Providence creating an opportunity for an Israeli "victory"?

Thank you Terry for pointing out this significant statistic.

As you know, Dr. Daniel Pipes advocates for an Israeli Victory for a long time. However, I could not understand what that entailed Tactically or Strategically - until recently. This is because "Victory" is primarily a military term implying some form of violence, though it is also used metaphorically.

But things have changed Historical - or in Current Events. Iran, which Israel's greatest Strategic enemy, is currently preoccupied with riots in the streets demanding "Death to the Dictator.' Furthermore, the World (or its UN) is currently preoccupied with the "Special Military Action" of Russia in Ukraine. That coincidentally has the effect of Changing the Paradigm (Paradigm Shift) as to what International Law is in Fact (de facto), as opposed to Theory (de Jure). Notice that while so many, many, Ukrainian children are being killed by the Russian Army, one Palestinian child (heaven forbid, of course) is killed by the "Apartheid" (Israeli) "Occupation," the Palestinian Islamist Imperialists hope to win over sympathy from the Left, Liberal, and Progressives. What Parent would allow their children to throw rocks at armored Israeli vehicles? I would say only Palestinian who, incidentally, perfected the Suicide Vest quite a while ago (under the administration of Yasser Arafat, by the way). What happens to Ukrainians who peacefully confront the Russian Occupation in Ukraine/ We do not see because there is no way a journalist would be permitted to leave alive from the battle zone with videos or photos of the Genocidal anti-Ukrainian administration of Putin of the "revived" soviet union. We overlook that in fact the Soviet Union was a euphemistic for the Russian Empire in modern times - that is certainly Putin's thinking if one reads his explicit writings.

The unknown parameters are the upcoming Israeli elections next month, as well as the selection. for 5 years, of the next Leader ("Feurer" = "leader" in German) of China.

So Israel's Victory partly depends on confronting the Antisemitism and Self Interest of the World as demonstrated by the votes in the General Assembly of the United Nations. However, one should not be too harsh on the World, when a significant part of it is Neutral on the issues related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. In this regard, the meaning of Peace is clear - it comes through Victory.

Should there now be Palestinian Refugees fleeing into their own Culture Zones? In this context I maintain that Egypt is the most important Muslim (majority) country because it has a substantial Christian population (15% Coptic) population, and because it houses the al-Azhar University, the most respected Islamic institution what tells the world what a Muslim is and what he or she can do or not do.
