Comments on: Why Bibi won: Israel unwilling to pay the price of hope http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/03/18/why-bibi-won-israel-unwilling-to-pay-the-price-of-hope/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: pyradius http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/03/18/why-bibi-won-israel-unwilling-to-pay-the-price-of-hope/#comment-591580 Mon, 23 Mar 2015 20:53:22 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=38819#comment-591580 I expect the author spent much more time analyzing the votes than Israelis did themselves.

Fact is most people are sheeple, merely reacting to the latest fear tactic that slightly more intelligent people have been using to dupe people for thousands of years.

The inescapable conclusion? You are spamming the site with thoughtless propaganda.

It was a special treat to NOT have to read another apologium explaining the difference between anti-Zionism and anti-semitism. And delightful to read an article that did not blame everything on Obama.

More Amy please! [And less of everybody else!]

It will never be solved with the USA pouring billions of tax dollars into both sides. This has removed the incentives of necessity which makes the best partners in negotiation.

This stand has continued since the State of Israel came into existence in 1948. There cannot be a meaningful peace process in the face of this. One cannot negotiate with organizations determined to wipe you off the map. The Muslim world must confront and stop these radicals and their extremist ideologies first. In the meantime, both the moderate Muslims and the moderate Israelis will continue to suffer. President Obama can learn something about how to do this from the current leadership in Egypt, who are attempting this very confrontation without Obama’s support. It is no easy task, and runs counter to our Western values of democracy. Ask the Egyptians.

To credible signer of a peace treaty a nation must be willing to kill their own breakers of that treaty.

Small nations unless they are driven a doctrine of religious war will make a show appearing to want peace at any price (even if they know there is no credible peace partner). But that is just window dressing for international public opinion. Leaders of the nation facing Jihad knows there little to gain by big costs for the unattainable peace. They know they are in a kill or be killed situation.

Imagine if those who wanted above all else to eliminate you, were your peace negotiation partners? You would be a fool to let your guard down until there was a mutual desire for peace. There is no mutual intention for peace. The Arab Mulsims want to destroy Israel, any peace they seek is a tactic for their ultimate goal of annihilation.

If you do not want eliminate the killers on your side after you sign the treaty, you are not credible peace partner

Her ever word seems completely foreign to the pragmatism and realpolitik considered the norm in country. It’s not hard to sniff out a sabra from a tourist. It’s clear that Amy was merely the latter. Little wonder why Israelis are finally sick of letting ‘the world’ tell us how to manage our country. And that, in the grand scheme, is why Likud made such an impressive showing in this last election. It’s not that we’re all so deeply in love with Likud. We’re just sick of naive ‘Westerners’ trying to tell us how to live.
