How Can Israel Win?

Reader comment on item: Israel is Winning

Israel is winning?
As they say, "From your mouth to God's ear" But God is busy doing whatever he or she does so that isn't going to happen.

How can Israel win? Most of the world hates this tiny democracy. The anti-Semitism that became unfashionable after Auschwitz is once again the flavor of the month in much of the world. The Palestinians and much of the Muslim world are not rational and can't come to logical conclusions as, for example; "this is bad for us." The Nazis and the Japanese (mostly) at least had a healthy appreciation for personal survival and self-interest. The blind hatred of the Muslim "street" will ignore your observations and continue to kill and maim until the terrorists are dead. And who are you going to do that?. The Muslim world has a huge advantage; they are not sidetracked or confused by the facts.
