We are unfair with Israel...

Reader comment on item: "[Symposium] On the Strip: Where To Go from Gaza?"

Submitted by Marc Bellm (United States), Jun 29, 2006 at 20:14

Our foreign policy toward Israel is utterly unfair. We continually tie their hands in response to terrorism acts which have never been seen here, while our government takes the right to do anything and everything in order to respond toward any acts of terror against us. Does this bias need anymore proof or clairty?

We lose thousands in one september 11th attack, we invade two separate countries and wage a contiunal fight. When Israel is victimized in some sub-human horrific attack, we DEMAND they "negotiate," and "show restraint." Try and tell our current administration to respond in the same manner and watch and see the response.

We need to allow Israel the SAME RIGHTS that we ourselves take in order to insure domestic safety. I believe that if Israel was able to ensure its safety in the same manner we do, the terrorist and Islamic murderers would be held at bay, and the rightful nation of Israel would live in relative peace, as we do, inspite of the constant threats from these criminals.
