The zionist mind simply can not conceive that Israel will ever suffer a reverse. Never. So they are perfectly content to snatch territory by force and simply hunker down on it, assuming that if they hunker down long enough the other side will eventually have to throw in the towel. But what if the other side throws down the gauntlet? And, furthermore, what if they win? Israel can end up losing the lost i.,e. losing everything that it has spent long decades hunkering down on, only to be rudely reduced to a rump state within the Partition Line in the blink of an eye. This is why Israel is running a terrible risk through this monumental act of hubris, and it is made all the more inexplicable because Israel CAN crystalize its current gains tomorrow; all it needs to do is accept the Saudi Plan, and then everything up to the Green Line is hers for ever and ever more. Too greedy. Too stupid. Too thuggish.
