The Last Phase of Arab Shame

The last line of Curzio Malaparte’s “the Skin” is:

“ I said in a low voice, ‘It is a shameful thing to win a war.’ ”

Victory in modern warfare is both a shame and a defeat. The defeated demand rehabilitation, reward, revitalisation. The victors are bankrupted, exhausted, and leaderless – their generals useless in peace. After World War Two it is Germany and Japan who emerge defeated then triumphant.

Today Israel is a victor. Absolute and unrelenting. Unconditional surrender.
