Sometimes doing nothing helps

Reader comment on item: Two Palestines, Anyone?
in response to reader comment: freeman, Israel is defending themselves

Submitted by freeman (United States), Jun 20, 2007 at 21:42

I think not intervening has benefits, even though morally I think Israel should defend itself.

Let the 2 sides fight it out, and when the Gaza Arabs unite against Israel, if that ever happens, then strike. Any invasion should be done carefully with ground troops so they only hit the groups shooting the rockets so as not to disturb the civil war. The longer the civil war, the better, in my very humble opinion.

Also, Israel is still giving foreign aid to Fatah and allowing in Arab refugees from Gaza. Both of these policies will hurt Israel more.
