What is the plan for victory?

Reader comment on item: Israel Shuns Victory

Submitted by Jonathan D. Safren (Israel), Mar 28, 2006 at 13:41

Daniel Pipes writes: "Israelis eventually must gird themselves to resuming the difficult, bitter, long, and expensive effort needed to convince the Palestinians and others that their dream of eliminating Israel is defunct."

Please suggest exactly how is this to be done. Making vague suggestions is very easy; getting down to brass tacks is another matter.

What is Israel to do - Overrun the Palestinian towns? Shell populated areas? Cut off their water and electricity? Seal the Palestinian borders with the outside world?

Can Israel take the necessary steps without incurring the wrath of the international community, including its supporter, the United States?

Please be more specific, Dr. Pipes.
