If you are interested in an Israeli citizen’s view on the war in Israel, a man who is a legitimate journalist and an IDF reservist, I highly recommend that you listen to the podcast, “Call Me Back” led by Dan Senor, where he has been interviewing Haviv Rettig Gur. They offer updates on conditions in Israel.
In his weekly discussion with Gur, they share opinions you often won’t hear in the mainstream media. Gur often expresses an unconventional attitude about events in Israel, and it’s so refreshing to hear a different point of view. I must admit, however, that I was shocked (as was Dan Senor) at Gur’s take on the international opinion on Israel. I also celebrated his belief.
Some people are tracking the world’s opinion carefully, worried that Israel will lose its commitment to the war when others are critical of them for their determination to be victorious, as they pummel Hamas into submission, and for the number of civilians who may be killed during these efforts. The “experts” believe the Israeli strategies will work against them and make the war longer and more difficult, and that Israel may lose.
Gur shared a very different opinion. He believes that negative world opinion will inspire the Israelis, who are determined to let nothing or no one stop them in their efforts toward victory. Every judgment inspires them. Every angry assessment motivates them. In the past, Israel may have paid attention to these complaints and calls for cease-fires and compliance. But not this time.
Israel is resolute and they will fight until Hamas is decimated and defeated.
Israel will be victorious.
