The days of peace is more or less over, now we are really confronting a conflict of extreme hazard.
First of all, we need to play the game in a manner that will ensure the peace in the most unconflicting way. If we play the Goliath, we will not win on the long run. It is only if we play the game with intelligence and agility that we will win.
I thought I had a few days to recover after the American election, well, I did not, I should have payed more attention to the crisis in the Middle East, not on my family. But, as things unfurl, we are bound to win, if we are playing the game as the best chess master there is.
Now, look at it this way:
If we lose the media game, we lose. It is as simple as that. Since the media are already inclined to mistrust us, if we do make small misstep, it is a game of balance and just the right move at the right time. Compared to the election fight I just did with Barack Obama, it is much more complicated, since there are many more players, but also offers a great opportunity to the intelligent player, since the mere complexity gives the player with the best grasp of the situation the best opportunity to win. Mind you, the game of the American election was a tough one, but tough in another way than what is coming. The American election was tough because it was against the tide of misconception and inertia. This one is tough because it is so physically dangerous. People get killed all the time, and in that situation it is very difficult to keep a level view of the fight.
Ok, here are some reflections that might boost us in the right direction.
First of all, there is one giant danger; we are in the danger of loosing Russia. They are inclined in the direction of the “palestinians”, and they are playing a role as mediators and kingmakers.
They still consider Israel the Holy Land, but they are drifting away. If we loose Russia, we will, unwillingly have the unfortunate role as the piece that brought animosity between Russia and the US. The US supports us, thank you Barack, but we do not need a rising conflict between Russia and the US because of the conflict we are witnessing right now. It would, again, potentially be the small push that would renew the world along the lines of the cold war. I hope it will not go that far, but in a heated environment, things go off in the wrong direction.
What the Russians are most occupied with right now, seems to be the land war. They are firmly against an attack by the infantry in Gaza. Airforce attacks are within limit, land war not. We have to respect that position.
On the other hand, we also need to stop the barrage. The attacks by the airforce are not really that efficient, it just gives Hamas incentive to continue, and as long as they have rockets, they will fire them.
This brings us to the next possible action. If we cannot stop the rockets from being fired, we can perhaps stop the rockets from being send to Hamas.
After Hamas lost the sponsorship of Iran, they switched paymasters to Qatar. So we can, in good faith and with honest intentions attack Qatar.
What is the most vulnerable part of Qatar? It is the royal family. Qatar is a kingdom, old style, it is ruled by a house of kings. This house is basically a giant family. It has numerous family members.
Well if they want to play, let us play. We can play; if you kill an Israelean citizen, we will kill a prince. Let us swap, one citizen for a prince. That would stop the alliance pretty fast.
G-d bless Israel and the peace we will and should win, if we are strong enough.
