What Does The Eleven Days of May Trigger?

Reader comment on item: Who Won, Israel or Hamas?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 7, 2021 at 22:10

Here is the initial take on the out come of the 'Eleven days in May' that actually makes to most sense. Dr. Pipes poses: [Returning to the central question of "Who won?": the verdict depends not on Israeli doubts or Palestinian boasts but on what follows in the years to come.] Exactly, spot on.
How does one make such an assertion when the glee of the 'Palestinian' frontmen doing the bidding of the Iranian Islamic Regime and keeping American 46th Administration's eye off the ball have got everyone not looking at the real result of the 'Eleven Days of May'? Seriously, actually the question that begs from the good Doctor's observation is what's next?
The COVID-19 epidemic struck Israel pretty hard, not as drastic as some countries it may seem. but enough to completely derail any successes that might have come from the Abrahamic Accords, the real trophy in the clashes that culminated in the Eleven Days of May. But the government collapsed.
It may as well have been a coup, for the results, just like in America, where prosperity disappeared as quickly as a cleverly executed slight of hand could do; and an engineered set of circumstances put into play the singularly most dramatic imposition of fear the world has experienced in generations, world wars not withstanding. But wait, there's more.
As the Doctor intimates, if Hamas is able to regroup in a short amount of time, while this observer does not believe they will have ultimately won, they will have made the day of the Iranian Islamic Regime's day of rage a more sure situation as Israel is put further to the fire and defense becomes more problematic.
As the good Doctor says: [it is too early to assess those 'Eleven Days in May'].
