that Israel’s 1967 borders are undefendable.
most people can easily understand; even non-military people.
The first reason why Israel’s 1967 borders are undefendable
can be summarized in one word: center. Basic chess strategy
teaches that the four squares in the center of the board are of
great importance, even though all squares on the chess board
have the same size. If you can control the four center squares,
then your chances of winning are increased. If Israel were reduced
to its 1967 borders, then Israel would be deprived of the center.
can be summarized in two words: high ground. You do not need
to be a military expert to understand that in battle, the side that
holds the high ground probably has a significant advantage over
the side that holds the lower ground. If Israel were reduced to
its 1967 borders, then Israel would be deprived of the high ground,
and forced to defend lower ground against higher ground.
can be summarized in three words: cut-in-half. In war, skilled
generals will often attempt to gain an advantage over the enemy
army by dividing the enemy army into two camps that are
separated from each other. If Israel were reduced to its 1967 borders,
then Israel would be almost cut-in-half, even before any war began.
If Israel were reduced to its 1967 borders, then it would be
8 miles wide at its narrowest point. From the southern tip of
Manhattan to 125th Street in Harlem is also approximately 8 miles.
can be summarized in one word: distance. If Israel were reduced
to its 1967 borders, then even less-inexpensive, less-sophisticated,
shorter-range missiles would be able to easily hit every place in Israel.
could easily to dig terrorist tunnels able to reach any place in Israel.
Long terrorist tunnels would no longer be necessary,
because even short terrorist tunnels could reach Israel.
possess big advantages, before any war even began: the advantage
of holding the center, plus the advantage of holding the high ground,
plus the advantage of Israel almost being cut-in-half, plus the
advantage of hitting Israel from nearby; all before any war even began.
And you do not need to be a military expert to understand the reasons.
even if Israel were defending against equal numbers.
But Israel’s defense is not against equal numbers;
it is against Arabs who outnumber Israel by more
than 300-to-1 and against Muslims who outnumber
Israel by more than 1,000-to-1.
would make Israel undefendable.
would reduce Israel to undefendable borders, it should
be known as “the Final Solution” – the phrase used by
Nazi Germany to describe the violent elimination of all Jews.
The 2012 Arab Street Driven Security Requirements
written by retired Ambassador Yoram Ettinger
“UN Security Council Resolution 242 specifically acknowledges
that Israel need not return to the pre-June 1967 ceasefire lines,
as they are not defensible.”
Babylonian Talmud, tractate Megillah, page 7B:
UNFAIR DOUBLE STANDARD:
people who want a Jew-free Palestine are called peace-lovers;
but people who want an Arab-free Israel are called racists?
