Israel’s End Game in Gaza Must Be Cutting the Iran-Hizballah Noose
The United States should desist from insisting that the end game of Israel’s war against Hamas focus on Gaza's future. Failure to support Israel in dealing with Iran and its proxies as its end game might mean the difference between a stable Middle East led by US allies or an Iran-controlled region embedded in the competing axis.
An Israeli Perspective on the Gaza War and Its Broader Implications
The October 7 War has implications that stretch far beyond the Middle East. The United States has become deeply involved, signaling that the war is more than a just local Israeli-Palestinian armed conflict, it is about the struggle for supremacy in world politics.
China is increasingly hostile to Israel
Beijing failed to condemn Hamas for the October 7 massacre and has accused Israel of going “beyond self-defense” in its response. China is using the conflict to position itself as a superpower to rival the United States in a multipolar world. Its interests are averse to Israel’s.
Making Tehran pay the price for October 7
High-ranking Iranian officials praised Hamas’ brutal massacre of Israeli civilians, thereby demonstrating their unwarranted support for crimes against humanity. Iran funds and supports the murder of Israeli and Jewish civilians and endorses antisemitic ideology. If the regime is not made to pay a price, Iran will have no reason to stop its subversive aggression.
