Gardens in the desert - I think not

Reader comment on item: Two Palestines, Anyone?

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jun 19, 2007 at 23:06

One of the steps of building a society that the "Palestinians" utterly and totally reject is what C.S. Lewis communicated in "The Abolition of Man". Regardless of the differences between the Tao, the Rta, the philosophy of the Logos, and the Ma'at - there are similarities and that is where different groups can work on building a society. For the foundation of law is morality.

But, this is viewed as iniquitous and perfidy by the brigands who follow in the hoof-prints of the raiders who stormed out of the Arabian Peninsula 1400 years ago. It will require cultural change, and the sooner we get to it - the less time is lost in the byzantine labyrinth that has enslaved far too many, for far too long.

Natan Sharansky was correct in "The Case for Democracy" than an interim Authority has to be handed the reins of government - and when mosques and schools and media outlets are closed when Arab Aryanism is communicated; then real progress can be made in washing away the surplus of salt which poisons the greater Mid East. The likes of Hamas do not give a rat's ass as to why they are not trusted - and this has to be brought to an end, because it isn't right that they fulminate; while the rest of us have to accomodate their tirades.
