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

Submitted by Alyn Starkman (Canada), Jul 18, 2006 at 16:46

Your analysis of the situation is as usual bang on. The only other thing I would add to it is that there should be no further attempts at negotiations without Israel demanding that the refugees be absorbed into the Arab countries.

Realisticly there will never be a final resolution to this conflict until that takes place. And of course we all know that the Arabs will not immediately warm up to this idea since it takes away a key part of their arsenal against us.

However we are wasting time energy and money by avoiding this issue. Let us put to rest once and for all this nonsense of a Palestinian state on the westbank. The terrorist groups would never be satisfied and neither should we.

By making this key demand we must accept the fact that peace will probably not come in our lifetime. However it is a demand that is long overdue.
