Policy, Strategy, and Tactics

Reader comment on item: How Can Israel Win the Palestinian Conflict?

Submitted by Robert (United States), Jan 7, 2023 at 14:51

The good news is that you are writing a book on Israel - I believe is will be an informative text.
But the hard part of your writing is precisely given in your own words: You support a Policy of an Israeli Victory. But you avoid discussions of Strategy and Tactics - to achieve an Israel Victory.

You do support a two-state solution in the long run - so way not have a new future Palestinian state with at least 20% Jewish citizens? There is no reason for Israel to oppose "settlements" in Samaria Judea or Jerusalem the Capital for that matter.

It appears to be a great idea for Egypt to "control" Gaza and Jordan the West Bank. In fact, except for being anti-Israel, the Palestinians are deeply divided between Gaza and the West Bank Palestinians. So there should even be a de facto 3-state solution, under the fact That Hamas rules Gaza and Fatah, etc., is the dominant ruling Palestinian entity outside Gaza. Regarding Jordan, it may need a revolution in Jordan where more than half the people are in fact Palestinians.

In summary, what is difficult about your thesis is precisely the deduction of strategies and tactics to achieve an Israeli Victory.
