(May 10, 2021, JNS Wire) The Israel Victory Project (IVP), an initiative created by the Middle East Forum to call for Israel to be victorious against its enemies, has called on the Israeli Government to once and for all defeat Hamas and other organizations involved in the attacks on and in Jerusalem today on Jerusalem Day.
“It is time for victory, there is no other choice,” Gregg Roman, Director of the Middle East Forum, said. “Without a clear and decisive victory that will force Hamas and other terrorist organizations into submission, they will continue to decide what Israel and its citizens can do, and when they will need to run to bomb shelters.”
“The State of Israel should break the will of Hamas to continue fighting. It is possible and we have seen many terrorist organizations defeated in recent years, so there is no excuse for anything except total victory.”
The call by the IVP comes on Jerusalem Day when Arab riots ensured that no Jewish worshippers were allowed on the Temple Mount and rerouted the annual parade. In the afternoon, Hamas launched seven rockets at Jerusalem and its vicinity, causing hundreds and thousands to run to safe rooms and bombs shelters.
“A reality in which Jews are unsafe in our capital city, Jerusalem, is unacceptable,” said Nave Dromi, director of the Middle East Forum’s Israel Office. “Our enemies need to know that we too have boundaries.”
The Israel Victory Project is an initiative that has brought together high-level politicians, military experts, experts and other decision-makers and opinion-shapers towards the view that the Israel-Palestinian conflict will only end when the 100 year violent Palestinian rejectionism is defeated.
