Peace or Genocide

Reader comment on item: My Testimony before the House Subcommittee on Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations

Submitted by Felipe Ornelas (United States), Feb 20, 2007 at 12:18

After watching all of the nearly three hours of testimony the options for peace in the middle east remain clear to me. Peace may be achieved by Israel winning the war, or as Dr. Pipes says, the Palestinians give up. The other option for peace is that the Palestinians and backers win, and fulfill their explicit purpose of driving Israel into the sea and wiping them off the map. It seems only one of these outcomes deserves serious consideration, and what better place for serious consideration than in testimony before congress.

To allow discussion of the other possible peace is not only counterproductive for the government of a civilized country, it is making our country and its citizens accomplices in ethnic cleansing. A man who holds the door open for a thug enabling the thug to murder his friend is not praised for his civility, he is castigated for his ignorance, blindness, and cowardice. So let us hope that if the U.S. congress has apparently shut the door to discussion of genocide in the middle east, it will do so in reality as well.
