Israelis want peace

Reader comment on item: Israelis Want Victory

Submitted by Charles Oren (Israel), Jul 12, 2017 at 02:34

Daniel Pipes asks what Israelis think about convincing Palestinians that they have lost their war against Israel. He gives no reason why Palestinians should consider that they have lost.

They did not consider this when the Egyptian army was surrounded in '49 nor when Zahal was on the road to Damascus. Palestinians believe they are supported by 1,500 million Arabs, while there are only 8 million Israelis. With these odds, they think that they must eventually win just as the Arabs did after the death of Muhammad when they occupied and settled the lands of about 50 nations and forced them to accept Islam.......with one exception, Palestine.

The Koran states, Surah 5:21 and 7:137, that Allah allocated this land to the Jews. No mortal can go against the Will of Allah! These are the odds and they are against the Palestinians! They have to accept the word of the Koran and to understand that it is useless to fight against the Will of Allah.

Daniel Pipes replies:

They should consider they have lost because they are weak and mostly forgotten. As time goes on, their relative weakness becomes more glaring. They are like a Japanese soldier still fighting World War II decades after the emperor surrounded.
