Iran, Lebanon, Gaza, Hasbollah and Hamas and the other quiet Arab countries - our enemies.

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

Submitted by Charles H. Keys (United States), Jul 18, 2006 at 16:42

Your article just begins the story. The capturing of the Israeli soldiers was just the beginning - chapter one. I believe the real problem concerns Israel initially, but the entire non-Islamic western world primarily.

Distorted Islamic evil groups (Hamas, Hezbollah, et.al) preach and practice hatred and violence. These groups want to devour the entire free non Islamic world. They keep their people ill housed, ill fed, ill medically treated and blame the Jews and western world for all of their problems. Hesbollah and Hamas leaders have amassed millions of dollars given to their people and kept for themselves at the expense of their people. Their greed and hatred exceeds any good they may do.

Today they fight on two fronts (actually many more fronts too) - the first front is Iran's nuclear ambition - to become a world Islamic nuclear power to promote their evil against Israel and the western world. To hide their sinister ambitions, they started the problem in Lebanon (again) and fueled the fires in Gaza - now the world is only talking about Lebanon and Gaza and not Iran's nuclear ambitions.

When I read and hear on the news about the US and other countries trying to bring home over 25,000 of their citizens - I fear they may know something we don't. Will Iran via Hasbollah and Hamas use their influence to heat up the fronts even more!

As you, I believe Israel must stay aggressive, focused and not even consider compromise. We must work with world powers who only see the problems as world-wide and not only Israels'. Hasbollah and Hamas have clearly stated their wish to eliminate Israel and eventually all Jews worldwide.

I only hope Israel and Jews everywhere hears the voices of our past, never forgetting how the world actually feels about us. We are a strong people and must stay strong - at whatever the cost. We can never allow a repetition of our past as in the last century and the many centurys before.

The Jewish people are again being used (sacrificed) by the free world. Israel and every Jew is engaged in the same war.
