Only lasting peace is achieved through thorough defeat of one side.
Example: US defeating Germany & Japan so conclusively, a permanent peace emerged. The adversaries of WWII have not fought ever since!
OTOH every negotiated cease-fire has proved to be temporary.
If Israel wants peace it has only one option...complete and total defeat & destruction of the enemy.
History is your best teacher. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.
A Seventh Century civilization doesn't need 'em anyway.
Next time...the reply to Egypt should be “We begin nuking Cairo in 5 minutes”. Lets see Egypt’s reaction to that
The only country in that part of the world that cares on iota about peace is Israel.
"And I helped". Thanks for your service.
The day is coming when Israel will have to deal with Egypt and Hamas, as a prelude to destroying Iran’s nuclear capability.

That should worry Egypt and Jordan more than Israel.
Hillary! and Obama bring lasting peace, if Israel cooperates
Egypt Warns Israel: Anymore Retaliation For Rocket Barrages Will End Peace
“Only lasting peace is achieved through thorough defeat of one side.”
You speak the truth! Name one conflict since WWII that has achieved anything but a continuing stalemate and protracted killing. We have chosen “not to win” every time we have gone to war since. We left Korea worse than when we started there, SEA, don’t see anything good there. Bosnia, nope, Iraq, a waste of treasure and the lives of our young men, Afghanistan, ditto. It’s a disgraceful record!
