whilst Benn's analysis of the current situation may be accurate, his conclusions are purely ideological. If a violent intifada ensues, this will not lead to Israeli withdrawal. The 2nd intifada of 10 years ago led to Israel re-taking the areas vacated in interim deals since Oslo, wye etc. The very opposite of what Benn predicts is likely to take place: Annexation of west bank , end of Oslo agreements; and even transfer of some militants from the west bank. Presumably the 3rd intifada will be fought with missiles from west bank to Israeli cities - this would be cause for a full scale war.
