader comment on item: Interview: ‘I watch with frustration as the Israelis don't get the point'

Submitted by syeven L (United States), Jun 11, 2006 at 19:27

All the points are well taken.

One of the major issues not discussed in this interview is the counter productive role of Europe and American mass media who systematically bash Israel.

It is very easy for the international media to criticize Israel actions (democratic country) than oblige the Muslim world to abide by the same principles since they (the mass media) do not do anything to even verify what the Muslim do or claim.

When reading reports on the death of Zarkawi, I have the subliminal feeling that some news media (left and liberals) reporters are "pist" at the fact that he was killed.

I concur with Pipes that the Israelis do not get it. They must impose their "will". It means our today civilization.

The western world (human rights) is tying the hands of the Israelis. The Sharia does not recognize human rights.

Human rights must supersede Sharia anywhere and everywhere.
