Exacerbating Rhetoric Not Unexpected - Expect Catastrophic Results

Reader comment on item: Annexing the West Bank Would Hurt Israel
in response to reader comment: Pontificating Middle East Peace for Israel in Cloaking Terms

So, it is read elsewhere that Jordanian Rex Abdullah is preparing to go to political extortion, potentially to further extremes, if Israel continues in its quest for internal national security in a region that seeks Israel's harm in any category that a hostile world deems acceptable. How does Jordan seek such political extremes when they cannot guarantee their own political stability. Indeed, how does any antagonist guarantee their own political integrity when Israel's true destiny is realized.

The usual suspects may be preparing to exercise some form of political intrigue, even to the extent that there is a perception that Israel is more vulnerable during this pandemic crisis, maybe ramping up the violent tendencies that are at large to the north. This will not go well if anyone thinking that Israel is an easy mark decides to move in. Ramping the rhetoric will definitely not be in anyone's best interest; but it will not stop, will it......!?
