Mr Pipes, I have a question - how do you politically define victory?

Reader comment on item: Pushing for an Israeli Victory Is the Only Way to End the Conflict with the Palestinians

Submitted by Dong (Canada), Dec 16, 2018 at 22:16

1. Does it include the annexation of West Bank (or Judea and Samaria to you)?

2. If yes to #1, how about the Palestinians living on them? Israeli citizenship for them?

3. I assume that you completely leave Gaza out of all this, as the statelet has 2m Arabs, and Israel cannot continue as a de facto/de jure Jewish state with so many Palestinians. What is your vision for Gaza? Egyptian annexation?

PS. I imagine PM Netanyahu has not made any of his positions regarding Palestinians clear & public, given the probable backlash. He must surely agree with you to a great extent.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I define victory as imposing one's will on the enemy.

As I have repeatedly indicated, the Israel Victory Project does not delve into the specifics of a Palestinian-Israeli resolution. We say that whatever your preferred outcome, it's more likely to happen once the Palestinians accept Israel as the Jewish state.
