Gideon, more than 60% of Israelis are willing to relinquish ALL the occupied territories in the framework of a peace agreement. Hence, if Israelis vote Likud is not because they support the occupation, they vote Likud because they fear that if the IDF pulls out of the West Bank, this territory will be used to fire rockets on Israel. For, Hamas's goal is not the liberation of the West Bank, but rather the destruction of Israel. Of course, it does not justify settlement activities in the West Bank. But one really has to be deceitful to deny that Hamas is largely responsible for the fact that Netanyahu is in power.
