Aluf Benn makes a good point in remarking the reality of Israel's power in the world context. Russia can simply overcome and annex Chechnia by force and give Chechnians citizenship. China can do the same with Tibet. The world will protest, but these two super nuclear powers can put up with sanctions and condemnation. The rest of the world cannot boycott them, nor go to war against them. Israel can't play that game, she can't overcome and annex the WB & G (or big chunks of them) by force and give Palestinians citizenship. Israel depends too much on the USA (even if some right wingers fantasize that she doesn't). In colloquial speech: a bear or a tiger (China or Russia) can eat a mouse without complications, but a mouse (Israel) cannot eat another mouse because its entrails would burst.
