Principles of conflict resolution do not apply to a war situation
President Trump wants to apply all the principles of conflict resolution to the Middle East.
Only one problem. There is no conflict here.
There is a war which continues on a low flame, because the Arab League, which declared that war and the PLO, which continues that war, do not have the capability to beat Israel on the conventional battlefield.
Therefore, the Arab League and the PLO choose a low-intensity war strategy, until a conventional army will once again be prepared…
For that reason, the PLO nurtured the Iranian revolution in 1979.
Their hope is that, Fatah, Hamas and Hizbullah will one day combine their low-intensity war operations with an Iranian alliance.
Reversing the illusion that the Arabs remain only in a conflict with Israel remains the challenge to debunk in the years to come.
Winning the war requires a different approach: Unconditional Surrender.
