The "buck" stops here!

Reader comment on item: U.S. to Israel: Do As We Say ...

Submitted by Yaakov Elefant (Israel), Jul 7, 2003 at 05:38

I have a much simpler approach to the multi-standards approach of the US Government.

It is the "holy" or "unholy" dollar.

Israel will always be wrong, always be called on to "test" the waters at the expense of Jewish blood, since this is what appeases the Arab world to whom we all still are beholding for the vast oil consumption of the World.

So America & Europe will all play a game in order not to incite the Arab world which will affect the "big business" in the US & Europe, Israel must be wrong.

History, religious belief, justice, wisdom or even just common sense will all be scarificed for the mighty buck!

Daniel Pipes continues to decry the injustice in politics and I applaud him for it, but the reality is that it will remain unjust, regarding Israel in particular, until, if ever, there is a change in the economics of politics!
