Preheating the Charcoals of the Next Intifada - Nothing New Except New Converts to the Cause

Reader comment on item: Palestinian Anarchy Continues under Hamas

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jan 21, 2022 at 13:36

That Hamas can still stir the coals of hatred should not come as any surprise; but actually, they (the Islamist ideologists in Hamas) do Israel a favor - sadly, the IDF is going to be on-call for the eventuality that a new spill-over of hostilities is just beginning, again. It's truely sad.
So, many ask, why?
Dr. Pipes' forum here (indeed many platforms of discussion have devoted endless opportunities that go back centuries of uncounted reasons) tell(s) us why; but too many are quick to discount the validity for the various arguments (many, nay most, for religious reasons) and it appears the vehemence of such appears to be endless; for obvious reason: look at the source. Hamas is just one of the faces of enmity that Israel faces, yet long before Hamas was ever enacted out of the nightmares of envies that cannot ever be satiated, what was the original driving factor. Many try to equate the evil of the modern neo-fascist movements (which comes from ancient evils) and there are similatities; it does not end there; nor would it end here, even if it was thought Hamas might subside, which it will not.
Where does Israel obtain relief? Dependent upon one's perspective, not from a known or respected source; so the search for peace continues until true peace is revealed as the victory Dr. Pipes' projects, but so few realized is required. BTW; the next extension of promoting the next outbreak is being argued as this is being written.....the coals are being stoked....right now.....
