Israel Victory vs. corporate interests

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

Submitted by Camelinspace (Israel), Jan 6, 2019 at 04:03

Is the Israel Victory project in favor or against "economic peace" activities before the Palestinians admit defeat?

I ask because I've been seeing a lot in the news recently about corporations actively seeking to work with and/or hire Palestinians, such as that famous soda company and their plans to build a plant in Gaza, a joint Israeli-Palestinian mall being built along the security barrier, an existing joint industrial park in Judea/ Samaria, and corporate gas sales to the Palestinian Authority. This "jobs and capitalism now" model seems entrenched across so many worldviews, ranging from the "settlers" goal of a joint future under Israeli rule to the establishment's goal of conflict management to the left's love of appeasement. Could this corporatism, since it fits so many people's worldview's and interests, ironically be a barrier to peace?

Daniel Pipes replies:

We who advocate for Israel Victory reject rewarding the Palestinians before they accept the Jewish state.
