Spotlight: The Israel Victory Project

The Middle East Forum’s Israel Victory Project (IVP), the conceptual cornerstone behind the recently established Congressional Israel Victory Caucus and the Knesset Israel Victory Caucus launched on July 11, proposes a major re-think of how to combat the root of the Arab-Israeli conflict: Palestinian unwillingness to accept the existence of a Jewish state.

Innumerable diplomatic initiatives have failed to combat Palestinian rejectionism over the decades. Israeli concessions have been received as signs of demoralization and weakness by Palestinian leaders, inspiring them to privilege irredentist dreams of annihilation over developing their own polity, society, economy, and culture. They must be compelled to undergo a change of heart.
