President Donald Trump "Onion-Peeling" Policy for Israel's Victory is Making the Philistines Cry

Reader comment on item: Why Israelis Shy from Victory

Submitted by Robert (United States), Sep 13, 2018 at 12:46

Here (below) is an online Article "Analysis" in "Israel Today" which shows the War Front is not on the Border or Armistice Lines of Israel, and that not Israel, but the USA, is the country which needs to "defeat" the Philistines in order for Israel to achieve "Victory." In particular, like a good general, Trump has already "taken" Jerusalem for Israel. He has also, apparently, moved towards denying the "Right of Return" to 5,000,000 Philistines by denying them American financing through the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

Like I keep saying/writing "Victory" is a misleading notion regarding Strategy and Tactics for Israel to "win." In fact, what does "winning" consist of for Israel isn't well identified. I prefer the notion of "PACIFICATION" (of the Philistines]. It's somewhat, perhaps, equivalent to Denazification in Germany after World War II. More specification,it doesn't involve War, or the Military. In other words, its what comes after the "hot war" ends. Yes, my IMPLICIT reference to the COLD WAR is deliberate.
