Policy of Reciprocity Toward Sponsors

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

Submitted by A.Karloff (United States), Jul 18, 2006 at 16:42

Dear Mr. Pipes:

Aggression against Israel sponsored by Iran and Syria must become very costly and humiliating to its advocates. Israel must publicly inform the leadership of Iran and Syria that it will commence a policy of reciprocity against the sponsors of terrorism.

Reciprocity is easy to understand and very fair. It is intented to punish those guilty of aggression. Once it is publicly communicated, all the members of the world community will understand what is to be expected.The formula for its application is complex since there are two belligerents, Iran and Syria. Since both countries are party to the aggression, a city of strategic importance located in each of the belligerent countries will be attacked.

As an additional feature of this policy of "RECIPROCITY " , Israel may find it useful to consult with the United States, even before any attacks occur, in order to compile a list of targets of strategic value. Of course, after this policy is made public, its necessity may only be academic.
