    Aluf Benn falls in to the old trap that "if only Israel returns to the pre-67 (Auschwitz - according to Abba Even) lines, then everyone will love us. The Arabs don't recognize even the pre-67 lines, even if Israel withdrew, they would still say Israel is an Apartheid state, Israel is responsible for the supposed suffering of the 1948 refugees, etc. The Europeans and US would see a weak vulnerable Jewish state and it would only be perceived as a liability. Just like in 1967. De Gaulle and the Europeans were ready to throw Israel to the dogs, doesn't Aluf Benn remember that? This was BEFORE the "occupation" of Judea/Samaria/Gaza. Running away and destroying Jewish communities in Judea/Samaria will only strengthen those who hate Israel and will alienate our few friends. WAKE UP!
