Can we try and be honest for a second. Hamas is destroyed. Do you believe there will now be peace? I say no and it will only get worse unless there is an occupation.
It's more nuanced than that.

Initially, Hamas will be wiped out.

But longer term Israel is stoking hatred in Gaza and around the world. They should incentivize the Arab leaders to stop the killing.

Which Arab leaders? Hamas leaders already have power and money, what incentive could Israel offer them?

He means including the antisemitic pro-terror CAIR in this national strategy, & refusing to adapt the IHRAís definition to keep ďprogressivesĒ happy.
Those blinders

Is this National Strategy still around ? What are they doing ? Havenít heard anything from them.

For example, Israel should blockade all foreign aid unless it comes with conditions.

Thatís a threat, not an incentive.

Israel doesnít get to decide where other countries choose to direct their aid, so that point is moot. It also happens to be it would make them seem anti-humanitarian.

And then it turns all of Gaza into prime beachfront property for the rebuild

Not if they only flood them 2-3 feet

Any alternative approach would likely cause tremendous loss of soldiers.
And before anyone says that Israel has a bigger obligation to the hostages. you need to remember, the IDF  are conscripts.
On the morning of Oct/7 most of these soldiers were practically civilians too.

Didnít read the article, but actually thought about this yesterday. You flood it slowly. And you hope everyone comes out when the water reaches their necks. Personally donít like it though. Itís one thing to take a chance that Hamas kills the hostages. Itís another thing to shoot and then and hope Hamas will protect them.
