Israel’s self-destruction

An article in The Jerusalem Post:

My comment:

We still maintain our stubborn stance that all this evil and injustice is done to us by others.

While they seemingly execute actions, we ourselves are the sole responsible cause.

Israel could have determined its final borders by annexing the settlements a long time ago.

Especially while Trump was in the White House, it could have happened and should have happened, but it did not.

It did not happen as infighting, second-guessing, and undermining each other, personal and party ideologies, and differences in opinions have always been more important than the national unity on which our existence depends.

Now, there is a high chance that even within this year, a Palestinian State will be accepted and formalized based on the 1967 borders.

Very soon, a Hamas (or similar) governed terror state will be established with full Iranian support and a Hezbollah-style army with even nuclear warheads aiming at the destruction of Israel.

And we have only ourselves to blame.

Even now, when the trap is quickly closing on us, different factions in Israel still focus mostly on fighting one another and appeasing our enemies and waiting for “allies,” which allies are now all turning against us.

2000 years ago, the Romans only had to simply enter an already destroyed Jerusalem that was weakened and destroyed by the unfounded hatred among Jews.

We are blindly repeating the same folly as we have forsaken our method of undisputed, “supernatural” — above and against the instinctive human ego — method of unity.
