I agree with the analysis of this sorry saga bar one issue: Can Israel rightfully claim to be a Democracy and thus expect the solidarity of other Democracies? I believe by now it is accepted by all honest intellectuals, that the State of Israel is a Ethnocracy with equal rights granted only to those of Jewish descent. As long as Israel does not accept the claims of those she dispossessed, those very dispossessed will not accept Israels claims for legitimacy. The only resolution to this is a one state solution with equal rights for all as equal citizens in front of the law and equal claims to the land. I won't hold my breath waiting for that, but then again, look at what happened to the Berlin Wall....
