Is it Worth it?

The resolution of the Palestinian problem has for many decades been high on the agenda of the international community. A joint IDF-SDF defensive-offensive war to liberate Syria-Lebanon from the the forces of Khomeinism and Ba’athism in response to the expected massive Hezbollah missile barrage against Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities after Israel destroys the Iranian nuclear weapons program from the air would add 4 million new Median Jewish citizens to Israel’s populace when Israel annexes the Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Syria and Lebanon by treaty with the new internationally recognized governments in Beirut and Damascus. This would demographically permit Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria while opening the gates to Median Jewish immigration from around the world, including Iraqi Yezidis. Jordan would in turn eagerly annex Gaza.

The AKP is simultaneously likely to close its borders to immigration to Israel however if Israel officially recognizes its Alevi and Bektashi communities as Jewish and eligible for immigration to Israel. This alas is likely the nature of the balance of power between the AKP and the Dönmeh-led Derin Devlet in Turkey. Israel therefore would be well-advised to recognise the Druze, the Alawites, the Alians and the Yezidis but put off recognizing the Alevis, the Bektashis and the Yarsanis.

The international community community is really concerned about the Palestinian issue and it should thereofore ask itself whether the price of liberating Syria and Lebanon from the forces of Ba’athism and Khomeinism is worth resolving resolving the Palestinian issue? This will be a test as to how eager the international community really is to end that protracted Palestinian dispute. This appies in particular to Russia. Is Russia ready to be flexible and let its troops stay in their barracks and subsequently realign with the AANES (Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria) new government in Damascus which is expected to easily win the war with Israeli air support? 

There is a price tag attached to attaining lasting peace in the Levant and there is surely some cost in blood to be paid on all sides. But it’s certainly worth it.
