That Lucky Golan Heights

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

Submitted by Jay (United States), Jul 19, 2006 at 01:42

Lets review. While Hezbollah ,under the direction and funding of Iran and its poodle Syria is disproportionately firing all their missiles into civilian Israel, Israel is being asked and agreeing to avoid civilians at all costs. If Israel tried as hard to kill civilians as Hezbollah, Israel by now, probably could have killed 300,000 Lebanese. But that is the way the world likes it.

Led by the UN and their deals, Israel may fight just a littlle, not win, and proceed then to have the next nervous breakdown. Iran and Syria are right to laugh. And abuse. And to spit and finger Israel-and now the US. Because for them history will not change. Buildings can be rebuilt, ceasefires broken, politicians assasinated, and today Israelis killed in Israel and Americans in Iraq.

With Irans natural enemy Iraq no longer a counter,Iran feels good. And Syria feels good. What will change for Syria? You know the line. If Assad is toppled and Damascus destroyed, Syria may becme an even worse place. And when Syria gets in a bad bind they can surrender as only Syria can, and guess what? Get back the Golan Heights. And Israelis die and Americans die. Lucky for Israel,and I mean lucky, that they never ceded the Golan Heights .Otherwise they would be receiving missles from three directions instead of two.

And how lucky for Syria that the Golan Heights is not "permanently recognized as the sovereign territory of Israel" by the same UN that makes all these other great deals for Israel. But why stop a good comedy? Can you imagine if Assad's Syria and Iran ever had "real reason" to stop laughing at Israel and the US.They might just die of a broken heart.
