Reader comment on item: The Way to Peace

Dear Daniel Pipes,

Of course, I agree with you that only through Victory with Peace be achieved
among the Jews, Arabs, and Christians in the former Mandate of Palestine.

I differ with you on Tactics, and Time.
I think you are taking a Local view of the Conflict,
as opposed to a Global one.
I also suspect that you have a different Time-frame in mind.
I'll explain.

With the Collapse of Imperialism, Fascism, and Communism
as a result, or by-product, of the two World Wars,
Islam, and the place of Muslims in this world
has immersed as the single most immense unresolved international issue.
At the same time, Oil is no longer as potent a force of Saudi Arabia
and its Sunni subordinates; furthermore, ISIS is beginning to be seen
as an off-shoot of Wahhabi-ism. But America's Shale replacement,
and alternative, non-Carbon sources of Energy, such as Solar, Wind, etc.,
as well as the decline of the Price of Oil,
as well as Israel emerging as the "Start-Up Nation,"
have all contributed to change Tactics for victory for Israel.

Let me interject, that Alexander died too Young,
and Napoleon ultimately made Strategic blunders.

Although American Jews have moved to the Left of the Jews of Israel,
India and China, the two great economic powers,
second only to the USA, have come closer to Israel
for Economic Reasons, the the Muslims of the world
as less to be deferred to than in the past.

As Bismark created Modern Germany
out of tiny Prussia,
so too perhaps Netanyahu
is correctly "playing"
an International Diplomatic game
by winning the Rest of the World
over to Israel;
perhaps Israel,
instead of Belgium, or Germany,
will win the rotating seat on the Security Council ?

And perhaps - in the long run - there will be land
in Greater Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan,
and the rest of the Muslim and non-Jewish world
for Palestinians to Settle
-just like the Jews, after 1945, 1948, especially
came from Christian and Nazi Europe,
and the Arab Muslim World,
to rightly "re-colonize" Palestine
and created Ultra Modern (& Hasidim) Israel.

I think perhaps the weakest link to Israel's Victory
is in the realm of Hasbara, Advertising, and Public Relations.
The Nazis created the notions of Superiority,
which the Islamists re-branded as Islamism in the name of Muhammad,
instead of the perversion of Nietzsche's Superman under Joseph Goebbels.
But the British re-invented the competitive Olympic spirit of Excellence.
Israeli Jews are on the Frontiers of the West exhibiting that kind
of Classical Greek Excellence.
But unfortunately, there is also the fact that
as Nietzsche and Karl Marx
saw Jesus as a hero,
Christianity in Europe has also produced
so-called "slave-mentality"
and even unworthy excuses for the Underdog.
Palestinian Columbia University Literati Edward Said (no longer with us),
wrote the "Bible" for the Palestinians and other Arab Muslims,
attacking Jewish Islam Scholar Bernard Lewis,
in the book, "Orientalism."

So, in part, the way to Victory,
is to recognize Israeli Jews as "Heroes" of Classical Greatness,
and the Palestinian Arabs, mostly,
as remnants of the collapse of the Sick-man of Europe
(Ottoman Empire, and Totalitarian Turkey under Erdogan).
It is unfortunate that the History of Slavery in the United States,
and Racism in Western Europe,
that Excellence can only be translated as Superiority
and implicit Inferiority.
But the fact is, there is little Excellence
among Palestinians, Arabs, and Muslim,
except, sarcastically speaking,
in the invention and dissemination
of the Suicide Vest, and Homicide Van,
usually worn, or executed, and performed in the name of
So, territorial Victory for Israel
implies Defeat for the Islamic State
and it's Palestinian "Brothers" & "Sister"
who are merely in denial.

So an Israeli Victory
means a Victory for the Civilized World,
as opposed by the Islamic Submission
currently being imposed by ISIS only most conspicuously.

Or would you rather hypocritically "CAIR" ("Council on American-Islamic Relations") ?
