Collateral Damage Always Contentious - Yet Never-ending in Consequences of Such Clashes

in response to reader comment: Beware of "Unintended Consequences": PA vs. Hamas, et al

Realizing that Israel has been in constant focus of the hatred many (too many indeed, for the list is never-ending), it cannot ever be understated that the consequences of 'tampering' with the destiny of the Nation of Israel is actually a perennial condition of mankind going back millennia and only just recently, is there a determination that Israel's destiny will be the determinant of the fate of nations attempting to alter that destiny. How does that translate to a wartime strategy that Israel's enemies might consider if they knew they could never win? Hard is it may seem, Israel's destiny is, as it is said many times, written in stone.
Even as it is seen, the resiliency of Israel's modern establishment cannot be rationally explained, that even as the circumstances have been decidedly traumatic towards Israel, and it may likely get even worse as may be insinuated by world antipathies towards the Jewish Nation, ultimately they are promised victory, even if not by their own hand.
The will be consequences; they are indeed in view even as the world looks to mitigate Israel's sovereignty; yet as surmised elsewhere: at what cost.
Hamas and Hizbollah are proxies, pawns if properly recognized; they are fronts. Similarly, the underdog 'Palestinian' presence is under similar patronization as a foil to frustrate the sovereign issues the rest of the world seems to desire to dominate over Israel in appeasement and acquiescence to the Iranian Islamic Regime. But it will not stop there.
As magnified as it may seem, the Iranian Regime is not Israel's greatest challenge; others will follow; all of them to their own demise. Like it is said; it is written in stone; the same stone pile that is buried on the Temple Mount.
