Joint-List & PA to Censure Israel at the UN

Reader comment on item: Poll: Israel Victory Gains Strength

Submitted by Robert (United States), Aug 26, 2018 at 20:38

Dear Daniel Pipes,

Victory,in the age of Nuclear Bombs and Asymmetrical Warfare requires new,non-military tactics.

And here are Palestinian Arabs at the best at it - resorting to the International Arena,the UN.

"Arab MKs and Palestinians jointly seek to censure Israel at U.N."
"Anyone who cooperates with the Palestinian Authority against Israel should ask themselves whether their rightful place is in the Palestinian or Israeli parliament," Edelstein said.

So it is in the "Battles" at the UN where an Israeli Victory must be Strategized.

There are at least 3 Tactical points I wish to make in that context.

It appears that the Enemies of Israel do not consider Jews in regard to their Religion.
Rather, they are attacked as Racist in declaring Israel - in its Basic Law - to be Jewish.
At the same time,they do not want Jews of Israel to "Settle" outside the 1967 Lines.

You argue elsewhere about the "Civilizational" parties of Europe.
But at the core of all these emerging parties is the notion of the Nation-State in Europe.
And in each Anti-Semitism, including other forms of Racism, have been rejected.
Furthermore,the common threat to all these countries is the "invasion"
and "settlement" by the mostly Arab and Muslim refugees of the Middle East
who have been unsuccessful in creating viable mordern Arab states,
especially after the Arab Spring.

It is this same UNCIVILIZED Arab or Islamist demographic
which seeks to impose itself on Jewish Israel.
Refusing to recognize Israel as Jewish is itself Racism, aka Anti-Semitism.
And anyone who isn't an Islamophobe in this context is either a fool or an Islamist.

Clearly, the 2-state solution is over in the minds of Palestinians,
including Israelis Arabs who have here discovered they are Palestinians.

Once again,I emphasize that Jordan is Palestine,
especially for those Israelis Arabs who refuse
to recognize the fact that Zionism, Pogroms, and the Holocaust made that so.

But Jews also have always had extreme Leftists
who always denied Zionism as Nationalism
to be replaced by Worker states (Communism or Socialism).

In that context,Israel should look to Bismark
(since you don't like our Henry) regarding Victory (and War)
and the creation of Modern Germany before the World War (WWI).
Accordingly, Israel's border is well defined regarding Gaza and Egypt's Sinai.
It seems like there is a chance for a Sea-Port and Airport for Gaza
in the Mediterranean towards Cyprus, and in Egypt's Sinai.
But Jordan is unstable, its Parliament
even considering breaking off relations and renouncing the Peace Treaty.
That should be a welcome opportunity for Israel.
Also, Trumps administration is currently discussing
the removal of 2 million Palestinians from the status of Refugees,
removing them from the UN roles paid for mostly by the US,
and making them,implicitly, full citizens of former Transjordan (Palestine).
Obviously, any Israeli Arab who racial is unwilling to live in Jewish Israel
should have the right to Immigrate Legally to Palestinian Jordan.
(That may be a problem primarily because Jordanian Racism
against Palestinian "refugees"of 1948, and 1967, and the consequences of Black September
and the War of Jordan's first king and Arafat's PLO.

What's Left are the three Arab states of Lebanon, Syria,and Iraq.
Israel should confront these states with its Racism/Anti-Semitism
in refusing to permit Jews to live and thrive there
and insist that it solve the Sunni/Shea divide
in a manner not unfavorable to Israel.
Russia sided with the Shea militarily.
So Israel should favor the non-ISIS Shea.
Turkey supports Ottomanism and the Muslim Brotherhood,
neither of which are "digestible" to any Arab or Muslim state.

For an Israel Victory Israel need an "Aggressive" proactive foreign policy.
It should initiate wars,however,but it shouldn't only occupy itself with Iran.
Nevertheless, the first order of business should be dismantling Hezbollah.
The US spends billions on Lebanon's military;
Hezbollah should therefore be disbanded,one way or another.
Having permitted more than 100,000 missiles to accumulate
in the control of Hezbollah was a tactical error Israel must now counteract.
Also, Syria always claimed to be Greater Syria
(in Ottoman Empire times Palestine was part of Syria).
Therefore, it must force to open its doors to Palestinian refugee settlements,
and grant full citizenship to those already there.
And to the extent Syria) Damascus and Iraq (Baghdad)
had their Baath Party history as Arab homelands,
all Palestinian Arabs,especially those in Israel,
who reject the Basic Law
which now explicitly establishes Israel as a Jewish state,
should have the Right to Immigrate and Settle there.
