Serious Question for Mr. Pipes--Two Critical Elements Missing From the Discussion--Why?

Reader comment on item: Is Israel Victory Still Needed?

Submitted by JPatriot18 (United States), Oct 11, 2020 at 22:49

Not to suggest that there isn't meaningful, well worthwhile, creative thought behind IVP, but in my opinion, there are two critical elements missing from Mr. Pipes article.

Not a word was written about the European sponsored anti-Israel NGOs, and not even a single mention of the Obama State Department policies placing virtually all the pressure on Israel to relent. I wonder why. How come?

EU/UN and other globalist funded NGOs have not only been funding illegal building and settlement to establish different facts on the ground, but also fomenting civil unrest amongst Israel's citizenry.

Likewise, UNSC Resolution 2334 which Obama/Kerry actually helped draft not only dismisses entirely all aspects of Israel's legal settlement rights as specified in the U.N. Charter, but also permanently calcifies the Palestinians' negotiating stance; read its language!

With the Security Council's approval, they do not EVER have to relent on, or even modify so much as a single aspect of their positions into perpetuity!

Ultimately, both these NGOs and the Obama Administration have been focused not toward promoting peace but toward alienating Israel on the world stage.

Their efforts are all oriented toward hemming Israel in over time, attempting to set her off as a pariah, making the BDS movement look like child's play---With the objective of forcing Israel to relent.

With forces this strong and obvious, then why Mr. Pipes, did you neglect their mention them?

I did not neglect mention of them. I included them all under the Global Left.
