Why Israel faces a strategic defeat in Gaza

David Hearst, Middle East Eye, Mar 20, 2024

David Hearst, editor-in-chief of Middle East Eye, discusses how Israel’s war on Gaza is forcing its Western backers to confront the atrocities being committed in a campaign they had described as “just” five months ago. He argues that the ongoing genocide cases at the International Court of Justice, erosion of the Jewish consensus, and the increasing nervousness among Israel’s backers collectively indicate a strategic defeat for Israel. Hearst said: “A rubicon has been crossed. With this war, Israel has entered the elite rank of pariah states. It is now the ugliest of the ugly. It’s impossible to forgive. It cannot be justified, nor can it be put into context. The entire operation in Gaza is an atrocity.”
