Does the Western model work ?

Reader comment on item: Israeli Victory, Palestinian Prosperity
in response to reader comment: There are signs

Submitted by DEBANJAN BANERJEE (India), Jul 24, 2021 at 06:05

Dear Dr Pipes,
After reading your articles on the West Asian politics for so long, I have come to believe that the Western model of Modernity does not work in the West Asian region. All the problems in the region come from a basic lack of understanding on the part of Westerners that their models of modernity does not work in the Muslim context and the Western Asian region does need a completely new model of modernization that is completely exclusive of Western experiences.

Israel's main problem is that it was created based upon the Western ideals of modernity and henceforth cannot work. In my view a one-state solution is the only solution to all the problems in this region.

I would love your views on the same.
