Strategy of Isolation

From Derech Emet...


[Mohamed] Heikal [editor of the influential Al Ahram
Egyptian newspaper, in year 1971] called for a change
of Arab rhetoric:

no more threats of throwing Israel into the sea;
and a new political strategy aimed at reducing Israel
to indefensible borders and pushing her into diplomatic
and economic isolation.

He predicted that
<< total withdrawal >>
<< pass sentence on the entire state of Israel. >>

Shalom and Regards,

Actually my father figured out the perfect strategy to destroy Israel years ago - make peace with it, open trade, etc. Without an external enemy we'd wipe ourselves out within a few years.
