Peace Alone the Best Defense for All

 

 

 

Obama- Romney's presidential race competition to gain pro-Israel votes, and dollars, seems like a struggle-to-death cock fighting for a sick chicken! What a struggle! And what a chicken! ''What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26.

According to Mr. Romney if '' Israel is attacked, we have their back, not just diplomatically, not just culturally, but militarily'', unknowingly -perhaps!!!- that Israel itself has been using every means to threaten, attack, and kill.

In so doing, Israel is but attacking itself in a self-suicidal persistent rejection of just peace demands. Peace, with all of what this noble objective entails, is alone the best defense for all. Unwisely, the Government of Israel is now busing itself with the fuelling of unrest and crisis. In the global village of today, none is safe when the earth even slightly trembles. Obama's Administration 'unbreakable' bond with Israel is indeed broken and even fractured in the absence of serious peace efforts by the sponsor of Madrid process, not to mention the lack of a real intention and willingness by Israel for peace.

Be it for Obama, or for Romney, and apart from the results of forthcoming elections in Israel, it is only the resort to the right path of just and comprehensive peace that would salvage the region from al-Qaeda-affiliated present as well as future threats.
