Communist China and the Arab Spring

Reader comment on item: Poll: Israelis Want Victory, Preferably without Paying the Price
in response to reader comment: The truth should be Israel's Hasbara.

I did not forget the 2 issues you raised, the Left and Islam[ism]

1. Although the Left plays a role in the USA through such phenomena as Critical Race Theory and Black Lives Matter which sees Palestinian as Victims by allegedly also being People of Color (non-white, allegedly), it is China which has turned the Left into Communist Capitalism, and who knows what to do with that Huge Contradictory "Dialectical Materialism" (haha). 73 Democrats just wrote a letter asking Biden to retract Trump's pro-Israel policies. Anti-Settlements is now part of a third of the Democrats, and so is calling the Disputed Territories, Occupied Territories. These Democrats believe in the 2-state solution while Hamas believes in a No-Israel Solution.

Regarding Islam, you overlook the Golden Age of Islam which Dr. Daniel Pipes is a great authority on. Islam used you be much more tolerant that the West during the Dark and Middle Ages, and even during WWII (under Hitler). You seem not to distinguish Classical Islam, from Political Islam which first emerged in 1928 as the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD. And the Climax came during the so-called Arab Spring. And we are still observing this Muslim Season turning into a Muslim Winter (The Iranian Shia Muslims as you know are not Arabs).

So an Israeli VICTORY requires a STRATEGY of how to deal with the Left Turn of the Democratic Party and the American Progressive Jews who think they know better what is good for Israel - like a Morbid 2-State Solution, or an Anti-Zionist No-Jewish Solution for Israel.

But the Muslim path for Israel is much easier - it is working closely with Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Abraham Accords of the 4 Arab States. Ironically, it is easier for Israel to deal with the Muslim States than with the Americans under the current Democratic Party under this Biden administration. Maybe things will get better in the next congressional election cycles.
