Embarass Palestinians

Reader comment on item: This Is the Moment for an Israeli Victory

Submitted by Gary Clarke (Canada), Jan 3, 2017 at 21:47

According to David Goldman (Why Civilizations Die), a critical point to deter all-out war is to embarrass the belligerent internationally. WWII may have been avoided by annexing part of Germany in the 30's for example.

How might that strategy be translated to embarrassing the Palestinians - beyond rhetoric that is?

The Palestinians seem to me quite un-embarrassable.
