Lesson 3: So long as the Palestinians can be provoked into doing what the government of Israel wants, then the Palestinians will lose because Israel has an overwhelming superiority in fire power. Lesson 4: Hamas has figured out how to defeat Israel, but there are plenty of marginal Palestinian organizations of the lunatic variety, who are more than willing to defeat Palestine because that is what the government of Israel wants them to do. Lesson 5: As long as there are Palestinians willing to do what the government of Israel wants them to do, Palestine will lose. Lesson 6: As long as there are Palestinians willing to do what the Israeli right wants them to do, Israel will lose. Lesson 7: As long as the Israeli right and Palestinian lunatics are allowed to rule. . . .
