  ''Pariah''? Here's Why

RESPONSE:

"Pariah"? Here's Why

by Doris Rausch

All you have to do is take a look at a current map; you can see for yourself the "facts on the ground" as to who is trying to push whom into the sea.
Re: Michael Suedfeld's article "Why Is Israel a World Pariah?", written in response to William Hughes' commentary, "The Bloody Paths to Crawford, Texas"

Israel's history has been one of provocations, then retaliation for the retaliation provoked, and then further provocation, to achieve its ultimate goal of pushing the Palestinians out of their homeland into--the sea, Lebanon, Jordan, or wherever, so that they can achieve their goal of gobbling up all of Palestine inch-by-inch.

Whenever these tactics are exposed (as in the case of William Hughes' article), someone (in this case Mr. Suedfeld) is designated to spring into action with a rebuttal of lies, half-truths, and "How can you possibly pick on such a wonderful virtuous somewhat-democracy?"

But if you want the truth, all you have to do is take a look at a current map; you can see for yourself the "facts on the ground" as to who is trying to push whom into the sea.

Just because one people have been victims in the past does not give them the right to do the same thing to others. If Israel has a right to exist, then so does Palestine--OR, the two could exist as one State with equal rights for all--a true democracy.
