West Cannot Stop the Continuing War

Reader comment on item: Give War a Chance
in response to reader comment: Western complicity

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 5, 2021 at 15:46

Recalling Dr. Pipes here and in other of his dissertations regarding the cause (especially the contentions of empire from the Ottoman Caliphate lost over a hundred years ago) and the effect of subsequent efforts to regain what was lost, it cannot be helped to notice that none of this would ever have gotten so far were it not for the inability of the West to prevent war, and the 'Palestinian' cause counts on the Western anti-Semitism to further its cause for instability and rejectionism of the Jewish Nation. It is complicity of the sinister kind.
Further, like this observer noted recently on this same topic, [it was never truly expected that the 'Palestinian' situation would ever 'calm down,' expecting this latest round of violence in the name of Islam was likely a 'no-brainer,' given that violence would be the only way debate in the PA/Fatah/Hamas is able to articulate their common hatred for Israel and irrespective of the PA' s governance being compromised by Abba's intractability and internal conflicts, attacking Israel is their best way to deflect their failures and throw blame on Israel.]
The caveat here is that now a differing perception of how Israel is expected to defend itself may need to take a different tact. Intersecting that is PA's Abbas is himself in a dilemma; and keeping Israel as the focus of the West's ire towards the pall the 'Palestinians' are in that he himself causes is the fallback approach for status quo antagonisms. Worse than that, the Iranian Islamic Regime counts on that also.
That's how the American 46th Administration is manipulated also.
