There was a time of peace......

Reader comment on item: Bush is rewarding [Palestinian] terrorism

Submitted by Steven M. Busch (United States), Jun 25, 2002 at 18:15

The land of Israel enjoyed it's longest reign of peace and prosperity under Solomon, but only after his father, King David, had defeated all of Israel's enemies in battle. The current Israeli policy of taking control of more territory after each and every terrorist attack is precisely the right course. The mindset of the Arab world towards Israel has always been one of hatred, jealousy and animosity. Peace in the Middle East will only come after the Arab world realizes that it is painful to attack this tiny outpost of democracy. For there to be peace in the Middle East, Israel must earn the fearful respect of it's neighbors. The only land for peace deal that WILL work is if Israel takes possession of ALL the land ... President Bush's latest speech was an embarrassment, no doubt orchestrated, at least in part, by some left wing idiots at the State Department. Let's hope PM Sharon stays the course.
