I Have The Same Questions

Reader comment on item: My Peace Plan: An Israeli Victory
in response to reader comment: And then what?

Submitted by Mark D. (United States), Apr 30, 2010 at 21:46

----- Dr. Pipes- once Israel has won the psychological war, what do you envision as the final result? Two states, with no restrictions? Two states, with the Palestinian state demilitarized? One state, with Palestinians less than full citizens? Or one state with Palestinians full citizens?

To be considered a victory, does Israel have to create a sense of defeat in all Palestinians? A majority of Palestinians? Or only the ruling Palestinians? In other words, if the PA and Fatah were defeated and ready to accept a true peace accord, but Hamas or some similar faction still wanted to carry on the fight, would a peace accord work? -----

It was a "just like that" article that prompts your excellent questions.

I ask the same.

Mark D.
