Israel-Hamas hostage crisis. To the war that will never end

Dr. Saraut points out that the war between Israel and Hamas is still ongoing, and Netanyahu cannot stop it because it would be equivalent to a crushing political defeat, and the United States still wants it to continue. Identifying sustainable solutions must begin with Palestinians selecting their state-building representatives.

Date: November 30, 2023 Dr. Sarawut Ari, Director of the Center for Islamic Studies, Institute of Asian Studies, Chulalongkorn University, gave an interview on the program “Khun Khun Kaw” broadcast on the “News One” satellite channel on the topic “Israel and Hamas” Hostage crisis into a war that will never end? “

At some point this war shows no signs of ending, Dr. Sarawot said. During the ceasefire, a division also occurred between the parties in Netanyahu’s government. There have been threats that if a permanent ceasefire agreement is reached, he will withdraw from the coalition, and Netanyahu is under pressure from some in the coalition to continue the war. Meanwhile, Netanyahu has no will to stop the war now. Because stopping now equals a loss. Netanyahu has always said that he wants to eliminate Hamas, but he has not succeeded. His desire to completely control the Gaza Strip has not yet succeeded. He wants to rescue the hostages using military means but they are still unsuccessful. In particular, there is a much less popular case of the latter. There were marches demanding that he step down from power. If we stop now, we will suffer a crushing political defeat.

Therefore, the trend will continue towards war. Now we are negotiating to obtain the largest possible number of Israeli hostages. Because more of these hostages could get out. The more praise he gets.

Dr. said. Sarawat: The one who has the greatest weight in stopping Israel is the United States. Because it is the country that provides the largest financial support to Israel in the world. Including weapons, but today we must admit that the United States encourages the continuation of the war.

Dr. said. Al-Sarwat said that everything today after this crisis depends on the Palestinian people. The European Union said today that, after the crisis, it will appoint the Palestinian Authority, led by Mahmoud Abbas, to be the representative of Palestine in managing all Palestinian lands to develop them into a state. But who is the European Union? Why did you come forward and say that this person represents Palestine? Why don’t they let the Palestinians choose for themselves who will lead them in building the state?

The real process of resolving the Palestinian problem, and today we must begin by choosing a representative for Palestine. Then it will lead to sustainable solutions.
