    e: "Given that your 'defensive expansionism' thesis only lies at the outcome of the Six Day War -as only Golan Heights and Judea/Samaria are still under occupation" The logical fallacy is this: just because a policy has failed does not "prove" that this was never the policy. You seem to forget that WHILE Israel still held the Sinai it did, indeed, get busy building "Jews only" settlements there. That they eventually abandoned that settlement enterprise should not obscure the fact that before Yom Kippur thumped some sense into it Israel was *quite* determined to keep the Sinai for itself. e: ...."reading IDF & basic military doctrine. In which you will find that since Israel is really small, wars should be waged in enemy territory to be able to defend better as well as better political outcomes" And where does "colonization" fit into that rosy picture, eze?
