Au contraire, Mr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon
in response to reader comment: Did Muslims ever fear Israel?

Dear Mr. Pipes,

Regarding the basis for moslem motivations to attack Israel. The moslems have been successfully attacking Jews going back to the first battles of mohamed in the koran ...They are simply following in his footsteps believing in their age old "religious" nonsense.

The moslem attacks on Israel today are merely a continuation in this long, sordid and religiously motivated history of aggresion. I must respectfully disagree with you on that point. The so called "arab nations" of Egypt, Syria,Lebannon etc. have at best tenuous land claims on Israel. Only "Trans-Jordan" had some tiny basis for claiming Israel but no longer does. Therefore one must conclude that attacks based on islam are the driving force ( martyrdom, gratuitous murder, rape,plunder and high unemployment come with the territory).
