The Defeat of Palestinians

Reader comment on item: Israel Victory Gains Strength

Submitted by Ilbert Phillips (United States), Jul 3, 2018 at 22:25

I personally have never understood the world's refusal to allow Israel to defeat the Palestinians.
At the very point where the Muslims are losing a particular war with Israel, some peacekeeper steps and get Israel to agree to an armistice. There is this very strange psychological instinct at work where Western diplomats want to help Arabs to save face. The approach is so uninformed about human nature it is scary that we have very educated diplomats willing to adopt policies that are actually stupid. Israel will finally continue the war until the Palestinians shout "Uncle."
