I had refrained earlier from putting to words the circumstance that for many, would be considered unreasonable, verily, unthinkable, in the context of how would humanity survive what was years ago an irrational mindset of the catastrophic consequences of a nuclear exchange, the ability of which then was in the hands of only the superpowers. The scenarios of survival ranged from a doomsday aspect to one of a calculated risk of losses considered acceptable. Neither scenario survived- no thanks given to anything other than a collapsing economy no longer able to keep a nuclear umbrella afloat.

But things have changed. Nuclear tactics have been downscaled, from the once highly touted deterrence mindset that beset the cold war years and a couple of generations of baby boomer cycles of a philosophical changes and the new application of limited theater tactics that could by certain determination, produce an outcome that can achieve certain goals of domination. The only caveat to that is whether or not modern nuclear warfare tactics can be contained from reaching rogue ideologies seeking to achieve a different order after the engagement occurs, in spite of all attempts to prevent any attempt of detonating a nuclear device fails.

If one were to follow a defeat of the 'Palestinian' entity with a projected determination of what to do with the 'Palestinian' survivors, one of several scenarios to be considered is that the 'Palestinian' entity is to be considered unfeasible, the politics of the 'Palestinian' statehood no longer an option. The population would, of a necessity, be broken down to the original ethnic family background of the former 'Palestinian' person: vis a vis if Egyptian by ethnicity, then Egyptian; if Arabian, then Arabian; if Lebanese, Syrian, Chaldean, then so on and so on. Where one might try to impose an indigenous peoples' status, then application into citizen status devoid of the 'Palestinian' reference would need to be imposed. Be careful here, though: this is only one supposed outcome, definitely not to be assumed as a possible plan of action. Why? It is because, in this observer's opinion, it will never have this kind of outcome.

The previous writer has brought up the circumstance of an "all out war," trying to put words in Dr. Pipes allegory of peace at the hands of a 'Palestinian' defeat, but at what cost. Do not think for a moment that Israel is going to be allowed to engage in a war for security except the world stands in Israel's way to get a promise of peace at Israel's expense. The preparation of the scenarios brought into the previous writer's supposition is close enough to the preparation called for in the prophetic application that it bears noting. Only the omission of other partners in the international crimes about to beset Israel is there an incomplete picture developed. What is being planned is indeed intended to be horrifically catastrophic for the losers: but be warned Israel is not going to be the loser.

This circumstance is going to be repeated and repeated, falling on deaf ears until the deafening of the catastrophic end of civilization as we know it today comes about. Only then will the nations surrounding Israel in eager anticipation of Israel's demise find out they were pawns in a worldwide scheme that was doomed to failure even before the thoughts of the enemies of Israel ever formed. In the time it took for this to be written, yet another moment of anxious movement towards this final reality has been taken. It is written that 'patience is a virtue.' What happens folks, when the patience of the enemies of Israel say, "enough!!?" There is only one place to find the answer to that; but that has been written before and very few in the current international places of power are reading from that text.
