Israel's situation is analogous to the west's as a whole

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

Dr Pipes,

Israel's self indulgent peacemongering is analogous to the west's stance viz a vis Islam as a whole. So secure are we in our self indulgent fantasy that our comfortable lifestyle based community will persist forever that we do not notice the knives at our neck. We allow the propagation of ideologies that arrogantly seek to destroy our society and hand whole sections of government policy over to interest groups in the thrall of these ideologies (like education, immigration and social services). Israel's predicament and the unchanging stance of its far left just displays the unfortunate reality of the self hating Jew's ability to insulate him/herself from reality with flowery delusions. As Islam's power and agression grows we should expect to see the same self defeating patterns to be exhibited and propagated in our societies by self hating Australians and self hating Americans.


Reuben Horne.
