Second guessing

Reader comment on: Middle East Panel Discussion

Submitted by Ed Katz (United States), Apr 4, 2009 11:49

Sometimes the Israelis over guess what the Arabs do and think. Thinking that Hamas and Fatah are different is a misconception.. The only difference is one is heavily armed and the other is not. Neither one has any intention of recognizing Israel as a sovereign state.

Israel has a vast amount of military strength over Muslim state at this point;however, because Russia and Iran are improving their capability . It would be to Israel's interest to totally destroy Hamas now, providing security on the southwest section of Israel, leaving only Hezbollah on her northern border to contend with. Arabs, living in Judea and Shomron, in my opinion, would not be able to effectively effect Israel's security.

Another concern is that with Obama now having been elected, the US is swinging its allegiance away from Israel to the Muslim states, even Iran. If this is the case, Gaza and Hezbollah will be in a much stronger position to attack Israel. The EU, who politically sides with the Muslims, are virtually powerless to affect Israel's security, but they continue to hurt Israel's economy by refusing to trade with her.

Israel would be in a better light internationally, to destroy her enemies as much as possible, and let it be know , not only to Syria and Iran as well as the Western states, that any future attacks on her will see armageddon descend on the Arabs. The only thing they really understand is the power to destroy them for generations to come.
