OK, rot or prosper, I don't care which

Reader comment on item: My Testimony before the House Subcommittee on Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations
in response to reader comment: "Let the Arabs Rot" by Linda

Strange, lots of criticism and funny name calling, but you offer no alternative solution.

Decades of negotiations have yielded nothing. The ruling party, Hamas, is an organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel. That is what the Palestinian people want, or they would not have voted murdering terrorists into office. The hateful indoctrination against Israel and Jews is deeply ingrained in their culture, eliminating hope for peace.

How many years must this go on? The wall has saved hundreds of Israeli lives, Jewish, Christian and Arab. OK, rot or prosper, I don't care which, but I say leave the Arabs alone, get out, establish boundaries that will ensure the safety of Israel and get on with life. Leave them to their hate, and after several decades, yes, the wall should come down, when and only when the Arabs accept the State of Israel.

You state, "The course you outline will only lead to more bloodshed on all sides" - how did you arrive at that conclusion? You make a lot of unsupported statements. The wall has proven to be effective in safeguarding human life and what I propose is a very peaceful, two-state solution.
