AS THE CONFLICT between the democratic and secular State of Israel continues with the enemies of humanity—it is absolutely essential to know there is a light at the end of this tunnel.
In other words, victory is within reach for the IDF in Gaza; however, with conditions attached, which shall be explicitly identified in this piece of writing.
But there is no doubt that there is grief in Israel, indeed, we are all deeply sad for what has happened, and there are tears for the tragedies that the beloved has been afflicted with. But after hardship, there is ease, and there will no more grief after the day this war is finished forever.
But now is not the time to be thinking of ease, or wanting to run away; indeed, the conclusion of any project is the most defining and decisive portion that cannot be sacrificed by artificial constraints, such as time or politics, or public opinion.
In philosophy, it is commonly taught to conduct thought experiments in order to know the consequences of a hypothesis or theory, if it were true or implemented. Therefore, for the purposes of our brief discussion on the situation for Israel, let us put on our intellectual caps and do a simple thought experiment.
Imagine if an architect designed a foundation and pillars for the construction of a building, and even details about specific rooms and doors, but rejected a roof.
What kind of a building would it be?
The fact is that even though the most critical element in the architect’s design plan of the building is present, which is the foundation, and the fact that the second most important element is also present, the pillars, the design is still a failure. And if the plan is implemented, it would create endless problems for the inhabitants of this building. Why? Because there is no roof to protect the inside of the building from the direct light of the sun in the summer nor from the rain and snow of the winter.
In this way, in war there is a concluding stage, where the process is properly finalized, and everything is completed. At this precise point in time, the campaign to permanently remove the tunnels of terror, and prevent another attack like the October 7 from happening again is not complete. There is an enormous amount of work left, and it is important to work through all the phases of this war that was imposed on us without our choice. Victory is certain for the State of Israel, but the conditions that must be met are simply that the job be concluded when it is finished, not according to other factors that have no bearing on the military objectives and methods.
