Into the Fray: Israel Victory Initiative – Quo vadis?

It is unrealistic to expect that the ‘Palestinians’ will experience a sudden “aha moment”, slap their forehead in epiphanic realization of the futility of their Judaeocidal endeavors—and, of their own volition, docilely declare defeat. “… what is our aim?

Into the Fray: The IDF & Gaza: Soldiers or sociologists.

 Has the IDF brass forgotten that they are soldiers, charged with providing military solutions to physical threats to the nation’s security; not sociologists, tasked with diagnosing the societal ailments of its enemies?  …the IDF General Staff has been insisting there is only one thing Israel can do about Gaza.
