Possibilities of Positivities Projecting Towards Peace

Reader comment on item: Are Israeli Arabs Finally Moderating?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Dec 24, 2020 at 02:30

Perimeter Politics Presents Potential Path in Peacemaking:

Dr. Pipes' expression of a potential change in the dynamics of Arab posturing as it relates to a softening of lethal diatribes pointed towards the invectives of moving against a Jewish state seems compelling; all of which appears to interfere with ages old perspectives of how to eliminate Israel; and may now be showing something most observers of this era would never have dreamed possible. But before this turns into something that might provoke some form of elation, the cautionary tale. Islam no longer speaks with one consent; and only a minority of Muslims can be considered approachable in any discussions of this topic, in spite of the advancement apparently at the hands of the Administration of President Trump.

Further, any such gains are at jeopardy since the entirety of the rest of the international community are at odds in the seasoned sympathy of the 'Palestinian' situation, the bargaining obstacle that has the world barking at Israel's door.

When it was made clear that the Administration of President Trump was not going to bargain with the future of Jerusalem, a crack in solidarity of the opposition regarding Jewish question forced a much misunderstood circumstance of why Israel was able to withstand a world wide clamor for concessions to allow power to be allotted to the 'Palestinian Authority,' mostly in total disregard for Israeli sovereignty and security, the very thing that the current PA was able to utilize to get that sympathy for their purported 'cause of return,' a shaky proposition even when it appeared that Yassar Arafat was able to fool earlier American administrations long with the EU. Of the earlier peace deals, maybe the Egyptian and the Jordanian agreements appeared possible because of the recognition they were not able to make a military approach work. Israel still seems to be able to hold her own; but for how long, now that a loss of confidence in American political promises appears on the horizon, if after the the Administration of President Trump is forced out, a new deal against Israel occurs.
There is more to this, but what remains to be seen is how Israel will be challenged, both internally and from her constant enemies of the Shiite persuasion, something that is now being proffered if alliances with the enemies of Israel are renewed in spite of the change in the stance of Arab peace accord partners. And to make sure this is understood in the vein of thinking of why this is going to get ugly, Israel's protection in all of this is still prophetically set; the Arabs are making the right moves, something that the rest of the world does not get right.
