*** Naive Left? Paranoid Right? Beiling does not seen to be naive, rather realistic, thinking of long-term consequences. *** The "right" seem to say that it is impossible to make peace with the arabs, they are "Hitler". It's impossible. *** Sadly: Even if Israels enemies got what they wanted, I do not think that the attacks on Israel would stop. Hatred and fanaticism would remain for many years, but not forever. *** I do not think that hatemonging fanatics constitute the bulk of the islamic world. Moderate, non-hateful arabs/Iranians are the only ones who can outgrow the extremists in the long run, and Israel has to remember that when going to pre-emptive wars. *** Those more balanced, non-hateful islamic people are the hope of Israel. If all islamic humans beings are ?Hitler? - How would the right plan for the future? War, war, war until the atomic desert arrives? The middle east is to small for even a ?local? nuclear war.
