Treat the Arabs Like The U.S. Treated Japan in WWII

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

The mindset of both the Arabs and the Japanese are/were similar. The Japanese were ready to die to the last man, until they saw the probability of the complete annihilation of their people and culture. I think the Japanese were a little more realistic than the Muslims. They make samurai movies, but they don't want to live in the Middle Ages. The Muslims want to turn the clock back. The Israelis must show them that if they remain on their present course, the clock won't stop until it gets to the Stone Age.
