Define Victory

Reader comment on item: My Peace Plan: An Israeli Victory

Submitted by Jim Prichard (United States), Apr 30, 2010 at 17:12

Dr. Pipes,

You stated:

"Likewise, the Arab-Israeli conflict will be resolved only when one side gives up."


"Of course, Israel faces obstacles in achieving victory.'

Therefore, can you define for us what Israel would most likely have to do to "achieve victory" (the Arabs or Palestinians "give up")?


Jim Prichard

Daniel Pipes replies:

I prefer not to go into details. When my goal of victory is accepted, it will be relevant and useful to get into strategy and tactics. Now, there is no point. Suffice to say that I envisage a combination of political and military moves.
