While it is some truth in the statement that Israel avoids a political solution at is peril, it is also true that a war of attrition has been going on against Israel since the states creation and Israel has managed to survive and thrive so far. With regards to the arab peace intiative of 2002 (a good basis for a settlement), this was rejected because it was a take it or leave offer that would have potentially ended the state of Israel with an influx of the decendents of Palestinian refugees. Israel needs a political solution but not one that is national suicide.
