Patience Instead Of Violence Urged On Israel

The rush to judgment on the part of the Netanyahu government reminds those who have studied American-Soviet relations of Americans who wanted to drop atomic bombs on the enemy because unless the US acted immediately, evil would triumph. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a recent TV interview, urged the Israel government to halt its head-long determination for a finality with Iran. She termed Israel’s Iran policy “futile” and that it would only result in disaster for both nations. “We have negotiated with many governments who we did not believe represented the will of their people. Look at all the negotiations that went on with the Soviet Union. That’s what you get to do in diplomacy. You don’t get to choose the people. It required fifty years of negotiation with the Soviet Union before democracy and peace came to that nation.

Recent events in Iran indicate a significant portion of its population seek peace and democracy. The future of Iran is still unknown, but one thing is for certain, an Israel air attack on Iran would unite the nation behind the current rulers and kill any hope for democracy in that nation for twenty years. Sometimes, the race actually goes to the turtle rather than the hare.

    INSTEAD OF GIVIVING SUCH KIND OF ADVICES YOU SHOULD DO BETTER KEEP SILENT.
    IT IS EASY TO TELL OTHERS TO DO IF ONE IS NOT THE VICTIM.
    WHY DO YOU NOT GIVE THIS KIND OF ADVISE TO HAMAS AND TO OTHER TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS.

    I care about the people of Israel as I care about Palestinians. I have criticized both Israelis and Hamas and Fatah. People like you who refuse to focus on peace are the ones who seek to doom Israel to isolation and violence.
