Returning to the point where Israel detoured

Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jul 18, 2006 at 11:20

Two things: not that long ago, David Frum in his blog related a piece that shows there are alternatives to the current "negotiating" partners that Israel has. So, why not deal with those who do not want to push Israel into the sea.

Second, it is time for all who built their lives on being accountable for their actions to defend Israel. Not just with military materiel, but also words. For, like it or not, Israel has been far more productive with its time since 1948 than the Arabs who still conclude that plotting and subversive actions are what Arab culture is built upon. For, how else, other than jealousy can you explain the seemingly predisposition of so many to send homicide bombers, kidnap soldiers, and fire thousands upon thousands of rockets. For, it is a time of choosing for the Arabs.

Do they get the message, or do they want to weaken the morale of those whom they deem as targets. It's up to them, and this affects us all.
