There is a good reason that Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah has accepted UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which sets the terms for a cease-fire between his jihad army and the State of Israel.
The resolution represents a near-total victory for Hizbullah and its state sponsors Iran and Syria, and an unprecedented defeat for Israel and its ally the United States. This fact is evident both in the text of the resolution and in the very fact that the US decided to sponsor a cease-fire resolution before Israel had dismantled or seriously degraded Hizbullah’s military capabilities.
By handing a victory to Hizbullah, the resolution strengthens the belief of millions of supporters of jihad throughout the world that their side is winning and that they should redouble efforts to achieve their objectives of destroying Israel and running the US out of the Middle East.
Glick har tyvärr helt rätt. Att Israel accepterar denna resolution är inget annat än ren en katastrof. Och det är inget annat än en skam att Bushadministrationen pressade Israel till att acceptera den.
Detta dokument kan mycket väl bli vår tids motsvarighet till det dokument som Neville Chamberlain sade skulle garantera ”fred i vår tid”. Och vi vet ju alla hur det slutade. För att verkligen förstå implikationerna av denna resolution, måste ni läsa Glicks artikel.
