Islamic territorial claim

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

You are correct in reasoning the only way Israel will perhaps obtain any relief from incessant terrorist attacks and international pressure is to be able to declare victory. Unfortunately such a declaration would require war first. As you have pointed out, one could imply Israel is already at war on many fronts: politically, economically, et al. However, what is more important for all of us to understand is that Islam is at war, not just with Israel, but with anyone who is not Islamic!

For that reason, I must admit I take issue with your statement indicating Israel would finally be able to have peace merely by declaring victory over the Palestinians, with the Palestinians conceding they have lost the conflict. Even if the Palestinians cried "Uncle," Israel woulddiscover the conflict has not ended, simply because according to the Islamic mindset, Israel stands in the way of a world-wide caliphate. As far as the muslims are concerned, Israel must be eliminated from the world map in order for their efforts to make any meaningful progress toward global Islamization.

The Palestinians are Islam's pawns in the Middle East region. According to Islam, if the Middle East falls, the rest of the world will topple like dominoes. Therefore, if the Palestinians were to suddenly become complacent in their role, the rest of the Islamic world would certainly find excuse to continue the conflict against Israel. The rest of the Arab world, and all Islamic regimes, would not simply fall in line to give-up their ideological pursuit if the Palestinians cried defeat.

Peace for Israel therefore does not merely lie in winning the current Arab-Israeli conflict! Rather, Islam would have to be eliminated from the earth for that to occur! Either Israel is to be wiped out, or Islam must be wiped out! That's the extent of the conflict Israel, and undoubtedly the rest of the non-Islamic world, faces. The conflict therefore, is not merely Israel's! The sooner we all realize this the better!

Israel's position is strategic to world peace, not just to Middle East peace! If the non-Islamic democratic regimes of this world would only understand the extent of what Israel is dealing with, they would cease to pressure Israel toward more and more concessions which only feed the Islamic appetite.

This conflict only has one direction -- to excalate into all-out world war, unless the rest of the word wakes-up to the truth of why Islam is exercising Jihad!

Israel, and by extension, the world, needs victory declared over Islam, not just over the Palestinians!
