Israeli Victory in the Context of Fatah & Hamas

Reader comment on item: Explaining Israel's Timid Security Establishment

Submitted by Robert (United States), Jun 30, 2020 at 09:03

Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

I've submitted criticism that for an Israel to achieve Victory (post it's Civil War since 1948) what is required is a Strategy with particular implicit Tactics. However, there is no Bismark on the scene to embody such conditions it appears, except, it seems, the Almighty.

The strategy of the Palestinians, Arabs, and Muslims at large has been and continued to be one of waiting for the ultimate destruction of tiny Jewish Israel within the gigantic surrounding Muslim and Arab neighborhood supported by the inherently anti-Semitic West (Europe in particular), and the Realpolitik non-Abrahamic rest of the world.

But Providence, it would seem, has created its own "chess moves" of politics. The Globalists who support and believe in International Law as expressed by voted resolutions of the UN Secure Council impose their arguments that Israeli political activities in greater Palestine are "illegal" if executed outside of the so-called "peace process" (Oslo, etc.).

Here, however, is the "Achilles heal" of the enemies of Israel. Fatah and the PLO (in the West Bank - Samaria & Judea) are allegedly the "legitimate" representatives of the Palestinian Arabs, while Hamas is mostly recognized as a "terrorist" (& Moslem Brotherhood related) entity.

However, the leadership under the aging and ailing octogenarian "dictator Abbas is on the verge of collapse (it has been so for a while now).

Suppose that demise were encouraged? That would make Hamas the only organ standing as representing the Palestinian cause. Would that not naturally lead to an Israeli "Victory" because no "international law" alternative would remain in existence?

The narrative of the enemies of Zionist Israel is that of 2 states for 2 people. With only Hamas standing, the irony is that the surrounding Arabs are the ones who are most vehemently opposed to the Palestinian cause when revealed through the collapse of the other which is on life-support. Although only Iran and Qatar and Turkey support Hamas, the demise of the Palestinian Authority would expose the Myth of the Peace Process from the viewpoint of the Palestinian side.

In summary, it is suggested that the PA receive "assisted suicide" as a means to an Israeli Zionist Victory with (primarily) Hamas left standing to present the demands of non-Israeli Palestinians.
