    Israel made peace with Egypt and got out of the Sinai, because Israel came so close to defeat in 1973 and was only saved by massive US aid. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Israel has got used to being the unchallenged military regional superpower and thinking that it can do whatever it likes with the Palestinians for however long it likes. Like a lot of Brits I was please to see Israel suffer basically a defeat in the Lebanon 2 war. I don't like Hezbollah, but I suspect Israel will only ever make proper peace with its neighbours and with the Pals, when it genuinely loses its sense of military invincibility - and I don't mean all the minor BS threats that Israel endlessly declares existential. There are plenty of posters on here who would declare it an existential threat to Israel if Nasrallah sneezed.
